Possible Scientific-Technical Solutions to the Problem of Giving Early Warning

  • Sergei Petrenko


This chapter investigates the complex issue of an early-warning system for cyber-attacks on Russian state and corporate information resources. An approach to create the required warning systems based on “computing cognitivism” is proposed; it is a relatively new scientific research area with cognition and cognitive processes being a kind of symbolic computation. It is shown that the cognitive approach makes it possible to create systems that are fundamentally different from the traditional systems for cyber-attack detection, prevention, and recovery (SOPCA). SOPCA has a unique ability to independently associate and synthesize new knowledge on qualitative characteristics and quantitative patterns of information confrontation. A feasible architecture of a cognitive early-warning system for a cyber-attack against Russian information resources based on convergent nano-, bio-, info-, and cognitive technologies, NBIC technologies is proposed [1–5].
