19 October 2018 - The protection of data circulating on the net, the prevention and ability to react to natural disasters or attacks, the distribution of energy efficiently and safely or the state of security of our cities. European researchers and operators active in the critical information infrastructure security sector met on these issues from 24 to 26 September in Kaunas, Lithuania, as part of the 13th edition of theInternational Conference on Critical Information Infrastructure Security (CRITIS).

The conference also hosted the CIPRNet Young CRITIS Award (CYCA), an award dedicated to the most innovative international research projects on critical infrastructure security carried out by young researchers.

The international commission rated the study ofing. Luca Faramondi, research fellow of the Automatics Unit UCBM, “Discovering vulnerabilities in heterogeneous interconnected systems” (Search for vulnerabilities in heterogeneous interconnected systems).

The study aims to support the design and protection of networks by identifying the presence of critical issues in order to improve their resilience and operations in the event of attacks or malfunctions.
