COLLABORATIONS

We work with a range of parallel projects in common areasof research to maximise our impact and network reach.


Summary
The StandICT.eu general objective is to create a European Standardisation Ecosystem The EU-funded StandICT.eu 2023 project, carried out through 10 Open Calls to financially support European specialists in the context of international Standards Developing Organisations Working Groups, will aim at creating a standardisation ecosystem where the EU’s priorities and expertise are taken into account to enhance Europe’s overall competitiveness. The project will set-up an ICT Standardisation Observatory to achieve an exhaustive mapping of the global standards arena, by reinforcing EU presence in the international scene through maximising synergies with ongoing programmes. The project will also contribute to shaping ‘the next generation of European Standards experts’ through education initiatives and trainings.


Summary
The ARCADIAN-IoT project addresses this challenge and aims to develop and make available an innovative, advanced, solid framework for trust, security and privacy management for IoT systems. The ARCADIAN-IoT framework will accelerate the development of IoT systems towards decentralized, transparent and user controllable privacy in three real use cases. ARCADIAN-IoT, the acronym for Autonomous trust, security and privacy management framework for IoT, is an EC-funded project which aims to develop innovative and advanced security and privacy management mechanisms and technologies that can seamlessly be integrated in a variety of contexts and applications.


Summary
The ERATOSTHENES project builds on recent challenges of Internet of Things (IoT) networks, including: lack of security visibility, lack of effective information sharing between organisations and availability of tools for CERTs/CSIRTs, heterogeneity of IoT devices, lack of a common trust enforcement mechanism and relevant standards, lack of a transparent identity and privacy frameworks and lacking security training and security protocols’ adoption for persons and devices. ERATOSTHENES will devise a novel distributed, automated, auditable, yet privacy-respectful, Trust and Identity Management Framework intended to dynamically and holistically manage the lifecycle of IoT devices, strengthening trust, identities, and resilience in the entire IoT ecosystem, supporting the enforcement of the NIS directive, GDPR and the Cybersecurity Act.


Summary
IDUNN project is focusing on adding the trust ingredient to any business by making its ICT systems resilience to cyber-attacks. It will create a security shield in the form of tools, methodologies, microservices and initial standards compatible with any ICT supply chain. The project will demonstrate a secure Continuity Plan for ICT based organisations by creating and validating a unique Cognitive Detection System for Cybersecure Operational Technologies. The project seeks to increase trust in both IT and OT environments by increasing response and lowering the recovery time to cyberattacks. It will help to decrease the person effort ensuring the application of cybersecurity and having a crucial impact in productivity of user companies. IDUNN will create a validated technological security framework in the form of tools and microservices to enable automatic and dynamic cybersecurity operations.


Summary
IRIS’s vision is to integrate and demonstrate a single platform addressed to CERTs/CSIRTs for assessing, detecting, responding to and sharing information regarding threats & vulnerabilities of IoT and AI-driven ICT systems. To achieve this, IRIS brings together experts in cybersecurity, IoT, AI, automated threat detection, response, and recovery. The project aims to help European CERTs/CSIRTs minimise the impact of cybersecurity and privacy risks as well as threats introduced by cyber-physical vulnerabilities in IoT platforms and adversarial attacks on AI-provisions and their learning/decision-making algorithms.

The IRIS platform will be demonstrated and validated in 3 highly realistic environments with the engagement of 3 smart cities (in Helsinki, Tallinn and Barcelona) along with the involvement of national CERTs/CSIRTs, and cybersecurity authorities.


Summary
The SECANT platform will enhance the capabilities of organisations’ stakeholders, implementing (a) collaborative threat intelligence collection, analysis and sharing; (b) innovative risk analysis specifically designed for interconnected nodes of an industrial ecosystem; (c) cutting-edge trust and accountability mechanisms for data protection and (d) security awareness training for more informed security choices. The proposed solution’s effectiveness and versatility will be validated in four realistic pilot use case scenarios applied in the healthcare ecosystem. Ultimately, SECANT will contribute decisively towards improving the readiness and resilience of the organisations against the crippling modern cyber-threats, increasing the privacy, data protection and accountability across the entire interconnected ICT ecosystem, and reducing the costs for security training in the European market.
