#3 postponed: Cyber Protection of Hydrogen, a Hazardous Material in Use of the Energy Transition (09 Dec)

Objective: The overall objectives of the workshop are to share Israeli knowledge, including the recently published “Cyber ​​Guide to the Hazardous Materials Industry” with Dutch experts, to develop possible R&D cooperation and more.

Background: To combat climate change, the Dutch government wants to reduce the Netherlands’ greenhouse gas emissions by 49% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels, and a 95% reduction by 2050. The transition from fossil fuel and natural gas (Methane), which produce CO2, to clean and renewable energy, such as hydrogen, is one of the measures the Netherlands is taking. However, the energy transition also poses new environmental challenges, such as hydrogen’s hazardous properties as well as possible cyber-attacks on its production, maintenance, transportation, storage and more.


This workshop is aimed at sharing Mr. Yosi Shavit’s expertise in addressing cyber challenges of hazardous materials. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

Topics to be covered include

  • Major challenges in cyber protection of hazardous materials plants 
  • The risks of maintaining and transporting hydrogen from cyber aspects
  • New regulation in Israel regarding cyber protection for the hazardous materials industry
  • The first and most unique methodology in the world for cyber protection in the hazardous materials industry
