Cybersecurity Challenges

DATE:  Monday 4 December 2017

LOCATION:  Seminar room Python (room 2269), Ole Johan Dahl's House.


14:00h Welcome at IFI

14:15h Invited Talks:

  • The Usual Insecurity of ThingsKeith Martin,  Royal Holloway College, University of London
    While the Internet of Things is used to describe a host of new lightweight technologies, when it comes to security it pays to focus less on the novelty of IoT, and more on what IoT applications have in common with previous technologies that have learned about security the hard way (by first getting it wrong). It's time to go back to basics, and reflect on what security means in cyberspace. Only once this is understood, can we hope to secure any type of application that resides there.
  • System-wide Probabilistic Vulnerability Assessment Using Attack GraphsMathias Eckstedt,  Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm
    T-systems are today highly complex and interconnected into large systems-of-systems. With the ongoing digitalization systems are becoming even more all encompassing and integrated. Ensuring a high-level of security in such system environments is a challenge that thus requires a holistic approach addressing multiple and a diverse set of attack surfaces and potential attack vectors. This presentation describes previous and ongoing work with combining probabilistic attack graphs and system architecture modelling as a means to produce design and maintenance support for security engineering of system architectures.
  • Cybersecurity in the Norwegian Energy SectorJanne Hagen,  The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE)
  • Title T.B.A.,  Tord Persokrud,  Conax
  • Defending Critical Infrastructure from Espionage and SabotageFrode Hommedal,  Telenor SOC and CERT

16:00h Panel and Discussion


  • Keith Martin (Bio TBA)
  • Mathias Ekstedt is Professor in Industrial Information and Control Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. His research interests include software, systems, and enterprise architecture modeling and analyses with respect to information and cyber security. In particular the research is applied in the power industry and information systems related to physical monitoring and control. He is currently engaged in the EU FP7 project SEGRID (security for smart electricity grids) and the nationally funded Resilient Information and Control Systems (RICS) center. He is also co-founder of foreseeti, a start-up company developing a tool for cyber security modeling and analysis.
  • Janne Hagen (Bio T.B.A.)
  • Tord Persokrud (Bio T.B.A.)
  • Frode Hommedal is a senior incident responder and analyst. He is currently head of incident response and security analytics at Telenor CERT, where he’s part of the team that is establishing the global CERT/SOC capability of Telenor, Norway’s biggest telco, with over 200 million customers and presence in South-East Asia, Easter Europe and the Nordics. He has previously worked seven years for the Norwegian national CSIRT, NorCERT, mostly with targeted intrusions. One of Frode’s main interests is modelling CSIRTs to improve performance.
