The four pilot projects involved in the development of the European Cybersecurity Competence Network will present their plans and upcoming tools and services for SMEs in the Cyberwatching.eu webinar on the 2nd of April, 10:00 AM CEST
An overarching goal of cyberwatching.eu is accelerating development and deployment of cybersecurity & privacy research results, thereby increasing Europe’s ability to design and deliver innovative solutions. Research and Innovation (R&I) projects have spearheaded across the EU & Associated Countries (ACs) on the development of novel architectures and technologies, which can protect our European Digital Society against cybersecurity & privacy threats, although they may not gain the necessary visibility to generate impact.
cyberwatching.eu is performing a comprehensive observation of national and pan-European R&I initiatives, standards, policy & regulation, and market needs. cyberwatching.eu will provide a platform for fostering project collaboration, through a two-stage clustering of projects, thereby allowing cross pollination of both non-technical policy, experience and best practice findings as well as deeper technical specifics bringing expertise from across the top-level cluster together to concentrate on specific issues in smaller and more tightly focused groups.
As a first meta-clustering to bring together those projects, three specific high-level cluster definitions have been created:
1. Foundational technical methods & risk management for trustworthy systems in cybersecurity & privacy: The development of technologies that are directly associated with cybersecurity capabilities or features and methods by which the confidence in the technical capabilities of a system may be validated.
2. Applications and user-oriented services to support cybersecurity and privacy:
Specific capabilities or services which directly interact with system users and are developed with capabilities that are directly about how to improve the inherent capabilities and user experiences of cybersecurity and privacy in consumed services.
3. Policy, governance, ethics, trust, and usability, human aspects of cybersecurity & privacy: Aspects of cyber security that are overwhelmingly driven by the human interaction, understanding and dependency on how secure systems are or have been designed to be.
Already 150 CS&P projects have been analysed according to these definitions with a full catalogue and up to date service offers provided for 48 ongoing projects which will be presented at this month's Concertation meeting.
These clusters of projects will form the basis for identifying:
Secure systems and technology
Verification and assurance
Operational risk, management and analytics
Identity, behaviour, ethics and Privacy
National and international security, privacy and governance
Human aspects of cybersecurity
