Interoperability of our critical Infrastructure is contingent upon convergence, or connectivity between technological systems that need to share information and interact with one another to perform necessary functions for the operation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS), power, water and waste water, fuel pipelines, global communication, critical manufacturing, food & agriculture, and emergency systems, etc. The safety, availability, and uptime of our critical infrastructure and it’s cyberphysical system components are contingent upon robust, resilient, and secure communications. Cyberphysical System Integrations & Interoperability Communications Security (CSIICS/C6) as a discipline within the broader Cybersecurity umbrella seeks to address such threats to the communications layer(s) of these systems by working to identify threats, assess risk and impact to systems of critical infrastructure, and to research and develop ways to mitigate said threats in a resilient, flexible, and future-proof fashion that can be built-in and upon in order to stand the test of time and evolve with Cyberphysical Systems as they grow in complexity and scale.
