Description

Critical infrastructures have increasingly moved into the focus of cyber criminals and hacktivists over the last years. Thus, a comprehensive and well-integrated risk and security management has become of particular importance to those organizations. Nevertheless, current frameworks and methodologies often do not meet the specific needs of critical infrastructures and their highly interconnected cyber-physical systems.

In this workshop, new methodologies, concepts and tools towards the security and risk assessment for critical infrastructures will be presented. Being developed in several EU projects, these approaches reflect the leading-edge research activities on critical infrastructure protection. The workshop sessions will cover innovative concepts for identification and analysis of attacker behaviour and potential threats, the assessment of cascading effects in infrastructure networks, the influence of the human factor on security and the protection of physical perimeter. An additional focus of the workshop will be current legislation and standardization initiatives. Furthermore, live demonstrations will be prepared to showcase the implementation of these concepts in realistic use case scenarios.
