Brussels - Concertation Meeting, 26/04/2018


The event was held at the Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place Rue Auguste Orts 3-7, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium

The objective of this first Cyberwatching.eu concertation meeting was to take stock of the current R&I landscape and to identify common themes and challenges for clustering activities. With a strong EC presence, the aim of the event was to ensure all the projects of the catalogue got noticed. There was opportunities for all projects to have their say through interactive discussions, break-out sessions, position papers and presentation opportunities.

With the cyber security and privacy market very much in mind, for the Concertation meeting Cyberwatching.eu created a portfolio of position papers from Unit H1 projects as well as projects coming from other units dealing with cyber security and privacy related themes. These was published online and showcased at the event.

Future Events

In order to ensure that the SOCCRATES platform is fit for purpose, the project will carry out three pilots to validate the platform in realistic environments. This webinar will show results and experiences from the second pilot, in which the complete SOCCRATES platform was validated in realistic (on-site) environments at Vattenfall, mnemonic and Shadowserver.

SOCCRATES provides a deep dive session on the SOCCRATES platform at the ONE Conference 2022. 

Within the H2020 EU project SOCCRATES a security decision support platform has been developed for Security Operation Centres (SOCs) and Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs). This, so called ‘SOCCRATES Platform’ is targeted at organisation’s inhouse SOC and at Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) that provide SOC services.
