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).

Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.
