Abstract: The Future of Systems Engineering (FuSE) is an INCOSE led multi-organization collaborative initiative that has identified several specific topics to be investigated. Rick leads the FuSE topic on security. The current focus in the security topic within the FuSE initiative is on foundation development – general considerations that should shape the breadth and depth of necessary future solution strategies. Two IS20 papers offer two initial foundations. One addresses strategy for security system engineering as a process, the other addresses strategy for engineered system security as an operational product. This presentation reviews the content of these two papers: “Contextually Aware Agile Security” and “Techno-Social Contracts for Security Orchestration.” Agile security is a solution designed for continual dynamic adaptation, needed to contend with relentlessly innovative agile adversaries. A social contract, in historical context, is the cultural and/or lawful agreement that binds a community of people around mutual protection. A techno-social contract is equivalent; but exists principally among a community of technical elements in a system or system-of-systems.

Bio: Rick Dove is CEO of Paradigm Shift International, specializing in agile systems and security research, engineering, and project management; and an adjunct professor at Stevens Institute of Technology teaching graduate courses in agile and self-organizing systems. He chairs the INCOSE working groups for Agile Systems and Systems Engineering, and for Systems Security Engineering. He is an INCOSE Fellow, and author of Response Ability, the Language, Structure, and Culture of the Agile Enterprise.

Connect to your community of practice. Mix with people who have the same professional interests as you do, but with a diversity of perspective beyond daily workmates. It comes in handy when you need help or answers to questions outside your accumulated experience, need a connection at another organization, or simply want some mind stretching thought.

Meeting announcements, event notices, and GlobalMeet links routinely go to all INCOSE members within the Chapter’s geographic territory; as well as to names on an information list open to one and all. Sign up for the Chapter Info List by emailing the Chapter Secretary.
