Dependencies in Modern IT Systems

The variety of dependencies in modern IT systems provides several advantages, but also has a strong impact on the security and resilience of these systems. A number of recent incidents, such as the “SolarWinds attack” on US governmental agencies, underline the difficulty of securing systems that are composed of various apparently independent components.

How aware are organisations of their IT dependencies? How do they manage them? How are dependencies taken into account in the decision process? The goal of this workshop is to gather experiences, and to present approaches that tackle these dependency issues, from theoretical and practical points of view.

This event is organized by the Swiss Support Center for Cybersecurity (SSCC), in collaboration with the Center for Digital Trust (C4DT) at EPFL and the Zurich Information Security Center (ZISC) at ETHZ.
