TALK: Integrating Safety and Security using Systems Theory
By using a new model of causality based on systems theory, an integrated and more powerful approach to both safety and security is possible. While our novel safety techniques are now being used in most industries, we realized only recently that the same approach applies to security, both cyber and physical. We will discuss the model, its application to security, and recent evaluation of its application to cyber security on real defense systems.
