CIPSEC (H2020): Enhancing Critical Infrastructure Protection with innovative SECurity framework (CIPSEC)

In recent years, the majority of the world’s Critical Infrastructures CIs evolved to become more flexible, cost efficient and able to offer better services and conditions for business opportunities. Towards this evolution, CIs and companies offering CI services had to adopt many of the recent advances of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) field. (…) As part of this framework CIPSEC will offer a complete security ecosystem of additional services that can support the proposed technical solutions to work reliably and at professional quality. These services include vulnerability tests and recommendations, key personnel training courses, public-private partnerships (PPPs) forensics analysis, standardization and protection against cascading effects. All solutions and services will be validated in three pilots performed in three different CI environments (transportation, health, environment). CIPSEC will also develop a marketing strategy for optimal positioning of its solutions in the CI security market.

Critical Infrastructures (Communication, Transportation, Banking, e-Commerce, Utilities etc) increasingly and inextricably depend on IT-technologies to provide for both functionality and efficiency. However, the cost of the IT-reliance is the consequent exposure of the Critical Infrastructure (CI) to IT-based security vulnerabilities. The state of the practice often has different CI’s developing customized security solutions to meet their specific needs. While this is judicious, the CI’s can benefit from sharing approaches to intrusion detection, threat classification, diagnostics, mitigation schema, security architectures and many others. The workshop aims to bring together viewpoints from diverse CI’s to explore the commonalities of security problems and solutions for advancing the collective science and practice of CI security protection.
The workshop encourages both CI research and practitioner contributions covering design, assessment, testing and deployment experiences.

Topics of interest comprise but are not limited to:
• Security requirements
• Threat models for critical infrastructures and communication networks
• Threat detection, classification and profiling
• Incident management
• Security architectures and frameworks for critical infrastructures
• Risk assessment – co-mingling of safety and security
• Security validation
• Experience reports and best practices from different infrastructure domains
• Data sharing
