With the growth of the IoT there is increased interest in the overlapping areas of safety and security. There is already a lot of knowledge on these issues and this has been shared by the IET’s International System Safety and Cyber Security Conference. The eleventh version of this conference is running from 11—13 October 2016 in London. The organisers state that it is the largest conference for system safety specialists held in the UK; and the only conference where both safety and security engineers from around the world can meet and share ideas, new research and network.
An impressive roster of keynote speakers, some thought-provoking tutorials and two streams of presentations (on occasions it might be necessary to be in two places at once!) – it all adds up to three very interesting days for anyone interested in the big picture of safety and security.
