About Us

Cybersecurity for Robotics (cybersecurityforrobotics.com) is the platform that unites cybersecurity, ethics and safety experts with robotics experts from manufacturers, end users, system integrators and researchers. It is dedicated to the fast evolving and demanding domain Robotics, with the aim to identify risks and opportunities in relation to Cybersecurity. Cybersecurity experts are investigating and identifying vulnerabilities of robotic systems, provide ideas and solutions on how to assess current and evolving platforms and installation s and provide valuable insights on how methodologies and technologies could be applied in current and future systems or how to best mitigate legacy platforms. Cybersecurityforrobotics.com covers the industry- and research domain investigating the cross cutting research topics related to risk management, industrial control systems security, cybersecurity, cyber-physical systems, safety, robotics, industrial control systems security, IoT, Industry 4.0, real time communication systems, privacy, AI and other related relevant domains.

This platform will be a body of knowledge and reference platform, collecting and structuring, researchers, cybersecurity experts, manufacturers, end users, use cases, research, activities (events and conferences) and other relevant materials (market data, specialized articles, … ). It serves also as the platform that aims to create further awareness about the topic and acts as an ethical supervisory body over new robotic developments that don’t take Cybersecurity seriously.

Cybersecurityforrobotics.com organizes an annual conference  in 2019 operated by LSEC – Leaders In Security, Alias Robotics and the Basque Cybersecurity Center, in collaboration with the TRINITY project, the European Robotics Forum, ECSO, the RODIN project, EFFRA and together with specialized cybersecurity SME’s and robotics manufacturers. The first conference has been organized in Bilbao, Spain on November 18-19th.

Cybersecurity for Robotics

 

Cybersecurity for robotics is a multidisciplinary research domain that is growing in relevance and importance due to the continuous growth of robotics systems and increase in cybersecurity and safety risks and challenges. The conference aims to bring together all dedicated researchers active in this domain and is about identifying risks, threats and vulnerabilities, safety considerations and solutions for robot systems due to cyber security.

Over the last couple of years research in this topic has been increasing due to many developments happening in both cybersecurity and the robotics domain. The initiative of the conference came from the Cybersecurity workshop at the European Robotics Forum 2019, where some of the research results were” presented, a connection was made to the Strategic Research Agenda of Cybersecurity and of Robotics, where the connection to Safety and Security was made and where we showed the interest and benefit for the innovation developments and future potential industrial applications and dedicated technologies.

The conference will be the first in its kind, specifically focusing on the domain, to raise the level of awareness, to ensure the further multidisciplinary approaches and to further ensure the improvement of the cybersecurity for robotic systems, for agile production, digital production and industry 4.0 and smart products and technologies. Other aim is to strengthen the European Cybersecurity infrastructure, systems and applications and increasing the Cybersecurity posture of the European Digital Market and specifically factories of the future and connected factories.

 Conference

The conference will be organized in collaboration with the TRINITY project, by LSEC – Leaders In Security, together with the local cybersecurity SME Alias Robotics, the European Robotics Forum, the RODIN project, ECSO, EFFRA and the Basque Cybersecurity Centre. The conference is planned to be hosted alongside the Basque Industry 4.0 and Basque Cybersecurity Days on November 20 and 21st 2019 in Bilbao. Organizers have called for abstracts, titles and contributors topics and suggestions until October 31st. Papers and presentation proposals to be sent in until November 15th.
