CYBER-MAR

Cyber Preparedness Actions for a holistic approach and awareness raising in the MARitime logistics supply chain
Project Duration
September 2019
-
September 2022
Research Priority Area
Maritime and Marine Technology and Innovation

Cyber-MAR is an effort to fully unlock the value of the use of 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 not only a knowledge-based platform but more importantly a decision support tool to cybersecurity measures, by deploying novel risk analysis and econometric models. CSIRTs/CERTs data collected will be analysed and feed the knowledge-based platform with new-targeted scenarios and exercises.

Through Cyber-MAR, the maritime logistics value chain actors will increase their cyber-awareness level; they will validate their business continuity management minimizing business disruption potential. Cyber-MAR will act as a cost-efficient training solution covering the maritime logistics value chain.

WMU will contribute to the development and validation of econometric models, providing meaningful information and insights for the cyber-MAR community stakeholders with a focus on insurance companies and governmental bodies. WMU will furthermore lead the training and awareness activities work package.

The Cyber-MAR project falls under Horizon 2020; Secure societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens  SU-DS-2018-2019-2020 Call
