CS-AWARE - A cybersecurity situational awareness and information sharing solution for local public administrations based on advanced big data analysis

Date: 
01/09/2017 to 31/08/2020

Introduction

The CS-AWARE project approach will be a big step towards automation of cyber incident detection, classification and visualisation, and will be based on mature big data analysis tools and methodologies provided by consortium partners.

This solution enables detect, classify and visualize cybersecurity incidents in real-time, supporting the prevention or mitigation of cyber attacks.
However, cyber situational awareness will never be a fully automatic process that only requires to install a tool that, without any configuration, will be able to monitor the different setups and configurations of different organizational IT infrastructures.

Who is the project designed for?

Results for end users to provide a cybersecurity situational awareness solution for small to medium sized IT infrastructures.

Situational Awareness

  • While providing automated mechanisms for information sharing, the user stays in control over which data will be shared, especially when confidentiality or privacy matters have to be taken into account.

Information Sharing

  • While providing cybersecurity strategies that can be invoked automatically to mitigate incidents or attacks, the user should retain the control about which strategies will be invoked in which situation, and/or if they should be invoked without user interaction.

Self-healing

  • While providing cybersecurity strategies that can be invoked automatically to mitigate incidents or attacks, the user should retain the control about which strategies will be invoked in which situation, and/or if they should be invoked without user interaction.

How is your project benefitting the end-user?

Increased competitiveness of European ICT security products and services catering to the needs of SMEs, local public administrations and individuals.
Increased resilience against widespread cybersecurity threats facing SMEs, local public administrations and individuals.
Increased effectiveness of cybersecurity solutions through usability advancements and increased automation.
