Resilient Information and Control Systems (RICS)
Research Project, 2015 – 2020

RICS is a Swedish national research Centre on Resilient Information and Control Systems. The centre is financed by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) to promote long term research and competence in securing systems on which societal functions depend. In an initial phase of the centre the focus will be on the critical information infrastructures on which provision of electricity, water and heat systems depend. The research work will rest on the following three pillars: (1) Data analysis and emulation (2) Risk and vulnerability analysis using attack modelling (3) Real-time detection of adverse events and anomalies
