The EUROPEAN CLUSTER FOR SECURING CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURES – ECSCI is a cluster of Horizon 2020 projects for securing critical infrastructures. Its main objective is to bring about synergetic, emerging disruptive solutions to security issues via cross-projects collaboration and innovation. The cluster will research how to protect critical infrastructures and services, highlighting differences (approaches, sectors of interest, etc.) between the clustered projects and establishing tight and productive connections with closely related and complementary H2020 projects. To promote the activities of the cluster, ECSCI organizes international conferences, and national or international workshops highlighting the achievements within the cluster. These events involve policy makers and the general public. The cluster’s foreseen impacts will include stimulating the uptake of project results, the exploitation of synergies, sharing best practices, effectively executing activities of common interest (such as IPR management, standardisation and policymaking), stimulating network and alliance formation for further Research and Technical Development and industrial innovation, and increasing public awareness of the cluster activities by targeted communication activities.

ATENA aims at achieving the desired level of Security and Resilience of CIs, while preserving their efficient and flexible management, against a wide variety of cyber-physical threats, being those malicious attacks or unexpected faults which may affect IACS, corporate networks or single devices.
ATENA supports prevention – detection – reaction activities by combining new security metrics, new anomaly detection algorithms, risk assessment methodologies and reaction strategies within a distributed environment, providing a suite of integrated ICT networked components and advanced tools embedding innovative algorithms for both correct static CI configuration and fast dynamic CI reaction in presence of adverse events.
