(Remote) Session on Digital Resilience & Complexity @ IDSF 20

December 02, 2020
12:30 pm - 1:50 pm

SBA Research is part of this year’s (virtual) International Digital Security Forum Vienna (IDSF 20) and will host a session on “Digital Resilience & Complexity”.

Under the motto “Security in times of pandemics and major global events”, the IDSF 2020 is organized as a virtual conference from 02 – 03 December 2020 by the AIT Austrian Institute for Technology and the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (Wirtschaftskammer Österreich – WKO).


Session: Digital Resilience & Complexity

Complex and distributed software systems form the nervous system of our modern society. As a consequence there is no resilient society without resilient software systems. Making software systems resilient is a demanding task as they are dependent on a wide range of techno-social systems and basic infrastructure (such as electricity, water, supply chains). They require skilled experts with a clear understanding what the capabilities of the respective system are supposed to be, how cascade failures can be averted and graceful degradation schemes could look like. This sounds easier than it is, but complex software systems show emergent behaviour which results from a broad range of modules within an organisation (and different responsibilities) and an increasing number of external services.

IDSF dedicates a session panel to this most relevant topic to discuss how to handle complexity and emergent properties of distributed software systems and the consequences for security and resilience of these systems.

Host: Alexander Schatten, SBA Research
Moderator: Martin Szelgrad, Report Verlag
