Cybersecurity of critical infrastructure


Vigano, Eleonora; Loi, Michele; Yaghmaei, Emad (2020). Cybersecurity of critical infrastructure. In: Christen, Markus; Gordjin, Bert; Loi, Michele. The Ethics of Cybersecurity. Cham: Springer, 157-177.

Abstract

This chapter provides a political and philosophical analysis of the values at stake in ensuring cybersecurity for critical infrastructures. It presents a review of the boundaries of cybersecurity in national security, with a focus on the ethics of surveillance for protecting critical infrastructures and the use of AI. A bibliographic analysis of the literature is applied until 2016 to identify and discuss the cybersecu- rity value conflicts and ethical issues in national security. This is integrated with an analysis of the most recent literature on cyber-threats to national infrastructure and the role of AI. This chapter demonstrates that the increased connectedness of digital and non-digital infrastructure enhances the trade-offs between values identified in the literature of the past years, and supports this thesis with the analysis of four case studies.
