Smartmetering Security Architecture

I was deployed for nine months to one of the Big Six Energy Suppliers as the Security Architect on their Smart Metering Programme, which will bring intelligent Electricity and Gas metering to six million customers by 2019. As the Smartmetering Security Architect I was responsible for the high-level Security Strategy and Architecture and ensuring that systems integrators met the functional and non-functional security requirements that I specified.
