VeSiKi - Accompanying research on critical infrastructures

01/01/2015 to 30/06/2018

Project Description:

VeSiKi supports the collaborative projects in several ways: The project provides an internet-based platform through which the projects are networked and coordinated in terms of content. By sharing and deploying new development methods, new IT security solutions can be directly validated by the operators involved, which should also support the transfer of new developments into the application. Practical issues are in the foreground: Are the solutions practical? Are they easy to use? Do you demonstrably increase security in simulated attacks?
When developing the solutions, legal requirements of the state as well as applicable standards and standards are taken into account. This creates security for the manufacturers, because they can follow accepted recommendations in the development. Users can rest assured that the solutions they use meet the minimum requirements.
At the same time, recommendations for the legal further development of the IT security law and a standardization roadmap are developed in the research project.

EU to strenghten its expertise in cybersecurity research, technology and industrial developmen

Europe is stepping up its protection against cybersecurity threats, and is discussing a new structure of pool of expertise which will help secure the digital single market and increase the EU’s autonomy in the area of cybersecurity.

Europe is currently working on the establishment of a top knowledge base for cybersecurity and a network of national cybersecurity coordination centres called the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29
25/03/2019 to 29/03/2019

The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
