Improving Cyber Resilience of Mission-Critical Systems

Securing information systems against cyber threats is a critical objective for the United States. This talk will introduce the technique of using network digital twins and describe how this technology can be used to increase the cyber resilience of systems, including those used for 5G, information technology, critical infrastructure, and weapons systems. The 2015 cyberattack in Ukraine is a well-known case study of how multiple networks were penetrated and attacked in a coordinated manner to bring down the power grid and cripple recovery efforts. In addition to this case study, we will discuss the use of network digital twins to assess commercial IT and 5G systems.
