The H2020 SAINT project examines the problem of failures in cyber security by using a multidisciplinary approach that goes beyond the purely IT technical viewpoint. SAINT analyses and identifies incentives to improve levels of collaboration between cooperative and regulatory approaches to information sharing in order to enhance cyber security and mitigate: (a) the risk and (b) the impact from a cyber-attack, while providing, at the same time, solid economic evidence on the benefit from such improvement
Who is the project designed for?
SAINT stakeholders are all involved in the cyber-security domain: academic researchers, cyber security practitioners, market agents, law enforcement authorities, policy makers, regulators, governmental authorities. SAINT collects important information, regarding cyber-threats and relevant vulnerabilities, tangible (assets) and intangible (reputation) risks in order to identify the most relevant indicators and metrics.
SAINT analyses these cyber security data metrics with a multidisciplinary methodology, employing analytic frameworks from various scientific disciplines (IT, Economics, Psychology, Law), resulting in a new empirical science consisting of novel analytic methods and models for cyber-security.
The research and development that comprise the SAINT Analysis methodology, can be categorised into the following main scientific activities:
How is your project benefitting the end-user?
SAINT will benefit all relevant stakeholders by:
Through these activities, the aim of SAINT project is to improve social, institutional and economic comprehension of cyber security failures, facilitate information dissemination and sharing, and improve decision making, governance and investments by the relevant stakeholders.
