On the 14th and 15th of September 2021, the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (KIOS CoE) at the University of Cyprus in collaboration with Imperial College London organized a 2-day training course on Cyber-Security. The course was held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic and attracted postgraduate students, researchers and engineers who wanted to expand their knowledge in Cyber-Security related areas.
The course was delivered by two world-recognized experts in their fields, Prof. Bruno Sinopoli from Washington University in St. Louis (USA), and Prof. Mihalis Maniatakos from New York University (NYU) in Abu Dhabi (UAE). The first lecturer gave a lecture on the “Design of Resilient Cyber-Physical Systems” and the second on the “Security Evaluation of Modern Industrial Control Systems”.
The KIOS CoE places emphasis on education and training activities as they are essential for the development of the scientific excellence of the Center. The Center will continue organizing similar training courses for researchers in order to empower their professional development.
