How to reactively defend against advanced cyber threats

Date: 
20/05/2021

We would like to invite you to the online workshop "How to reactively defend against advanced cyber threats" on 20 May, 13:00 - 17:00 CEST.

The workshop is organised by the ReAct project and supported by Cyberwatching.eu which are both funded by the European Commission's H2020 programme.

Thank you for joining us!


Cybersecurity has played a critical role in the last year, especially because of the shift to an increased usage of digital products due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have seen an increase in the importance of cybersecurity within some organisations' strategy, most software systems currently used on a daily basis still contain vulnerabilities that can be easily exploited.

This is especially true in the case of zero-day attacks, which depend on the organization’s “window of exposure,” or the time between the discovery of a vulnerability and the release (and installation) of a patch that fixes it. Zero-day exploits are highly valued in legitimate bug bounty programmes, with one such exploit valued at US$2 million. They are also valuable in underground marketplaces, making them a boon for threat actors because most security defences are designed to handle known flaws.

Organisations the world over are asking:

  • can we protect a computer, or laptop, tablet or any other device before "day zero"?
  • can we protect them before we know about their vulnerability?

This workshop will answer these questions thanks to the work done in the context of the H2020 ReAct projectReAct is proposing an holistic approach aiming to protect devices throughout their entire lives by automatically generating temporary real-time patch that neutralizes the vulnerability until an official patch is installed. In this way, ReAct closes the window of vulnerability and does not allow attackers to compromise the vulnerable computer.

In its third edition, Concordia Open Door (COD) continued the series of annual meetups for the European heterogenous cybersecurity community.

Future Events

Quick and efficient management of ongoing incidents are paramount factors to consider when designing a SOC. To this end, the SOCCRATES platform provides with a flexible approach based on customizable workflows and the integration of specific security tools. This webinar will demostrate how the SOCCRATES platform manages incidents notified from the security monitoring systems deployed in an infrastructure, from incident analysis to containment and supported by the orchestrator of several different tools.

In order to ensure that the SOCCRATES platform is fit for purpose, the project will carry out three pilots to validate the platform in realistic environments. This webinar will show results and experiences from the second pilot, in which the complete SOCCRATES platform was validated in realistic (on-site) environments at Vattenfall, mnemonic and Shadowserver.
