Preventing Cyber Attacks Via STPA/STAM

Are we failing in preventing cyber attacks? Nissan, T-Mobile, PayPal, FAA were hacked or experienced outages in the fist weeks of 2023. Could STPA/STAMP modeling help in preventing cyber attacks? Prof. Nancy Leveson  and Dr. John Thomas will lead a discussion among cyber professionals and address questions such as: 

- What is cyber STPA/STAMP. What industries and organizations have successfully adopted it.

- How organizations prove that STPA/STAMP delivers better outcomes than traditional methods

- What are the first steps for adopting cyber STPA/STAMP
- What are the shared resources developed by the STPA/STAMP community
- How your organization can join the STPA/STAMP community 

STPA/STAMP, developed by Prof. Nancy Leveson and Dr. John Thomas, is already used to improve safety in space, aviation, medical, defense, nuclear, automotive and other sectors. In the recent years,  STPA/STAMP modeling is gaining wider adoption by technology companies, such as Google, and is proving successful in preventing cyberattacks, such as Solar Winds.
