Event: The Safety and Cyber Security of Industrial Control Systems

Date / Time: Tue 20 November 2018 / 09:30 – 16:30 GMT
Location: National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), London
Registration: Eventbrite

Cyber-attacks against safety systems are now a reality and could significantly impact our way of life. How can we take this option off the table for attackers?

This event will be organised jointly by NCSC and our Industrial Control Systems Community of Interest (CoI). The subject of this event is the Safety and Security of Industrial Control Systems and Operational Technology (ICS/OT).

It is intended for anyone who has a responsibility or interest in control systems from UK based users to integrators and suppliers of ICS/OT. These will include asset owners, vendors, integrators, UK policy makers, regulators and academia.

Event: WIHST Technical Workshop

Date / Time: Mon 26 November 2018 / 09:30 – 15:10 GMT
Location: Tavistock Room, Woburn House, London
Registration: Please email p.sakya@imperial.ac.uk to say you would like to attend

You are invited to a one-day technical workshop for the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)-funded project “Workshops in Healthcare Science and Technology” (WIHST), hosted by Professor Emil Lupu, Professor of Computer Systems at Imperial College and Deputy Director of the EPSRC-funded PETRAS Research Hub.

The healthcare technologies sector is booming in the UK. Yet very little work has been done in the area of cyber security and internet technologies as they apply to health.

We see a future where healthcare records across the country will be integrated and standardised. Where medical devices are interconnected and easily accessible by computers and mobile devices. Where technologies such as health test kits and robotics will be used to help the elderly and infirm. And where computers and mobile devices can provide a virtual GP service that uses AI to deliver healthcare to patients and the general public.

But with these developing technologies come inherent risks. These interconnected systems can be vulnerable to attack by viruses, trojans and malware by a range of malicious actors. Data can be obtained fraudulently and used to blackmail healthcare providers. How can we protect against this? This is where the WIHST workshops come in. If you want to play a role in this developing initiative, you must attend this workshop.

RITICS is a portal to cutting-edge UK research into the cyber security of cyber-physical, critical systems.

The programme is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

RITICS is coordinated by the Institute for Security Science and Technology; Imperial College London’s hub for security research and engagement.

At the The Institute for Security Science and Technology we coordinate interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary research in security across Imperial College London. We further act as a security science, technology and innovation interface for academia, government and industry.
