CIPHER - Integrated Cyber-security framework for Privately Held information systems and European Roadmap


Description

CIPHER project accomplished an in-depth analysis of the reality of security and trust in privately held information systems at European level before developing a methodological framework which contains recommendations designed to prevent cyber-crime and to react in case a malicious cyber-attach has been attempted. Finally, a global European regulatory and technological roadmap has been be advised. This project addresses today’s transnational cybercrime challenges, heeding not only technological aspects, but also incorporating social and ethical concerns related to privately held information systems; policies and regulations at national level on the matter.

Our Role
CIPHER proposes to develop a Framework as a suite of recommendations and best practices for the enhancement of security in privately held information systems and the prevention of cyber-crime, after a thorough characterization and diagnosis of the current situation in cyber-security, together with the related privacy and ethical constraints. International initiatives, organizations, strategies and national policies concerned with cyber-crime will be regarded as well. CIPHER will seek endorsement and to validate and improve the framework by performing a series of systematic end-user tests on a number of running ICT systems and by celebrating a European-wide workshop attended by experts and relevant stakeholders. CIPHER will also foster the adoption of the project’s conclusions and findings by proposing recommendations and a sensible Roadmap to be adopted into the European global security and technological agenda; and by defining and putting into action dissemination activities.
