POSTPONED: Reducing Cyber Risk Exposure when Developing Cyber-Physical Systems: Engineering Mixer & Luncheon

Due to illness, we regrettably must postpone this event. We’ll update this page and our email list when we have a new date.

Topic Summary

Cybersecurity is the protection of valuable assets and as such must be integrated into core engineering processes. A major difference between traditional design, development, maintenance, test, and use of cyber-physical systems and cyber protection of those same systems is a change in the assumptions about circumstances and what can be trusted.

Prior to cybersecurity concerns, engineers usually trusted that the information, tools, and systems used were developed by well-meaning people to do the intended function and any errors were caused by human mistakes or hardware/software issues. Real malicious intent was rarely considered or identified, and any indications of such intent probably would have been attributed to a cause other than a cyber-attack.

Protecting systems from cyber-attacks depends on challenging and changing old assumptions and carefully examining each element to ensure items and circumstances are understood and secured. This changes the way systems are analyzed for cybersecurity and the way protections can and should be applied.

In this session, you will be presented with a new paradigm: incorporating risk analysis into the engineering process, resulting in security built-in versus security bolted-on.
