The 2nd International Symposium for Industrial Control System & SCADA Cyber Security Research (ICS-CSR 2014) brings together researchers with an interest in the security of industrial control systems in the light of their increasing exposure to cyber-space. 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 very pleased to have a number of high quality research contributions this year that range from research experience in setting up test-beds for ICS research to descriptions of new attacks and defences against existing industrial control systems. The research reported this year in ICS-CSR is covering socio-technical aspects of ICS security as well as technical subjects such as automated security analyses of industrial plants.
We would like to thank Kaspersky Lab for running the Kaspersky Industrial Protection Simulation as part of the ICS-CSR symposium, and Airbus Innovation Works and St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences for helping in the organisation of 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 St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences and of course the dedicated authors for submitting their work to this event.
