After three years of hard work, the results of the ECOSSIAN project were presented in the final European Demonstration, which took place on 26th April 2017. A prototype system has been developed, which facilitates preventive functions like threat monitoring, early indicator and real threat detection, alerting, support of threat mitigation and disaster management. The ECOSSIAN technical architecture includes three levels of operations centres (at Critical Infrastructure operational national and European levels), along with interfaces to legacy systems (e.g. SCADA – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). The system has been validated in Critical Infrastructure scenarios of the sectors Finance, Transportation and Energy. The operational demonstration dedicated to the use-case protection of European Critical Infrastructures against cyber-attacks, was hosted in the Airbus Group premises in Elancourt near Paris/France. Approximately 80 participants attended the successful event, which was accompanied with interesting questions and discussions during an informal cocktail reception and technology exhibition after the demonstration.

WISER (Wide-Impact Cyber Security Risk Framework) is a European H2020 Innovation Action that puts cyber-risk management at the very heart of good business practice thanks to a novel model-based cyber-risk management framework able to assess and mitigate cyber risks in real time, which also incorporates socio-economic impacts of cyber risks. The WISER Framework is provided in terms of risk platform as a service (RPaaS) consisting of three modes of operation that collectively represent the WISER portfolio:

  • CyberWISER Light , already available for free on WISER website, targets SMEs and provides a user-friendly tool to increase awareness through self-assessment.
  • CyberWISER Essential (coming out in early 2017) targets SMEs and ICT systems in general, and provides a pre-packaged solution for real-time risk assessment.
  • CyberWISER Plus (coming out in early 2017) targets highly complex cyber systems such as critical infrastructures, and provides on-demand services for real-time and cross-system assessment of cyber risks.

On top of this, WISER is facilitating the uptake of a cyber-security culture through a series of additional free services such as:

  • CyberWISER SEIT, an online tool that calculates the estimation of economic and non-economic impacts of cyber attacks on an organisation. Impacts can be direct or indirect. Target audiences: SMEs and small IT teams in public administration.
  • Cartography of European Cyber Security Strategies: an interactive map that analyses national cyber security strategies in terms of capacity building, legal frameworks, public private partnerships and best practices for risk management with downloadable reports.

From 21st—22nd September 2016 , the ECOSSIAN consortium met for a technical face-2-face meeting in Rome, Italy. The meeting was hosted by partner Poste Italiane. Besides discussions regarding the technical work for the upcoming months, the meeting was mainly dedicated to the preparation of the Italian National demonstration, which will take place on 8th November in Rome. On the first day of the meeting, a technical workshop for the Italian demonstration was organized by the demo lead Cassidian Cybersecurity SAS. On the second day the concept of the Italian demonstration was presented to the entire ECOSSIAN consortium and feedback was provided. Additionally, rehearsal and training sessions on the ECOSSIAN components involved in the national demonstrations took place. Another focus was put on the planning of dissemination activities for the last project period. Discussions on the 3rd ECOSSIAN workshop were held and possible events were evaluated. Last but not least the compliance of several requirements with the ECOSSIAN system was discussed.b2ap3_thumbnail_20160921_145730.jpg
