Infrastructure security: Reliability and dependability of critical systems

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


The security, agility, and robustness of large-scale critical infrastructure are discussed. Of the particular importance is the reliable availability of inexpensive, secure, high-quality electrical power and high-performance communication networks. With the increased interdependence between IT and electricity infrastructures, the energy industry is tightening its hold on its networks, even in the face of deregulation and resulting commercial competition. Digital technology can make a vital contribution to reliability and security by enhancing infrastructure systems' resilience and flexibility to withstand terrorist attacks and natural disasters.
