Workshop on ontology and taxonomies for critical infrastructures

Existing standards in the field have so far only addressed resilience indirectly and thus without detailed definition of the taxonomy and thus of the semantics of security. The primary purpose of an ontology and taxonomies defined in this context is to use them as the basis of definitions and processes in the future work. A taxonomy is most often defined as a classification of terms and has close a relationship with the use of ontology.

Against the background of the ontology and taxonomies for resilience, the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and the Unit "Trust and Security"of Directorate General Information Society and Media (DG INFSO) of the European Commission have jointly organised a workshop with the objective to provide a forum for the exchange  of ideas on this subject. The workshop has covered a number of issues, such as:

  • Impact of resilience on standardisation activities for future networks;
  • The regulator viewpoint: Why resilience is critical?
  • The network operator viewpoint: Addressing resilience at network planning/dimensioning stage;
  • The manufacturer viewpoint: How resilient equipment strategies impact innovation;
  • Technological and research challenges: damaged networks recovery techniques; preservation of privacy in a network stress event.
