DLS in Cyberecurity: Grand Research Challenges for Cybersecurity of Critical Information and Infrastructures

Prof. Paulo Esteves-Veríssimo, University of Luxembourg

Abstract:
Computing and communications infrastructures have become commodities which societies largely depend on, transacting huge quantities of data and exhibiting pervasive interconnections, sometimes in critical conditions. However, the actual magnitude that security and dependability risks may assume, is often misperceived. The information society has been assuming risk behaviours, without the adequate protection. Many stakeholders, not only end-users but vendors, service providers, public administrations and - what may be surprising - even governments, seem to ignore those risks, in different ways.
