21/09/2020 to 25/09/2020

This week's featured Cyberwatching.eu Project of the Week is the STOP-IT Project.

STOP-IT (Strategic, Tactical, Operational Protection of water Infrastructure against cyber-physical Threats), an H2020 funded project, aims to address the physical or cyber threats with severe societal consequences on water infrastructures, which is essential for human society, life and health. The STOP-IT project brings together a strong team of 23 partners, including water utilities, industrial technology developers, high tech small and medium-sized enterprises and top research & development providers from all across Europe. Together the consortium is developing solutions to the most pressing threats over the course of the next four years.

Prevention, Detection, Response and Mitigation of relevant risks at strategic, tactical and operational levels of planning will be taken into account to generate modular solutions (technologies, tools and guidelines) and an integrated software platform. STOP-IT solutions are based on:

a) mature technologies improved via their combination and embedment (incl. public warning systems, smart locks) and

b) novel technologies whose TRL will be increased (incl. cyber threat incident services, secure wireless sensor communications modules, context-aware anomaly detection technologies, fault-tolerant control strategies for SCADA integrated sensors, high-volume real-time sensor data protection via blockchain schemes, authorization engines; irregular human detection using new computer vision methods and WiFi and efficient water contamination detection algorithms).

Wojciech Wideł, Preetam Mukherjee, and Mathias Ekstedt from our partner KTH published in IEEE Access about their work in the SOCCRATES project.

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.
