IOSec 2018 : International workshop on Information & Operational Technology (IT & OT) security systems

13 September, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

collocated with the 21st International Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and Defenses ( RAID 2018)

Call for papers

The recent advancements of ICT have given the opportunity to companies, public administrations and various Critical Infrastructures to offer new and innovative services and at the same time lower their operational costs. These advancements however, were quickly adopted without proper evaluation of their impact on security, leaving current IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems vulnerable to various kinds of cyberattacks. The International workshop on Information & Operational Technology (IT & OT) security systems aims to bring together viewpoints from diverse areas to explore the commonalities of security problems and solutions for advancing the collective science and practice of IT and OT security protection.

CIPSEC EU project

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 offers 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.

List of Topics

- Security architectures and frameworks for enterprises, SMEs, public administration or critical infrastructures

- Threat models for systems and communication networks

- Threat detection, classification and profiling, Incident management

- Security training

- Risk assessment – safety and security

- Security validation, testing platforms and developments

- Hardware security, Cryptographic engineering

- Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention

- Secure Software Development, Malicious Code Analysis

- Digital Forensics

- Identity and access management

- Privacy Enabling Technologies

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. We expect all papers to provide enough detail to enable reproducibility of their experimental results.
