Most SOCs and CSIRTs have a good set of capabilities. But present day SOC and CSIRT capabilities simply do not suffice to deal with the persistence and sophistication of professional threat actors, also considering the increasing complexity of ICT infrastructures and shortage of skilled staff. Therefore we need to increase the speed and effectiveness of detection of and response to ongoing attacks, and the scope, effectiveness and efficiency of proactive analysis of threats to the ICT infrastructure to enhance its cyber resilience.
The war in Ukraine has brought to the surface the increasing threat of cyber attacks against Europeans. These attacks are not only targeting governmental actors, critical infrastructures, and media, but also businesses, including small businesses.
Wojciech Wideł, Preetam Mukherjee, and Mathias Ekstedt from our partner KTH published in IEEE Access about their work in the SOCCRATES project.
Mathias Ekstedt: ‘This paper covers the underlying algorithm that was developed for automatically suggesting courses of actions to the SOC operator. It analyzes the structure of attack graphs generated from models of the monitored ICT infrastructure and fits defense actions into a specified available budget.’
Agron Bajraktari, Francesca Soro, David Allison and Paul Smith from our partner AIT wrote a blog post about their work in the SOCCRATES project: 'From Anomalies to Actions: Reasoning About the Root Cause of Anomalies to Determine Actionable Insights for Cyber-Attack Mitigation'.
CONCORDIA WOMEN’s AWARDS are established to celebrate women in cybersecurity. The awards aim to recognize outstanding women working in cybersecurity and privacy. The prizes intend to encourage young females to continue pursuing their careers in cybersecurity and praise prominent women for their outstanding contributions and achievements.
International Cybersecurity Forum FIC2022, a major cybersecurity event in Europe, took place on 7-9 June in Lille, France. It gathered together over 14.000 attendees from around Europe – service and solution providers, consultants, law enforcement, government agencies, EU projects and institutions, education providers, and end users.
On the event of the adoption of the draft regulation laying down measures for a high common level of cybersecurity at the institutions, bodies, offices and agencies of the Union, the AI4HealthSec project kicked off a process to provide its opinion.
