PROJECT TITLE

H2020 SECANT: Security And privacy protection in Internet of Things devices

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The SECANT platform will enhance the capabilities of organisations’ stakeholders, implementing (a) collaborative threat intelligence collection, analysis and sharing; (b) innovative risk analysis specifically designed for interconnected nodes of an industrial ecosystem; (c) cutting-edge trust and accountability mechanisms for data protection and (d) security awareness training for more informed security choices. The proposed solution’s effectiveness and versatility will be validated in four realistic pilot use case scenarios applied in the healthcare ecosystem. Ultimately, SECANT will contribute decisively towards improving the readiness and resilience of the organisations against the crippling modern cyber-threats, increasing the privacy, data protection and accountability across the entire interconnected ICT ecosystem, and reducing the costs for security training in the European market.

8BELLS ROLE

8BELLS is leading work package 8 (WP8) for Dissemination, Communication and Exploitation of the SECANT project. Besides setting up the DEC Strategy, 8BELLS is handling the project dissemination and communication activities, such as creating the project’s graphic identity as the basis for all communication tools (e.g., the web platform, social media, market insights, practical guides, policy briefs, PR outputs, etc.). 8BELLS is also involved in creating liaisons with stakeholders from the industry, academic and healthcare domain, at EU and country level, in order to interchange information, training tools and material.

Finally, 8BELLS is involved in the organization of stakeholder events, and, through its Safe Secure Societies network, is going to distribute additional materials and articles relevant to the European cybersecurity stakeholder and research community.
