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.
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.
Cyberwiser: Real-time, risk management-based solutions to democratise cybersecurity

Cyber-attacks are becoming a clear obstacle for European economies to strive. It is decreasing trust of the users and slowing down the growth of the Digital Single Market. Damage is not only economical, but also has high societal impact, since attacking sensitive information and critical infrastructures that provide essential services for society that, in the most dramatic case, may lead to loss of human lives.
This is the first of a series of webinar presenting the suite of WISER services going to market in 2017.
In this webinar we introduce you to the WISER project, its main objectives and innovative approach to create awareness and a global cyber security culture.
The WISER services are presented with particular focus on CyberWISER Light, the first tool of the WISER suite, already available online for free.
