About SCy-Phy Systems Week 2015

The SCy-Phy Systems Week 2015 consists of four main events

  1. Think-In event on June 22
  2. Hands-On event on June 23
  3. Cyber Defence Workshop on June 23
  4. Reverse Engineering Malware Workshop on June 24-25

Think-In: The Think-in is a two-day event focusing on the theme “Design of safe and secure Cyber Physical Systems (CPS).”  The first day will include a sequence of four brainstorming sessions. Each session will be devoted to a specific sub-topic under the general theme led by a panel of experts. These experts will present key issues within the sub-theme and the state of the art techniques and tools to address these issues. Presentation by the panelists will be followed by a discussion involving key discussants as well as all event attendees focusing on the strengths and limitations of the existing tools and techniques. This discussion is expected to lead to proposals for further research and potential international collaborations. The entire discussion during the first day will be summarised and compiled into a report.

Hands-On: Second day of the Think-in event will be devoted to cyber security related experiments. These experiments will be designed by the participants and conducted on the Secure Water Treatment (SWaT) testbed available at SUTD.  Participants will be able to form small groups, design experiments with well-defined objectives, and conduct these on the testbed. A laboratory engineer and supporting staff will be available to assist in the design and conduct of the experiments.

Cyber Defence Workshop:The workshop will focus on cyber crime, espionage, warfare, and defence. The workshop format is a mix of lectures and hand-on exercises using advanced tools to fight cyber crime. Dr David Aucsmith and Professor Yuval Elovici will jointly conduct this workshop. David and Yuval are internationally renowned experts in cyber security.

Reverse Engineering Malware Workshop: This workshop presents some key tools and techniques used by malware analysts to examine malicious code. Students will learn two key techniques – Behavioural Analysis and Code Analysis.

Support: Think-in and Hands-On events are organised by iTrust, with support from the Ministry of Defence, Singapore.
