The CDT-EI is holding a Foresight Lecture by Prof Awais Rashid, University of Bristol, on Cyber Security Risks.  The event is free to attend (registration is necessary) and visitors will have the opportunity to find out what the CDT-EI students and co-sponors are working on in our exhibition entitled "What do CDT-EI students do?"

Abstract:

Industrial Control Systems play an important role in the monitoring, control, and automation of critical infrastructure such as water, gas, oil, and electricity. Recent years have seen a number of high profile cyber attacks on such infrastructure exemplified by Stuxnet and the Ukrainian Power Grid attacks. This naturally begs the question: how should we manage cyber security risks in such infrastructure on which the day-to-day functioning of our society relies? In this talk I will discuss insights from three years of research studying cyber security in such settings. The talk will highlight the complexity of managing security in a landscape shaped by the often competing demands of a variety of stakeholders, e.g., managers, control engineers, enterprise IT personnel and field site operators. I will also discuss how the security decision-making patterns of the various stakeholders contrast, with some surprising (or perhaps not so surprising) insights into the decision patterns of security experts and so-called non-experts.
