Operators of Essential Services (OES) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs)

The aim of the workshop is to present, analyse and discuss two bidirectional interdependency scenarios with potentially adverse effects:

(i) A scenario between the power sector and the telecommunications sector and

(ii) A scenario between financial institutions and DSPs.

The digitalization of modern OES has augmented their capabilities and provided utility and efficiency. Still, the adjoined reliance on external services creates inter-sector dependencies that introduce novel threat vectors with potentially serious impact on the provision of essential services.

This one-day event will focus on tangible interdependency scenarios with potentially adverse effects. Two bidirectional interdependency scenarios will be presented and discussed in the two break – out sessions of the workshop:

1. A clock synchronization attack on the telecommunications infrastructure of the power sector and
2.An attack on financial subsystems provided as cloud services to clients and retail providers.
