Cyber Security for Manufacturing Environments - 17th October 2018 - Brussels (Belgium)

17/10/2018 to 19/10/2018

The workshop on "Cybersecurity risks and solutions for manufacturing settings"is organised by ECSO in cooperation with European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) and with the Directorate‑General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT).

The aim of the event is to draw attention to the fundamental importance of cybersecurity challenges in manufacturing environments, where they are not yet fully recognised and addressed.

Although more and more industrial and manufacturing companies consider themselves a lucrative target for cyber criminals, only a handful of them has taken adequate measures to secure their systems and infrastructure. Starting from this situation, the workshop will provide insights into:

  • Needs and requirements for a secure and resilient manufacturing environment
  • The state of the art and how current solutions address the current needs
  • Current and future key enabling technologies and cyber security approaches
  • How research and innovation projects and European or International Initiatives are already addressing cybersecurity in manufacturing
  • Future requirements and pathways towards secure-by-design manufacturing environments and better integration of cybersecurity in existing systems

The registration for the event of the coming 17th October 2018 are still open here.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29
25/03/2019 to 29/03/2019

The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
