This book targets the key concern of protecting critical infrastructures such as smart grids. It explains various static and dynamic security analysis techniques that can automatically verify smart grid security and resiliency and identify potential attacks in a proactive manner. This book includes three main sections. The first presents the idea of formally verifying the compliance of smart grid configurations with the security and resiliency guidelines. It provides a formal framework that verifies the compliance of the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) configurations with the security and resiliency requirements, and generates remediation plans for potential security violations. The second section covers the formal verification of the security and resiliency of smart grid control systems by using a formal model to analyze attack evasions on state estimation, a core control module of the supervisory control system in smart grids. The model identifies attack vectors that can compromise state estimation. This section also covers risk mitigation techniques that synthesize proactive security plans that make such attacks infeasible. The last part of the book discusses the dynamic security analysis for smart grids. It shows that AMI behavior can be modeled using event logs collected at smart collectors, which in turn can be verified using the specification invariants generated from the configurations of the AMI devices. Although the focus of this book is smart grid security and resiliency, the included formal analytics are generic enough to be extended to other cyber-physical systems, especially those related to industrial control systems (ICS). Therefore, industry professionals and academic researchers will find this book an exceptional resource to learn theoretical and practical aspects of applying formal methods for the protection of critical infrastructures.

Frauen reden, Männer machen?

Wie wir aus der Klischeefalle ausbrechen und besser zusammenarbeiten

Wenn es im Alltag zwischen den Geschlechtern knirscht, heißt es oft „typisch Frau“ oder „typisch Mann“. Aber was ist wirklich dran am Vorurteil darüber, dass Männer gern sagen, wo es langgeht, während Frauen sich schwertun, Entscheidungen zu treffen? Welche Unterschiede zwischen den Geschlechtern sind evolutionsbiologisch bedingt, welche gesellschaftlich geprägt? Und wie lassen sich diese Unterschiede im praktischen Alltag in der Zusammenarbeit überwinden und zum Vorteil nutzen? Kishor Sridhar zeigt in seinem neuen Buch fundiert und auf den Punkt gebracht, dass es verhaltenspsychologisch betrachtet „typisch Mann“ und „typisch Frau“ eigentlich gar nicht gibt, sondern vielmehr feminine und eher maskuline Verhaltensweisen – und zwar unabhängig vom biologischen Geschlecht: Männer können nämlich in bestimmten Lebensbereichen genauso weibliche Verhaltens- und Kommunikationsmuster aufweisen wie Frauen männliche. Kishor Sridhar deckt auf, wie sich diese Muster erkennen lassen und mit welchen klaren und praxiserprobten Methoden eine bessere Zusammenarbeit gelingt: von der Teamarbeit über Meetings bis hin zu Mitarbeitergesprächen und Vertriebsarbeit. Spannende Impulse, die jeder sofort im Alltag einsetzen kann und sollte. Denn unsere Arbeits- und Lebenswelt ist in einem tiefgreifenden Wandel begriffen: in unserer vernetzten Welt erleben wir den Übergang in ein feminines Zeitalter. Althergebrachtes Schwarz-Weiß-Denken bringt uns da nicht weiter, sondern es ist höchste Zeit, überholte Denk- und Verhaltensmuster aufzubrechen und Klischees zu begraben.
