About the event

 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 below across a host of disciplines.

What can I expect to see?

You’ll hear from leading practitioners in both the functional safety and cyber security industries, showing you the best new ideas in integrating safety and security to form robust, protected critical systems.

Last year’s conference included talks on integrating safety and cyber security, evolution of threats to the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure, cyber security for industrial control systems and defence, implementing and adopting security approaches, system safety, software safety and transport.

A panel discussion on developing security strategies for safety critical systems included thought leaders from the defence sector, academia and leading technology companies.


What people said about SSCS 2017

"This was a refreshing event in the floods of Industrial Cyber or Cyber-Physical events as it was aimed at crossing Cyber Security and Safety divide together with defence, automotive and government involvement."

Cevn Vibert, Industrial Cyber Security Evangelist

Other delegates also said:

“The conference had a good atmosphere and there was lots of opportunity to network.”

“Every day I learned something that is important to what I do in my job.”

“I would definitely recommend it as it gives you a good understanding towards where the other industries place themselves on the cyber security matter and what lessons could be learned and useful for your industry”.

“The presentations were all very good and explored a wide range of ideas and thinking.”
