In this section you will find more information about the WISER project, its progress and results.
The section is organized into four areas:
Deliverables - This area contains the results of the WISER's research & development efforts in form of public deliverables, showing the progress of the project work.
Presentations - This area contains public presentations held by the WISER representatives in different events, such as conferences, webinars etc.
Publications - This area provides a list of publications produced by the consortium and related to the work developed within the project.
Reports - This area contains different public studies and reports on cyber security.
D8.3 - PRACTICAL TOOLS FOR ASSESSING THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT OF RISK MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATION FOR CYBER SECURITY, FINAL VERSION
The overall aim of D8.3 is to show the pragmatic approach that WISER is taking to cyber risk management as an essential asset for businesses and public-sector organisations that depend on IT/computer software for their core business, operational efficiency, or added-value services.
Specifically, D8.3 reports on the final development of CW-SEIT.
This deliverable documents the implementation, deployment and operation of the Real-Time Assessment Infrastructure. It is composed of three modules, namely: 1) The Risk Assessment Engine; 2) The Data Warehouse and 3) The Decision Support System.
The document provides an overview of the modules and then goes deeper into the description of each of them and how they interplay with the rest of the Framework.
ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, has recently published a new report on implementing the NIS Directive which lays down measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the European Union.tr_103456v010101p.pdf
This document is the final version of the Communication Plan, covering the actions and impact for the period May 2016 to May 2017 and the plans for the last 6 months of the project (June-November 2017) as part of an all-partner commitment to communicating WISER and disseminating its results to the diverse audiences targeted.
This plan is now the focus of WP8 based on three pillars namely a complete product range for major marketing campaigns, portability to other verticals for verification (Manufacturing, Transportation, ICT, Healthcare and connected devices, Public Administrations) in addition to a wide pool of SMEs that also but not only operate in these verticals and a business model to be tested.
Release: June 201720170626_WISER_D8_6_v10.pdf
For the sixth year, ENISA publishes the annual report about significant outage incidents in the European electronic communications sector.
This presentation was held by Antonio Alvarez Romero (ATOS) during the 1st CIPSEC Workshop in Vilanova i La Geltrú (Spain) on 14 June 2017.
The presentation gives an overview of the WISER project and shows how the CyberWISER Light, CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus are different from the other cybersecurity services present in the market today.
The presentation focus on cyber risk management from a business point of view by considering all the business implications of a breach, from business interruption to reputational damage.
The IoD report, "Cyber security: Ensuring business is ready for the 21st century" supported by Barclays, shows that despite a number of high-profile cyber-attacks over the last year, more than a third (37%) of IoD members lead or work in organisations without a formal cyber security strategy, and worse still, in the event cybercrime was to hit their business, 40% would not know who to report it to.
The aim of the study is to provide a mapping of the technical requirements of the NIS Directive to existing standards, to identify gaps and overlaps in related standardisation and provide recommendations for the future work in this area.
The report identifies a relatively small number of gaps and areas of overlap in standardisation where there is no clear best practice to be adopted partly due to the diversity of the current standardisation ecosystem. This allows for several recommendations:
The rise of Internet of Things (IoT) devices gives attackers more opportunity. Consumer goods and industrial systems combined with the ever increasing commercial footprint online provides threat actors with more attack vectors than ever before.
According to the CISCO 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report, over 20% of organizations hit by data breaches last year experienced lost revenue, customers, missed or lost business opportunities.
The report revealed the potential financial impact of attacks on businesses, from enterprises to SMBs.
The BRC’s 2016 Retail Crime Survey revealed that 53% of all fraud in the industry comes from cyber-enabled incidents, amounting to estimated losses of £100 million.
In particular, examples of cyber-crimes include phishing, theft of consumer data, doxing and social engineering.10081-brc-retail-crime-survey-2016_v6.pdf
The aim of the report, which has been created in cooperation with Europol and Check Point, is to inform private individuals and organizations about the growing threat of Ransomware. The document describes the specific attack methods of the individual Ransomware groups and explains possible decryption tools, providing detailed guidance and practical advice for users to protect their computers against infections.ransomware-what_you_need_to_know.pdf
A practical Demo session showcasing CyberWISER Light, the online tool designed to help small organisations assess their cyber risk exposure and vulnerabilities.
The demo also features a sneak preview of CyberWISER Essential, an upgrade service with real-time monitoring and advanced assessment of cyber risk through specific sensors deployed on the target infrastructure.
The demo was held at DSS ITSEC 2016 in Riga.
Antonio Alvarez Romero (ATOS) is giving an high level overview of WISER project, higlighting its innovative vision, objectives and concrete outputs.
Learn about how WISER is making cyber security accessible and affordable, especially for SMEs by breaking down barriers to effective cyber risk management. ICT-intensive SMEs can easily access tools to regularly profile their cyber risks and carry out vulnerability tests to stop attacks before they happen.
The presentation was held at DSS ITSEC 2016 in Riga.
The Italian Cyber Security Report 2015, realized by CIS-Sapienza and by the Cyber Security National Laboratory of the National Interuniversity Consortium for Informatics , introduces the National Cyber Security Framework.
The Framework is based on the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and is the result of a Public-Private-Partnership.
