The first ECSCI Workshop on
Critical Infrastructure Protection
Virtual workshop, on Google Meet conference room,
24 June 2020, 09:00-17:10 CEST
25 June 2020, 09:00-15:30 CEST
Modern critical infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex, turning into distributed, large-scale cyber-physical systems. Cyber-physical attacks are increasing in number, scope, and sophistication, making it difficult to predict their total impact. Thus, addressing cyber security and physical security separately is no longer effective, but more integrated approaches, that consider both physical security risks and cyber-security risks, along with their interrelationships, interactions and cascading effects, are needed to face the challenge of combined cyber-physical attacks.
This workshop will present the different approaches on integrated (i.e. cyber and physical) security in seven different industrial sectors, such as finance, healthcare, energy, air transport communications, gas, and water. The peculiarities of critical infrastructure protection in each one of these sectors will be discussed and addressed by the different projects of the ECSCI cluster that will present their outcomes, discussing the technical, ethical and societal aspects and the underlying technologies.
Specifically, novel techniques will be presented for integrated security modelling, IoT security, artificial intelligence for securing critical infrastructures, distributed ledger technologies for security information sharing and increased automation for detection, prevention and mitigation measures.
The workshop will include keynote speeches, project presentations, roundtable and panel discussions and thematic presentations. It is intended for scientists and experts in the field of critical infrastructure protection, CISOs, CIOs, CERTs, CSIRTs, CSOs, cyber and physical security experts representing different sector and policy makers for Critical Infrastructure protection.
The workshop will foresee several thematic presentations on:
Physical and Cyber-Security integration and modelling
Cyber and Physical Detection
Collaborative Risk Assessment and impacts
Security information sharing
Repository to exchange knowledge and sharing rules
Increased automation for detection, prevention and mitigation measures
Ethical and legal aspects of cybersecurity
