2015 Cybersecurity & Cyber Physical Systems Workshop Schedule


Highly visible network security breaches have raised the general awareness of cybersecurity as a critical need for many industries.  With the growth of cyber-physical systems such as the Smart Grid and the Internet of Things, demand for engineers with a solid educational foundation in this area will grow as well.

This full-day workshop will gather academic, government, and industry experts to review the educational needs for cybersecurity and cyber-physical systems, and how they are currently addressed by engineering educators.
