Abstract

In this chapter, challenges and approaches for effective Data Visualisation aimed at enhancing Situational Awareness in Sensitive Industrial Sites and Plants (SIPS) Critical Infrastructure are discussed. In the H2020 InfraStress project a set of specific visualisation tools and dashboards have been developed for SIPS, including for real-time events monitoring and augmented reality. These tools have been integrated in a unified environment and with a set of other Cyber-Physical security solutions, aimed at collecting and presenting visually relevant data to users. The dashboards have been tested within the Piloting activities of the InfraStress project. In particular, in the pilot carried out at the De Puy Synthes site in Ireland (DPS), cyber-physical visualization was an important asset to enable operators to gain knowledge on the detected threats as well as to receive advanced mitigation and reaction strategies and therefore improve the site resilience. In the first part the general dashboard architecture and core visualisation items (and related paradigms) are discussed as well as specifics about the DPS pilot deployment and its interactions with other InfraStress components. The Second part elaborates on deployment experience that is critical in successful operation and critical site infrastructure supervision from the Cyber Physical Systems threats perspective. Finally, main user feedback and conclusions from the InfraStress pilot activities will be presented in particular about enhanced site resilience.
