Each year we host an industry workshop at MIT to help people learn more about STAMP-based techniques like STPA and CAST, to meet with industry practitioners using these methods, and to hear about applications, evaluations, and the latest developments in these powerful new approaches to system safety and cyber security. The first day provides introductory tutorials intended to help attendees understand STAMP, STPA, CAST, and related techniques. The following three days involve presentations, panels, poster sessions, and similar activities.
The entire workshop is free and open to the public–you just have to get here.
In 2018 we had over 300 people from 32 countries. Presenters come from industry, government, and academia. Application areas have included aviation, air traffic control, medical devices, healthcare, oil and gas, automotive, railways, chemicals, space, human factors, robots, security, defense, workplace safety, and others.
Topics for Presentations (not limited to these):
- Experiences using STPA, STPA-Sec, and CAST
- Introducing STAMP, STPA, and CAST into large organizations
- Safety-guided and Security-guided design using STPA
- Using STPA to make decisions
- Accident/loss analyses
- Certification and regulatory applications
- Evaluations and comparisons with traditional techniques
- Risk management and identifying leading indicators
- Applications to security and other areas such as workplace safety
- Safety Management System development and evaluation
- Tools to support STPA and CAST
- Management and adoption experiences or challenges
- Applications to other emergent properties (beyond safety and security)
