Resilience assessment of cyber-physical energy systems (CPESs), such as the electric power grid, is a critical operation to maintain availability, reliability, and quality of service in the presence of persistent threats from malicious cyber actors. This talk will present Hybrid Attack Graph (HAG), to provide a flexible and efficient approach to generating attack sequences for the CPSs. Real-world attack scenarios will be discussed to highlight simulation-driven, graph-based approaches for CPS resiliency experimentations.
Behavioral Security Research in Information Systems
Power systems are being increasingly exposed to extreme weather and natural hazards with catastrophic consequences on modern societies, revealing at the same time significant challenges and limitations in current network planning and operation standards in providing hedge against such events. This has placed resilience in the spotlight of system operators, planners and decision-making bodies around the world.
