Welcome to the Digital Immunity Ecosystem

The Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System (CEWPS™)

to Protect the Critical Infrastructures in the Smart City.

The New Cyber Security Paradigm!

Home The System The Book Partners Courses CEWPS Articles      

Course Overview:

Smart City is the ultimate harmony of human and natural resources, social capital, integrated transportation, and modern (ICT) infrastructure, to bring about sustainable economic development and a high quality of life. Nonetheless, Smart Cities are vulnerable to massive cyber-attacks, and therefore, a smart cyber security defense becomes necessary.

The seminar will cover the theory, the holistic methodology of system architecture, and most importantly, how it will be a used to protect the major critical infrastructures of the Smart City. The Smart Vaccine™ will be introduced as the autonomic agent that will inoculate the critical system before any attack on the Critical Infrastructures. The Digital Immune System is called the Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System™ (CEWPS™).

 Benefits of the workshop

  •     Understand how the Human Immune System can be replicated to protect the Critical Infrastructures of Smart Cities

  •     Change the mindset from reactive to pro-active way of dealing with cyber attacks

  •     Utilize and integrate Grid Computing, Autonomic Computing, Causality Reasons Engines and Prediction Models, Artificial Intelligence to develop the Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System

  •     Manage the Smart Cities through a more robust and secured technology

  •     Understand the Vaccination Concept, the types and how they transact like Web Services

  •     Build expert systems that carry knowledge and reasoning power. CEWPS™ is the cognitive security shield to protect   the Smart City.

  •    Brainstorm sessions with vivid examples will enable attendees interact and exchange new ideas Digital Immunity and create higher level of synergism collaboration spirit.
