Cyber-Physical Systems Security Education through Hands-on Lab Exercises

Speaker:  Charalambos Konstantinou – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy

Abstract

As information and communication technologies become more embedded into our daily life, cyber-physical systems (CPS) have attracted extensive attention from industry, academia, and the government because of their wide impact to the environment, economy, and society. One key problem in the area is the separation of cybersecurity education in different science and engineering disciplines. Cybersecurity expertise typically comes from the computer science domain lacking engineering practices, while engineers often do not understand cybersecurity in-depth. Hence, training and education in CPS security has become a priority in order for students to acquire more knowledge and skills in this critical field. Course material delivered in traditional lecture formats may not grab the attention of students. In this talk, we will discuss how to foster interest in cybersecurity education as well as enable engagement and participation in this area through hands-on lab exercises which encourage experimentation in the context of CPS security.
