Resilience Talk 5 - Monday 29 March 2021, 15:00-16:00 BST
Towards Operational Cyber Resilience
Kerstin Eder, University of Bristol, UK
Existing approaches to cyber security in the automotive sector are not fit to deliver the resilience required for safe mass deployment of advanced driving features and smart mobility services. In this seminar I will introduce an innovative multi-directional approach to operational cyber resilience, the CyRES methodology, which aims to enable the delivery of robust and resilient engineering practices in this sector from design, via manufacture to operation. CyRES is based on three principles: increasing the probability of Detection, Understanding and Acting on Cyber Events; increasing the number of Engineered Significant Differences; and invoking a continuum of Proactive Updates. I will motivate and explain these principles on examples, focusing mainly on the first two. CyRES is an exciting opportunity for engineers and computer scientists to re-target widely studied, mature methods, such as those developed by the self-adaptive systems community, for cyber security. The aim of this seminar is to raise awareness of the challenges and to highlight some of the ways for attendees to contribute to realise the CyRES vision.
This seminar covers research conducted jointly with Carsten Maple, WMG, University of Warwick, Peter Davies, Thales, UK, Chris Hankin, Imperial College London, Greg Chance, Trustworthy Systems Lab, University of Bristol and Gregory Ephiphaniou, WMG, University of Warwick as part of the Cyber Resilience in Connected and Autonomous Mobility project ResiCAV.
