KEMEA being the Coordinator of the Horizon 2020 Foresight Project, successfully organized between 1 – 2 October 2019, the project Kick off Meeting in Athens, Greece. The meeting was attended by 50 representatives of FORESIGHT Consortium. During the KoM the project partners discussed the planned work and decided about the near future actions taken within the framework of the project.
FORESIGHT is a research project funded by Horizon2020 EU’s new research and innovation programme, with the aim to develop a federated cyber-range solution to enhance the preparedness of cybersecurity professionals at all levels and advance their skills towards preventing, detecting, reacting and mitigating sophisticated cyber-attacks. The project with duration of 36 months (1 October 2019 – 30 September 2021) and a total budget of 7.3 Million Euros brings together leading European research/academic institutions, governmental organisations, industrial partners and legal partners.
The FORESIGHT project’s scope is to deliver an ecosystem of networked realistic training and simulation platforms that collaboratively bring unique cyber-security aspects from the aviation, smart grid and naval domains. The proposed platform will extend the capabilities of existing cyber-ranges and will allow the creation of complex cross-domain/hybrid scenarios to be built jointly with the IoT domain. Emphasis is given on the design and implementation of realistic and dynamic scenarios that are based on identified and forecasted trends of cyberattacks and vulnerabilities extracted from cyber-threat intelligence gathered from the dark web; this will enable cybersecurity professionals to rapidly adapt to an evolving threat landscape.
