The ECSCI 2020 Virtual Workshop

Call for Participation – The ECSCI 2020 Virtual Workshop !!

Virtual Event | 24 – 25 JUNE 2020


We would like to encourage you to attend The First ECSCI (European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures) virtual workshop to be held on June 24-25, 2020, gathering interdisciplinary professional communities to debate on the protection of critical infrastructures in the domains of finance, healthcare, energy, air transport communications, gas, and water. The workshop program includes keynote speeches from the EC, ENISA, and ECSO, 10 H2020 projects results presentations, roundtable and panel discussions, and thematic presentations.

You are welcome to register for the free workshop at the following link:

Modern critical infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex, turning into distributed, large-scale cyber-physical systems. Cyber-physical attacks are increasing in number, scope, and sophistication, making it difficult to predict their total impact. Thus, addressing cyber security and physical security separately is no longer be effective, but more integrated approaches that consider both physical security risks and cyber-security risks, along with their interrelationships, interactions and cascading effects, are needed to face the challenge of combined cyber-physical attacks.

​This workshop will present the different approaches on integrated (i.e. cyber and physical) security in seven different industrial sectors, such as finance, healthcare, energy, air transport  communications, gas, and water. The peculiarities of critical infrastructure protection in each one of these sectors will be discussed and addressed by the different projects of the ECSCI cluster that will present their outcomes, discussing the technical, ethical and societal aspects and the underlying technologies.

Specifically, novel techniques will be presented for integrated security modelling, IoT security, artificial intelligence for securing critical infrastructures, distributed ledger technologies for security information sharing and increased automation for detection, prevention and mitigation measures.
