Efforts to Get People Involved in Cyber-Physical Security: Case Studies of Australia and Singapore

Part of the Protecting Critical Infrastructure book series (PCIN,volume 3)

Abstract

As critical infrastructures, such as transportation, water, electricity, and gas distribution networks, mature into cyber-physical (CP) systems, they have become more vulnerable to cyber attacks. These attacks have become more sophisticated in nature, and as such, CP security has had to adopt a multi-pronged approach in dealing with it. While technological advancements have been hailed as the main source of safeguard for CP systems, little is mentioned about other contributing factors to CP security, especially if one considers the proliferation of CP systems into more publicly accessible applications such as banking and assisted living. This chapter will examine the efforts to get society involved in CP security specifically in two areas—educational efforts and initiatives to cultivate safe online practices. As Australia and Singapore are developed nations in the usage of CP systems, this chapter will discuss the initiatives undertaken in these two countries.
