ENCS’ new member, Milence — heavy duty EV charging specialists comprising of Daimler Trucks, the TRATON GROUP and the Volvo Group — boosts EV cybersecurity

Non-profit membership organisation The European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS)  brings together critical infrastructure stakeholders and security experts to deploy secure European critical energy grids and infrastructure. 

The organisation, founded in 2012, provides cyber security solutions through its network in academia, government and business, alongside engaging its dedicated researchers and test specialists to work on applied research, defining technical security requirements, component and end-to-end testing, as well as education & training.

“It’s fantastic to welcome Milence, a key player of European CPO infrastructure and the first to join our network,” says Anjos Nijk, Managing Director of ENCS.

“Milence’s membership is a testament to our track record in supporting European CPO cybersecurity and its connected infrastructures with the practical solutions they need. With accelerated rollout of EVC infrastructure across Europe, Milence joins at a critical period and we look forward to the industry expertise and knowledge it will contribute to our network.”

Strengthening the cybersecurity of Europe’s energy sector

Milence is ENCS’ first Charge Point Operator (CPO) member, a perfect fit as Milence commits to building and operating 1,700 high-capacity public heavy duty EV charging points in Europe by 2027.

“Cybersecurity is a particularly demanding field that requires constant questioning of its practices and knowledge,” comments Peter Westerveld, Chief Information Security Officer, Milence.

European EV public charger stock reached over 600,000 by the end of Q3 2023, marking a nearly six times increase in comparison to 2020. 

Milence has joined ENCS to support the identification of its cybersecurity needs, risk analysis and testing of its assets, and the practical solutions required to maximise cyber protection. Charging points represent a high demand on the grid, and therefore also are highly susceptible to the corresponding associated risks.

“ENCS has a clear track record in supporting CPOs with their cybersecurity needs, which will help us to further strengthen our practices,” Westerveld continues. 

“I am delighted that Milence is joining the ENCS community and sharing our industry skills and knowledge with the wider network.”
