Scope of the seminar
Vital services continuity is a major societal security issue in modern society. The supply of the vital services is guaranteed thanks to a large variety of Critical Infrastructures (CIs). Some CIs’ disruption may endanger the security of the citizen, the safety of the strategic assets and even the governance stability.
The CIs are more and more connected thanks to the information technology (IT) and supply services in every aspect in man’s daily-life. The continuous progress in the IT fields pushes modern systems and infrastructures to be more and more: intelligent, distributed and proactive. That increases not only the operational complexity of the CI’s but their vulnerability. The more complex a system is, the more vulnerable it will be and the more numerous are the threats that can impact on it. The loss of operability of critical infrastructures may, thus, lead to severe crises.
Engineers, designers, operators and legislators should enhance the system preparedness and resilience facing different threats. That requires continuous efforts and resources of all kinds in a variety of fields. One of them is “Modelling, Simulation & Analysis (SM&A)” of the CI in order to enhance the CIs’ preparedness & resilience.
The European Safety, Reliability and Data Association (ESReDA) as one of the most active EU networks in the field has initiated a project group (CI-PR/MS&A-Data) on the “Critical Infrastructure/Modelling, Simulation and Analysis – Data”. The main focus of the project group is to report on the state of progress in MS&A of the CIs preparedness & resilience with a specific focus on the corresponding data availability and relevance.
In order to report on the most recent developments in the field of the CIs preparedness & resilience MS&A and the availability of the relevant data, ESReDA will hold its 56th Seminar on the following thematic: “Critical Services continuity, Resilience and Security”.
The 56th ESReDA seminar will be held on May 23-24, 2019, hosted by Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.
