Infrastructure Resilience - ELVIRA
The Elvira project develops time-based infrastructure dependency analysis for the power-grid to model risk assessment and resilience index, which assist decision makers in anticipating failures and their cascading effects.
First ELVIRA Workshop on Threat Modeling and Resilience of Critical Infrastructures
Venue: 7A Centralen, Vasagatan 7, Stockholm, Date/Time: October 24, 2017, 9:30-16:00
Critical infrastructure such as the power grid, the traffic network, healthcare, water supply and others are vital for keeping the society striving. The ELVIRA project supported by the European funds on internal security (ISF) aims at increasing the understanding of cascading effects of failures of critical infrastructure components, in particular the power grid. ELVIRA focuses on modelling critical infrastructure networks, collecting real-time data about the true state of the network, as well as on algorithms that forecast the imminent consequences of failures in the network.
The workshop is the initial open workshop of the ELVIRA project and shall bring together representatives of the network operators and researchers in the fields of planning, managing, monitoring, and analyzing networks of critical infrastructure. The project is currently in its initial phase, giving you the opportunity to influence it by providing your perspective on the security challenges.The workshop aims to gather domain knowledge from participating experts and to discuss the following questions:
- Given our different backgrounds, what are the main threats to the security and function of critical infrastructures (in particular the power grid)?
- What are the components of critical infrastructures and in which way do they depend on each other (cascading effects)? What are our experiences and knowledge concerning cascading effects? Which are the key components and dependencies that might lead to such major events?
- Which data sources can be utilized to assess the current status of a critical infrastructure network? Which relevant data sources are you aware of in your organization or from your background?
The workshop will start with an introduction to the ELVIRA project. After an introductory round, the workshop participants jointly discuss the challenges facing today’s critical infrastructures. The results shall be the basis for possible joint collaborations on critical infrastrcuture protection subjects.
The meeting aims at raising awareness on cyberattacks against critical infrastructure and create collaboration opportunities between relevant stakeholders.
