"I loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter – very interesting and thought-provoking. I also enjoyed the author’s style and his technical expertise shone through." Christopher Wright, Wright CandA Consulting Ltd Protecting critical information infrastructure (CII) is not an easy process. Risks need to be minimised and systems adequately protected. It is an endless balancing act, where one side is constantly on the defensive and the other on the offensive. Lessons Learned: Critical Information Infrastructure Protection aims to help you be as successful as possible in protecting your CII, and do so quickly with minimum effort, irrespective of whether you work for a critical infrastructure service provider, a company that organises the provision of critical infrastructure services, or a company that serves critical service providers. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience in the IT and cyber security sectors, the author defines critical infrastructure services and provides structured lessons for each chapter, summarising each with key takeaways, including how to: Describe the critical infrastructure service and determine its service level;Identify and analyse the interconnections and dependencies of information systems;Create a functioning organisation to protect CII; andTrain people to make sure they are aware of cyber threats and know the correct behaviour. The key message – organisations must be prepared to provide critical infrastructure services without IT systems – is reinforced in the final chapter: “We must have some way of continuing to work even if computers fail”, writes Mikko Hypponen.

Key sectors of modern economies depend highly on ICT. The information flowing through the resulting technological super-infrastructure as well as the information being processed by the complex computing systems that underpin it becomes crucial because its disruption, disturbance or loss can lead to high financial, material and, sometimes, human loss. As a consequence, the security and dependability of this infrastructure become critical and its protection a major objective for governments, companies and the research community. CRITIS has been born as an event that aims to bring together researchers and professionals from universities, private companies and public administrations interested or involved in all security-related heterogeneous aspects of critical information infrastructures. This volume contains the proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Critical Information Infrastructure Security (CRITIS 2006), that was held between August 31 and September 1, 2006 on Samos, Greece, and was hosted by the University of the Aegean, Department of Information and Communication Systems Engineering, Laboratory of Information and Communication Systems Security (Info-Sec-Lab). In response to the CRITIS 2006 call for papers, 57 papers were submitted. Each paper was reviewed by three members of the Program Committee, on the basis of significance, novelty, technical quality and relevance to critical infrastructures. At the end of the reviewing process, only 22 papers were selected for presentation, resulting in an acceptance rate of 38%. Revisions were not checked and the authors bear full responsibility for the content of their papers.

The issue of protecting essential infrastructure against the threat of terrorist attack is one which continues to concern governments worldwide. But terrorism is not the only threat this infrastructure may face: environmental hazards, industrial accidents and sabotage are also major concerns. Protecting critical infrastructure is expensive, but many of the solutions apply whatever the cause of the problem, and in these days of scarce resources, multi-sector or multi-threat solutions are preferred. This book presents the proceedings of the NATO Centre of Excellence – Defence against Terrorism (COE-DAT) Advanced Research Workshop entitled Critical Infrastructure Protection, held in Ankara, Turkey, in May 2012. The workshop brought together 44 participants from 13 countries and consisted of five sessions: a general overview of policy, tools and techniques; the realities of implementation; protection of energy infrastructure; protection of communications and information infrastructure; and protection of transport infrastructure. The papers were presented by 16 expert speakers – military and civilian practitioners, business leaders, diplomats, and academics – from 6 countries, and each was followed by a detailed discussion and debate. The workshop concluded with a summary of all the topics reflected in the individual papers presented. This book represents a significant contribution to furthering the science of counterterrorism, and will be of interest to all whose work involves all aspects of Critical Infrastructure Protection and the terrorist threat to infrastructure.

The information infrastructure – comprising computers, embedded devices, networks and software systems – is vital to operations in every sector: chemicals, commercial facilities, communications, critical manufacturing, dams, defense industrial base, emergency services, energy, financial services, food and agriculture, government facilities, healthcare and public health, information technology, nuclear reactors, materials and waste, transportation systems, and water and wastewater systems. Global business and industry, governments, indeed society itself, cannot function if major components of the critical information infrastructure are degraded, disabled or destroyed. Critical Infrastructure Protection XIV describes original research results and innovative applications in the interdisciplinary field of critical infrastructure protection. Also, it highlights the importance of weaving science, technology and policy in crafting sophisticated, yet practical, solutions that will help secure information, computer and network assets in the various critical infrastructure sectors. Areas of coverage include: Aviation Infrastructure Security; Vehicle Infrastructure Security; Telecommunications Systems Security; Industrial Control Systems Security; Cyber-Physical Systems Security; and Infrastructure Modeling and Simulation. This book is the fourteenth volume in the annual series produced by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.10 on Critical Infrastructure Protection, an international community of scientists, engineers, practitioners and policy makers dedicated to advancing research, development and implementation efforts focused on infrastructure protection.

Cyber Physical Threat Intelligence for Critical Infrastructures Security

Cyber Physical Threat Intelligence for Critical Infrastructures Security

Presents integrated security approaches and technologies for the most important infrastructures that underpin our societies.

Modern critical infrastructures comprise of many interconnected cyber and physical assets, and as such are large scale cyber-physical systems. Hence, the conventional approach of securing these infrastructures by addressing cyber security and physical security separately is no longer effective. Rather more integrated approaches that address the security of cyber and physical assets at the same time are required. This book presents integrated (i.e. cyber and physical) security approaches and technologies for the critical infrastructures that underpin our societies. Specifically, it introduces advanced techniques for threat detection, risk assessment and security information sharing, based on leading edge technologies like machine learning, security knowledge modelling, IoT security and distributed ledger infrastructures. Likewise, it presets how established security technologies like Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), pen-testing, vulnerability assessment and security data analytics can be used in the context of integrated Critical Infrastructure Protection. The novel methods and techniques of the book are exemplified in case studies involving critical infrastructures in four industrial sectors, namely finance, healthcare, energy and communications. The peculiarities of critical infrastructure protection in each one of these sectors is discussed and addressed based on sector-specific solutions. The advent of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is expected to increase the cyber-physical nature of critical infrastructures as well as their interconnection in the scope of sectorial and cross-sector value chains. Therefore, the demand for solutions that foster the interplay between cyber and physical security, and enable Cyber-Physical Threat Intelligence is likely to explode. In this book, we have shed light on the structure of such integrated security systems, as well as on the technologies that will underpin their operation. We hope that Security and Critical Infrastructure Protection stakeholders will find the book useful when planning their future security strategies.

All critical infrastructures are increasingly dependent on the information infrastructure for information management, communications, and control functions. Protection of the critical information infrastructure (CIIP), therefore, is of prime concern. To help with this step, the National Academy of Engineering asked the NRC to assess the various legal issues associated with CIIP. These issues include incentives and disincentives for information sharing between the public and private sectors, and the role of FOIA and antitrust laws as a barrier or facilitator to progress. The report also provides a preliminary analysis of the role of criminal law, liability law, and the establishment of best practices, in encouraging various stakeholders to secure their computer systems and networks.
