Cyber Vulnerability Investigations: How The UK Ministry of Defence Protects Critical Infrastructure

The UK Ministry of Defence has taken major steps to conduct risk-based assessments for all its major land, sea and air systems through a methodology called ‘Cyber Vulnerability Investigations’ (CVIs).

Despite having undergone significant risk reduction exercises to minimize risks – there is still the lingering question “in the event of war will a cyber-attack prevent my vehicle/ship/aircraft from performing its mission”. It doesn’t matter if the risk is low – when an enemy is targeting your
systems you would like to be confident that they can’t cause any unacceptable impacts. This is where CVIs come in.

There is a danger that relying solely on a component-driven approach will give a business owner a false sense of their risk posture and cause unacceptable consequences when they are compromised.

This talk will outline some of the key findings from a number of CVIs for the UK MOD and other Critical Infrastructure operators.
