  • Title: ICT security in Industrial Control Systems: an Overview
  • Speaker: Alessio Coletta
  • Event date: Wednesday, 27 November 2013 - 11:30 AM
  • Location: Sala Direzione Edificio Ovest (FBK)
  • Abstract: Most industrial processes are controlled and operated by systems that heavily use ICT components and that are not isolated as they used to be. Hence, cyber threats can be a major concern for critical infrastructures like energy power generation, water / gas transportation, and so on. An overview of some specific aspects of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) is presented, together with some insights about their cyber security issues and possibile solutions.
