Cybersecurity for all: from critical infrastructures to IoT devices

C: Mizzi, 16/06/2017 (13:30-16:00)

This session will explore the challenges of securing different types of devices, from big infrastructures ensuring the normal functioning of the society to small Internet of Things (IoT) appliances, which can be found in a steadily increasing proportion of houses. In view of today’s practical problems related to cybersecurity, the session will seek new ideas and proposals on how to facilitate the application of high security standards across different fields. Particular attention will be also dedicated to the case of quantum technologies.

Panel 1, Addressing present and future cybersecurity challenges – The European approach

The Panel will tackle cybersecurity challenges posed to critical infrastructures and possible policy solutions to address these issues. Among others, panellists will be asked to share their views on how an EU initiative on certification of information and communications technology products could strengthen Europe’s cyber resilience. Particular attention will be dedicated to the role of quantum technologies in securing critical infrastructures (such as the aviation sector).

Panel 2, IoT devices and cybersecurity: the energy sector on the spot

The Panel will discuss possible cyber-risks posed by the spread of IoT devices (e.g. smart home appliances connected to the energy grid). Furthermore, it will examine processes, procedures and policy actions which would increase security and protect consumers. As a case study, the panel will seek to explore under which circumstances or agreed rules, smart grid operators and consumers can trust IoT devices that are connected to the energy grid.
