Polish state-owned electricity distributor Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) announced on 30 January that it will initiate cyber security cooperation with its counterpart Israel Electric Corporationface. The CERT team of the Israeli company that is responsible for the operation of the Polish national energy system is already working together with its counterparts in Norway and the USA. PSE Representative Eryk Klosowski highlighted the importance of sectoral cooperation in the area of cyber security with regard to mutual collaboration among various advanced cybercrime actors and their sophisticated techniques.

The 2015 cyber attack on Ukrainian power grid has shown that the electricity distribution sector is one of the most prominent targets in terms of cyber-aggression, the attack of which can have a major impact on local population. It has also reminded that cyber attacks can accompany both hybrid and conventional conflicts. The aforementioned cyber actions against Ukraine have pointed to the vulnerability of critical infrastructures, which has been reflected at the doctrinal level, for example, by the new Ukrainian cyber security strategy.
