International Workshop on Cybersecurity on Critical Infrastructures Management (CyberSANE 2022)


Updated 25th August 2022

On the 23rd August 2022, CyberSANE held the International Workshop on Cybersecurity on Critical Infrastructures Management (CyberSANE 2022). The objectives of this workshop were to present the CyberSANE project and its architecture to participants. Furthermore, we presented the three use cases as well as the results of their respective studies. We also talked about the various standardisation activities partaken during the project as well as various business models. It was held in conjunction with the 17th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2022), in Vienna, Austria.

See below for an overview of the agenda, as well as the list of speakers.

What is ARES 2022?

The International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES) brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of IT security & privacy.Since 2005, ARES serves as an important platform to exchange, discuss and transfer knowledge and is hosted every year in another European city.

The 2022 conference is the 17th edition of ARES and will be held from August 23 to August 26, 2022 in Vienna, Austria.The International IFIP Cross Domain Conference for Machine Learning & Knowledge Extraction (CD-MAKE) will be co-located with ARES 2022!

Luis Landeiro Ribeiro




Luis Ribeiro received his B. Tech from Instituto Superior Técnico –Lisbon in 2007, his M.S. in Information & Computer Science from the Instituto Superior Técnico – Lisbon in 2007 with a dissertation on agents for massive multiplayer online games, which later would become the core for the version 2.0 of the online game Almansur ( Started his career in 2002 as an undergraduate researcher for the INESC-ID SAT group, developing optimization techniques for speeding up SAT-Solvers on complex NP-Complete problems.

From 2004 to 2006 worked as algorithm specialist at SIEMENS R&D, during which time he created a routing simulator algorithm and a network element simulator for STP and MSTP protocols. Between 2006 and 2007 worked on his master thesis and finished the first commercial version of Almansur. He is a technical evangelist at PDMFC, making sure everyone is up to date on the usage of new technologies. In the past he lead the CSIRT team at Vodafone Portugal and worked as an expert advisor to the CSIRT of several Portuguese National Entities. Currently splits his time between security research projects, management of PDMFC group.
