The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) with funding support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of the Europe and Eurasia Cybersecurity Partnership launched a work on cybersecurity in December 2016 (https://www.naruc.org/international/news/black-sea-regulators-on-path-to-effective-cybersecurity-strategies/) in an effort to equip energy regulators from Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine with the tools and technical capacity to work with utilities in preventing and mitigating cyberattacks and to improve and safeguard overall energy security in the region. Defining a cybersecurity strategy is also critical in finding balance between technical goals of implementing effective protections and “right-sizing” the response in a cost-effective manner. 

In this context, a group of experts by CNR-Ircres were asked to cooperate with NARUC to prepare a guidance text for energy regulators dealing with cybersecurity (https://www.naruc.org/international/news/evaluating-the-prudency-of-cybersecurity-investments-guidelines-for-energy-regulators/). The work is deeply rooted in the Essence experience both for useful approaches and for the practical evidence it provides, which cannot be found in any later study. 

While the guidelines "Evaluating the prudency of cybersecurity investments: Guidelines for Energy Regulators"(by Elena Ragazzi (editor), Alberto Stefanini, Daniele Benintendi, Ugo Finardi, Dennis K. Holstein) were developed for the Europe and Eurasia region, much of their content can be applied universally.
