Case Study

Educational Competences with regard to Resilience of Critical Infrastructure

Abstract:

Current critical infrastructures can be considered Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), which seamlessly integrate human, physical, and computational elements. Data for this case study is collected from 16 R&D projects from three Finnish universities. Results indicate that future CPS competences are multidisciplinary, and include many industrial sectors, academic disciplines, and theories.

The Threat Response Spy Files: A Case Study about an Arms Manufacturer, a Private Intelligence Company and Many Infiltrators

ABSTRACT

British Aerospace paid a private intelligence company to spy on CAAT, the Campaign Against Arms Trade. Daily reports on activists’ whereabouts were sent to Britain’s largest arms dealer by Evelyn le Chêne, a woman with a well-known record in intelligence work. Analysing the original spy documents, this paper will address two sets of questions. One involves the implications for grassroots work, the other raises the issue of appropriate research methodologies.

Hacking the Human: Countering the Socially Engineered Attack

ABSTRACT

The security model developed here suggests that a focus on systemic changes to an organisation’s processes can produce improved security.  This model of security is novel in that it is designed to ease reliance on the human within the system, therefore reducing the likelihood and impact of social engineering attacks. It highlights the layer of human protection and the systemic protection that can be placed around information. This layered approach to security is original in that it is applied in a social engineering context. The model is then used to map the attacks and their respective countermeasures.
