SESSION 3 - Cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, data mining, big data analysis, and DSS applied to CBRNe

This session will host presentations based on the following description.


Cybersecurity is becoming crucial, as more information and advanced technology are being made available in cyberspace. As recent events have demonstrated, cyberspace must be considered the new theatre of warfare and has the potential to undermine the stability of a country. New terms, such as cyberwarfare and cyberterrorism, were coined to better describe this threat and there is growing concern among governments, that they are not ready to fully face such an emerging menace. More critical infrastructures today are remotely controlled via software systems that, while increasing efficiency, determine new vulnerabilities. Otherwise, innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Big Data Analysis allow for improving risk mitigation in systems’ cybersecurity. In this scenario, CBRNe Intelligence plays an extremely important role in preventing the malicious use of, an otherwise beneficial, asset. A Decision Support System (DSS) can be seen as both a tool to help the decision-making process in the aftermath of a CBRNe event, as well as a tool to optimize the planning and management of operations. Today, DSSs are essential instruments in coping with problems that may not have been identified in advance and are changing rapidly, or when dealing with large amounts of data. DSSs are interactive software-based systems intended to help decision-makers to gather useful information from a combination of raw data, documents, and personal knowledge. Therefore, DSSs greatly assist in the identification and solving of problems, hence the decision-making process. In this regard, DSSs can be extremely helpful when applied to CBRNe Prediction, Planning, and Emergency Management. 

This session will host the work of the experts that will reflect those concepts.
