Cyber-MAR: Cyber preparedness actions for a holistic approach and awareness raising in the MARitime logistics supply chain
Madrid, Spain - Atos, a global leader in Cloud, Cybersecurity and Digital Transformation, participates in the eagerly awaited Cyber-MAR project, officially launched in Porto Cheli, Greece on September 2019. Cyber-MAR, is an EU-funded H2020 innovation action, that addressed the call SU-DS01-2018 of the H2020 Programme and consists of 13 partners from 8 EU countries, united in their vision to boost cyber preparedness in the maritime sector as a highly prioritize aspect.
The aim of Cyber-MAR is to fully unlock the value of using cyber range in the maritime logistics value chain via the development of an innovative simulation environment adapting in the peculiarities of the maritime sector, but being at the same time easily applicable in other transport subsectors. A combination of innovative technologies are the technology enablers of the proposed Cyber-MAR platform, which is both a knowledge-based platform and a decision support tool to cybersecurity measures, by deploying novel risk analysis and econometric models. Collected and analysed CSIRTs/CERTs data will feed the knowledge-based platform with new target scenarios and exercises.
“I am proud of participating in a project like Cyber-MAR, where we can contribute with our large experi-ence in managing cybersecurity. Thanks to Cyber-MAR, we can contribute to the development of European cybersecurity and bring new business opportunities by extending our current products with innovative ca-pabilities in the area of cybersecurity training”, Rodrigo Díaz, Head of Cybersecurity Laboratory.
Atos, as the leader of exploitation work, is in charge of the strategy market implementation. The company already provides solutions for the protection of critical infrastructures, which have already been deployed in nuclear power stations, air traffic control systems and at the Olympic Games. Cyber-MAR results will contribute to add value to security protection solutions, by adding advanced training capabilities that would allow professionals of those critical infrastructures to gather specialized skills on cybersecurity.
Through Cyber-MAR, the maritime logistics value chain actors will increase their cyber-awareness level and will validate their business continuity management, towards minimizing their business disruption potential. Cyber-MAR will act also as a cost-efficient training solution covering the maritime logistics value chain.
