Short Bio

Dr Paul Smith is a Senior Scientist with the Center for Digital Safety and Security at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and a Visiting Researcher at Lancaster University, UK. He received his PhD in Computing from Lancaster University in September 2003. Paul’s research is targeted at developing applied solutions to ensuring the security and resilience of critical information infrastructures, including computer networks and digitalized energy systems. Solutions include approaches to risk management, anomaly detection, secure architecture specification, incident response, and resilience measurement. For each of these solutions, his interest lies in addressing the cyber-physical aspects of security and resilience. He has participated in several international research projects in this area and has published articles on various aspects that relate to his interests. Paul is a member of the ACM.
