Conclusions

  • Important distinction between vulnerabilities as a result of sharing data (personal, commercial, safety) vs. the need to share information or cybersecurity (best practice + crisis management). A robust, technology-independent security architecture is the most important step.
  • ATM need to maintain operational mitigations (graceful degradation, etc.) challenging in the time of increasing automation.
  • For data exchange (e.g. in ATM: SWIM) we need to be clear on:
    WHY,
    WHAT,
    HOW
    to ensure we gain the benefits. Specific techniques / technology can build on that.
