About the conference

Chris Johnson "Welcome to the IET System Safety and Cyber Security Conference 2017.

"This year’s conference provides a full programme of presentations that address the two most significant problems for the engineering of complex systems. It is becoming increasingly hard to sustain confidence in the safe operation of applications that are faced with a growing array of criminal and state sponsored cyber attacks. We will identify the threats and present a range of mitigations.

"A distinctive feature of the IET conference is that is combines good practice presentations from industry-leading practitioners together with the latest research suggesting new ways of addressing the challenges that arise at the intersection between safety and cyber security.

"It is a unique forum, which also includes the policy makers who are helping shape national priorities in protecting critical infrastructures and in safeguarding our digital economy. There are special sessions on the legal implications of cyber security and on the regulatory context.

"We also have a strong social programme; providing significant networking opportunities together with exhibitors and demonstrations of new products – all helping to ensure the safety and security of complex applications.

"I look forward to meeting you in London."

Chris Johnson, Chairman
IET System Safety and Cyber Security Conference 2017

SSCS is the largest conference for system safety specialists held in the UK; and the only conference where both safety and security engineers from around the world can meet and share ideas, new research and network.

Sessions at this year’s conference will focus on integrating safety and cyber security, implementing and adopting security approaches, system / software safety and will cover four over-arching themes:

  • Integrating safety and cyber security
  • Vulnerabilities, threats and solutions to cyber security in safety-critical systems
  • The human factors of cyber security and safety
  • Interactions between safety and cyber security systems

This is your chance to contribute to the programme and submit an abstract in one of the many technical areas across a host of disciplines.

What can I expect to see?

Sessions at SSCS 2016 included topics on integrating safety and cyber security, legal and moral issues, implementing and adopting security approaches, system safety, software safety and transport.

A panel discussion on the future of UK’s National Cyber Security Strategy included thought leaders from the government (NCSC/GCHQ), academia and leading technology companies such as Intel Security and QinetiQ.

What people said about SSCS 2016
