Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are a logical step towards integrating classical IT systems further into physical or virtual surroundings. In consequence this means that CPS will be targets for new security threats, e.g. by manipulating the system both at the IT system level and within its surroundings. In this paper, we first discuss these new types of security threats before suggesting a novel system architecture that extends ideas from the domain of Organic Computing. Finally, we present a research agenda towards building future secure CPS.
