Key sectors of modern economies depend highly on ICT. The information flowing through the resulting technological super-infrastructure as well as the information being processed by the complex computing systems that underpin it becomes crucial because its disruption, disturbance or loss can lead to high economical, material and, sometimes, human loss. As a consequence, the security and dependability of this infrastructure becomes critical and its protection a major objective for governments, companies and the research community.
This year CRITIS will be held in Athens, the capital of Greece. In its fifth edition, CRITIS wants to bring together researchers and professionals from universities, private companies and Public Administrations interested or involved in all security-related heterogeneous aspects of Critical Information Infrastructures.
