Well-integrated risk and security management becomes more and more important due to the fact that cyber criminals use a company’s critical infrastructure to achieve data and information.

This workshop in Vienna, Austria includes new methodologies, concepts and tools towards the security and risk assessment for critical infrastructures. It covers 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.

We are kindly inviting you to join our presentation.

6 June 2016: MEDUSA International Conference

On June 6th, the MEDUSA International Conference will take place in Valencia. The main issue will be “Cyber-Security in the Supply Chain: New Approaches and Challanges”. Despite the proliferation and advancement of risk assessment methodologies for Critical Information Infrastructures (CIIs) most risk assessment frameworks do not adequately addressthe various cascading effects that are associated with security incidents occurring from interacting entities. This gap is very critical in the case of ports’ security, given that ports are CIIs characterized by significant interdependencies at multiple levels (infrastructural, national, intra-sectoral). This conference addresses innovative approaches to port security from different points of view, involving security service providers, state security managers, port operators and critical infrastructures.

You can find more information about the conference here.
