Title: Methods to Decompose and Address System Cyber Security Threat Risks
Description: Attendees will discuss ways to review an overall system, such as Hospital IT Infrastructure, Rail Signaling System, or Autonomous Vehicle, and evaluate the risks both present inherent operation and vulnerable to malicious attack. Explore common industry cybersecurity attacks such as Stuxnet, the Tesla lane monitoring system hack, and others. There will also be an exercise reviewing a hypothetical physical/digital system (such as an Airport Security Theoretical System Design), An overview of Kanban processes for program management will be provided. Finally, attendees will separate into three to four groups and use this mechanism (using “t-shirt sizing” planning with post-it notes) to evaluate how to prioritize development to mitigate cybersecurity risks.
