Over the last decade, the EU has faced numerous threats that quickly increased in their magnitude. The sources of these threats have been heterogeneous. Moreover, the lines between physical and cyber worlds are increasingly blurred as nearly everything is connected to the internet. If it is not the case, physical intrusion might rub out of barriers. Threats cannot be analysed solely as physical or cyber, and therefore, it is critical to develop an integrated approach in order to fight against such combination of threats. Health services are among the most critical infrastructures and the most vulnerable ones.
Bringing together the most advanced technologies from the physical and cyber security spheres, SAFECARE aims to deliver high-quality, innovative and cost-effective solutions in system security. These solutions focus on mitigating cyber-physical threats and incidents and their interconnections an potential cascading effects.
Focusing on health services infrastructure, SAFECARE will work towards creating a global protection system, which will cover threat prevention, detection, response and mitigation of impacts across infrastructures, populations and environments.
1: Sharing best practices between security and health actors, industrialists and university scientists.
2: Analysis and learning: by focusing on health services infrastructure, Safecare works towards creating a protection system, which covers threat prevention, response and mitigation of impacts across infrastructures.
3: Decision Support: Since threats cannot be analysed solely as physical or cyber, we need to develop an integrated approach to fight such combination of threats. Safecare will deliver high quality & innovative solutions in system security to support healthcare stakeholders take decisions.
4: To collect information on the heterogeneous sources of new threats. Our consortium will design, test, validate and demonstrate 13 innovative elements, optimizing the protection of CI under operational conditions.
5: By raising awareness we aim to create a protection system which covers threat detection and mitigation of impacts across infrastructures and populations.
6: Disseminate the results and best practices throughout the health user communities to enhance awareness on how to handle multi-faced threats.

The SOCCRATES project is conducting an elaborate series of webinars to share its vision and insights with interested audiences. The first 5 webinars were centered around the SOCCRATES platform components and took place between October 2020 and June 2021. The second series will run until June of 2022 and address results achieved at the (Mnemonic, Vattenfall and Shadowserver) pilot sites.
The European Commission puts a great emphasis on the twin transition to a green and digital economy as the way forward for Europe.
In many sectors, SMEs can use enabling technologies to redesign their operations and become green(er). Standards are fundamental for sustainable technology as they provide reliable, consistent building blocks that can be universally understood and adopted. These building blocks aid in promoting compatibility and interoperability and speed up time-to-market.
