Recently, smart grids have become a vector of the energy policy of many countries. Due to structural and operation features, smart grids are a constant target of combined and simultaneous cyberattacks. To maximize security and to optimize existing network schemes to prevent cyber intrusion, in this paper, we propose an approach to decision support in finding and identifying the most potent attack combinations that can set the system to maximum damage. The main purpose is to identify the most severe combinations of attacks on smart grid components that potentially can be implemented from the perspective of the attacker. In this context, the problem of finding weaknesses points in the network configuration of a smart grid and assessing the impact of events on cyberinfrastructure is considered. The technique for detecting and investigating the strongest combinations of cyberattacks on the smart grid network is given with an example of the analysis of the spread of pandemic software in a system with arbitrary structure.
