Assessing the impact of Cyber-Physical Attacks on Critical Infrastructures: A Semantic-Based Approach
Keywords: Semantic Representation, Critical Infrastructures, Cyber-Physical Attacks, Impact Propagation
Abstract: This paper proposes an integrated approach to study impact propagation of cyber and physical incidents within critical healthcare infrastructures. This approach is based on a semantic modeling and reasoning engine which takes into account assets and input/output incident types while running propagation through a network graph. Besides, it calculates impact scores based on assets availability and protection degree upon incident reception.
