The 1st International Symposium for Industrial Control System & SCADA Cyber Security Research (ICS-CSR) brings together researchers with an interest in the security of industrial control systems in the light of their increasing exposure to cyber-space. The topics of interests are broad, ranging from security for hardware/firmware used in industrial control systems, to system aspects of ICS such as secure architectures and vulnerability screening, to the human aspects of cyber security such as behaviour modelling and training. ICS-CSR is a research conference aimed at high quality academic research in the cyber security of industrial control system from the hardware, system and human-factor perspectives.
We are delighted to have a number of very exciting and interesting contributions to this year’s event ranging from threat analysis work to detailed technical advances made in the field. In particular we are looking forward to two very distinguished keynote speakers to address you during the event. Dr Sally Leivesley (Newrisk) will update you on the technical and human aspects of cyber terrorism and Thomas Brandstetter (Fachhochschule St. Pölten) will revisit the current state of play in the aftermath of Stuxnet.
We would like to thank EADS-Cassidian and EADS Innovation Works for sponsoring this event. A particular thank you to all the members of our programme committee for providing so timely and excellent reviews of the submissions, the local organisers at De Montfort University and of course the dedicated authors for submitting their work to this event.
