Power systems resilience: Definition and taxonomy with a view towards metrics

JJ Plotnek, J SlayInternational Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection Across the globe electric power grids are being upgraded to incorporate modern technologies that promise to overcome a multitude of challenges that the legacy infrastructure is currently facing. Each of these new technologies introduce new complexities and vulnerabilities that can be exploited by cyber adversaries lookingContinue reading “Power systems resilience: Definition and taxonomy with a view towards metrics”

Cyber terrorism: A homogenized taxonomy and definition

Jordan J Plotnek, Jill SlayComputers & Security Large-scale cyber attacks are increasing at an alarming rate around the world. These attacks are often being linked to the widely publicized and popularized threat of cyber terrorism. However, cyber terrorism is a relatively young field of research and the terminology, much like its parent term, ‘terrorism’, isContinue reading “Cyber terrorism: A homogenized taxonomy and definition”

What is Cyber Terrorism: Discussion of Definition and Taxonomy

JJ Plotnek, J Slay (La Trobe University) This paper reviews the use of the term ‘cyber terrorism’ and proposes a new universally-applicable taxonomy and definition. The proposed new definition is derived from detailed analyses of existing definitions in the publicly available literature, which includes all of the key commonalities identified in accordance with the newlyContinue reading “What is Cyber Terrorism: Discussion of Definition and Taxonomy”

Real-Time Analogue Electricity Meter Monitor Feasibility Study

JJ Plotnek, M Tutek, L Andrew (Swinburne University) This thesis details the processes undergone to develop and test a system that digitises the data produced by an analogue electricity meter. This was done in order to solve a problem raised by an industry contact that currently only has devices that work with digital meters inContinue reading “Real-Time Analogue Electricity Meter Monitor Feasibility Study”
