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.
Joint ISF Workshop on
Protection of Critical Infrastructures
Stockholm, World Trade Center,7A, 2019-11-28, 9:00-16:00
Critical infrastructure, such as the power grid, the traffic network, healthcare, telecommunications, and water supply, are vital for keeping the society striving. The Second Joint ISF Workshop presents two Swedish projects funded by the Internal Security Funds (ISF) that are investigating methods to better protect Swedish critical infrastructures in a complementary way. In 2019, the focus is on project results and on getting into a conversation with critical infrastructure operators on possible ways to use these results to strengthen the infrastructure.
ELVIRA: This project investigates methods to forecast cascading effects of cyber attacks on the Swedish power grid. A combined model of the IT and power grid components is developed from which simulation models are derived to assess the vulnerability of the power grid. The project is carried out by the University of Skövde and Combitech AB.
CENCIP ISF: This project centers around the dependencies between several critical infrastructures, such as the communications network, the power grid, and the railway system, and their implications for cross-sector risk management of these systems and the potential effects on society at large. This project is carried out by the University of Lund.
Hence, CENCIP ISF and ELVIRA are complementing each other. ELVIRA focusses on a single (but complex) critical infrastructure upon which many other infrastructures depend upon. CENCIP ISF has a comprehensive view and assess the effects of disruptions in certain critical infrastructure on the society.
Together, the projects create a knowledge base on how to protect critical infrastructures against attacks or natural threats. This knowledge is made available to decision makers and to operators of critical infrastructures. This workshop is part of our effort to pass on the knowledge gained so far. You also have the opportunity to assess our project results and provide guidance on where we should put invest our efforts in order to provide solutions relevant to your infrastructure protection needs.
Participation of infrastructure domain experts to this workshop is free but requires a registration. The number of seats is limited, so we ask you to register no later than October 15th by expressing your interest to
