H2020 SECANT: Security And privacy protection in Internet of Things devices
The industrial sector is experiencing an unprecedented number of changes in recent years. New models of remote delivery, especially in complex ICT infrastructures such as healthcare, increase the potential impact of cybersecurity breaches to a level that has not been experienced before. The SECurity And privacy protectioN in internet of Things devices (SECANT) project is aiming to strengthen the understanding of risks, at both human and technical level through the delivery of a holistic framework for cyber security risk assessment for enhancing the digital security, privacy, and personal data protection in complex ICT infrastructures, such in the healthcare ecosystem. The SECANT platform will implement a collaborative threat intelligence collection, analysis and sharing, an innovative risk analysis specifically designed for interconnected nodes of an industrial ecosystem, a cutting- edge trust and accountability mechanism for data protection and a security awareness training for more informed security choices. This platform will be demonstrated and validated across four operational pilots reflecting different real-life business cases.
8BELLS leads the communication and dissemination task of the project. Its mission is to diffuse the SECANT’s objectives and goals to the European community through a wide spectum of activities. 8BELLS handles the project’s graphic entity while it is also involved in writing articles targeted to both the scientific community and the general public, in bringing in touch different stakeholders thus creating fruitful liaisons and synergies between them such as joint seminar and conferences. 8BELLS will also closely work with the consortium partners to make sure that the SECANT’s research and innovation activities will be well exploited by concretising their value and impact for commercial or societal challenges.
