Information Security is a domain of IT that has a well developed body of knowledge, and a cadre of practitioners with significant experience in securing IT systems. Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) also has a well developed body of knowledge and a well trained cadre of professionals that have been successfully running systems for years. These are two separate groups that would benefit from working together rather than in a hierarchical management structure. Securing CPS is a new challenge as systems become interconnected. New technologies will be needed, but much can be gained from existing knowledge, if it is properly shared between these two groups
