CPS4CIP 2020 is the First Workshop on Cyber-Physical Security for Critical Infrastructures Protection. It will take place online along with the 25th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2020)  on Friday, 18 September 2020.

The £25 registration fee allows attendance at all ESORICS 2020 conference and associated workshops events!

The program features 14 presentations and 2 keynotes. The full schedule is available at the workshop site:


The workshop is supported by the projects of the European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures (ECSCI)



CPS4CIP’20 is the first workshop dedicated to the cyber-physical security for protecting critical infrastructures that support finance, energy, health, air transport, communication, gas, and water. The secure operation of these critical infrastructures is essential to the security of a nation, its economy, and the public’s health and safety. Security incidents in the critical infrastructures can directly lead to a violation of users’ safety and privacy, physical damages, significant economic impacts on individuals and companies, and threats to human life while decreasing trust in institutions and questioning their social value. Because of the increasing interconnection between the digital and physical worlds, these infrastructures and services are more critical, sophisticated and interconnected than ever before. This makes them increasingly vulnerable to attacks, as confirmed by the steady rise of cyber-security incidents, such as phishing or ransomware, but also cyber-physical incidents, such as physical violation of devices or facilities in conjunction with malicious cyber activities.

To address all these challenges, the CPS4CIP workshop has the objective of bringing together security researchers and practitioners from the various verticals of critical infrastructures (such as the financial, energy, health, air transport, communication, gas and water domains) to rethink cyber-physical security in the light of latest technology developments; e.g., Cloud Computing, Blockchain, Big Data, AI, Internet-of-Things (IoT).
