For more effective decision making in preparation for and response to cyberevents in the energy sector, multilevel situation awareness, from technical to strategic is essential. With an uncertain picture of evolving threats, sharing of the latest cybersecurity knowledge among all sector stakeholders can inform and improve decisions and responses. This paper describes two novel solutions proposed during the formation of the European Energy – Information Sharing & Analysis Centre (EE-ISAC) to build situation awareness and support information sharing. The development of the EE-ISAC towards regular information sharing among members is described. This demonstrates the foundations achieved so far upon which a situation awareness network can be built for the energy sector.
