10 January 2022 - Published by P. Khodabakhsh
COM³ partners at CIAM – Cluster on Industrial Asset Management – organize on 13 January 2022 a Lunch & Learn Webinar with Professor Sokratis Katsikas on Cyber Security in Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0, commonly referred to as the 4th industrial revolution, pertains to the current trend of automation and data exchange in industry, through the development, use and integration of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other enabling technologies. This evolution is expected to bring tremendous benefits in the economy, including improved productivity and efficiency, better flexibility and agility, and increased profitability.

However, it also comes with increased cyber security risks, primarily deriving from the integration of information technology and operational technology. Thus, as in all cases of a major shift in computing paradigms, a number of cyber security challenges arise, that cannot be addressed by simply porting solutions from other domains.

In this talk, Professor Sokratis K. Katsikas, Director of the Norwegian Center for Cybersecurity in Critical Sectors and Professor with the Dept. of Information Security and Communication Technology of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), will give an overview of such challenges, current practices for addressing them, as well as areas open for research in the field. 

The seminar is digital and takes place on Thursday, 13 January, from 11:30 - 12:00.

There will be a short introduction and an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.

The webinar takes about half an hour, so participants may use i.e. their lunch break for professional replenishment.

To access the webinar, you must register in advance of the event by sending an e-mail to
