Increasingly, automatic restoration is an indispensable security measure in control systems (specially in those used in critical infrastructure sectors) due to the importance of ensuring the functionality of monitoring infrastructures. Modernizing the interconnection of control systems to provide interoperability between different networks, at a low cost, is also a critical requirement in control systems. However, automated recovery mechanisms are currently costly, and ensuring interoperability particularly at a low cost remains a topic of scientific challenge. Given this, our last works are based on the provision of restoration solutions for interconnected contexts, taking into account the theory of supernode and structural controllability, as well as the recommendations given by the IEC-62351-8 standard (which are mainly based on the implementation of a role-based access control system).
Cristina Alcaraz is an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Malaga and was awarded her PhD in Computer Science by the same university in 2011. She was a guest researcher at NIST, US (2011-2012), and visiting postdoc at Royal Holloway (2012-2014) under a Marie-Curie fellowship. She has been and is involved in European and national research projects, focusing on topics related to critical infrastructure protection and on the security of SCADA systems, cyber-physical systems, Industry 4.0 and Smart Grids. She serves on the editorial boards of six international journals in the area, and has participated in multiple international conference program committees.
