Planned Results

The ECOSSIAN project aims to:

  • Establish and enhance a security-state awareness to support operators of CI by implementing an Operator Security Operation Centre (O-SOC);
  • Combine O-SOCs of Member States’ identified and designated CI in a National Security Operation Centre (N-SOC);
  • Improve the effectiveness of decision-making and incident response capabilities in Member States through real-time situational awareness, information sharing and command & control opportunities;
  • Support a pan-European early-warning entity through the connection of Member States N-SOC to a European Security Operation Centre (E-SOC), including the required interoperability standards;
  • Enable consistent and collaborative cross-border and cross-sectorial incident management for CI by utilizing E-SOC capabilities;
  • Build trusted relationships and engage the CI operators at the EU level;
  • Ensure trustworthiness, anonymity, privacy and legality of action for all stakeholders and end users as necessary;
  • Perform a full-scale demonstration of the implemented ECOSSIAN framework and system; and
  • Build an entry point for EU-US collaborative information sharing efforts in cyber defense to create readiness to react on a global basis.
