The cyber security of critical infrastructures (CI) has become a focal concern for a number of national and international actors, each with their own, specific interests [1, 2]. As CIs present a logical target for cyber warfare and cyber terrorism, cyber security is climbing the agenda across governments and organisations. Due to their very criticality, CIs are of keen interest to CI operators and military and intelligence organisations, as well as to terror groups seeking to cause harm through sabotage. The cyber security of CIs depends on the overall security of numerous interconnected sub-structures - achieving this demands profound expertise in all aspects of cyber security.
