CRITIS 2018 KEYNOTES
Dr. Stefan Lüders
Head of Computer Security at CERN, Switzerland
Bridging the gap between ICS and corporate IT security: Finding common culture and views
25 September, 2018 (Plenary Session)
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is a unique one-off prototype within the particle physics community. The accelerator itself and its attached experiments are development, managed and operated from a world-wide community of physicists, engineers and technicians. In parallel, CERN serves as a university-like campus for this community and provides the IT environment for massive data storage, computing clusters and any other service needed to enable collaboration and research. As such, "one-off prototype" and "world-wide community" plus the general attitude of an academic environment present particular challenges in securing CERN’s data centres, the office networks and the multitude of different control systems deployed for running the LHC and its experiments.
Stefan Lüders, PhD, graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and joined CERN in 2002. Since 2009, he is heading the CERN Computer Security Incident Response Team as CERN’s Computer Security Officer with the mandate to coordinate all aspects of CERN’s computer security – office computing security, computer centre security, GRID computing security and control system security – whilst taking into account CERN’s operational needs. Dr. Lüders has presented on computer security and control system cyber-security topics at many different occasions to international bodies, governments, and companies, and published several articles.
