  "description": "<p>The Electric Smart Grid (ESG) is referred to as the next generation electricity power network. It is an intelligent critical infrastructure aiming to create an automated and distributed advanced&nbsp;energy delivery network while preserving information privacy and&nbsp;offering protection against intrusions. This study proposes the implementation of an Anonymous Incident Communication Channel&nbsp;(AICC) amongst smart grids across Europe to improve situational&nbsp;awareness and enhance the security of the new electric intelligent infrastructures. All participating organizations will have the&nbsp;ability to broadcast sensitive information, stored anonymously in&nbsp;a repository, without exposing the reputation of the organization.&nbsp;However, the technical details of the attack will be available for&nbsp;everyone to take appropriate countermeasures. The advantages of the AICC are the exchange of real-time security data and&nbsp;<br>\nanalysis, the circulation of best countermeasures practices, the&nbsp;comparison of various security solutions both from a technical&nbsp;and operational viewpoint and the ability to establish an open&nbsp;dialogue amongst anonymous peers who represent smart grid&nbsp;organizations (e.g., power plants) across Europe. This work focuses on the requirements of establishment, the possible obstacles, and proposed data protection techniques to be applied in&nbsp;the AICC. Furthermore, were explained some details of the documentation of cyber-incidents &nbsp;Last but not least, were also provided the benefits and the potential risks of this AICC concept.&nbsp;</p>",
