Cyber-MAR project Participation
Preparedness first, security always!
Cyber-MAR: Cyber preparedness actions for a holistic approach and awareness raising in the MARitime logistics supply chain
PEARL is delighted to announce its participation in the eagerly awaited Cyber-MAR project, officially launched in Porto Cheli, Greece on September 2019. Cyber-MAR, is an EU-funded H2020 innovation action, that addressed the call SU-DS01-2018 of the H2020 Programme and consists of 13 partners from 8 EU countries, united in their vision to boost cyber preparedness in the maritime sector as a highly prioritize aspect.
The aim of Cyber-MAR, coordinated by the Institute of Communication & Computer Systems (ICCS), is to fully unlock the value of using 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 both a knowledge-based platform and a decision support tool to cybersecurity measures, by deploying novel risk analysis and econometric models. Collected and analysed CSIRTs/CERTs data will feed the knowledge-based platform with new target scenarios and exercises.
PEARL in the framework of Cyber-MAR pilots will provide the operational expertise as a railway operator which will get involved in order to see possible cascading effects in the railway leg of an intermodal transport.
Through Cyber-MAR, the maritime logistics value chain actors will increase their cyber-awareness level and will validate their business continuity management, towards minimizing their business disruption potential. Cyber-MAR will act also as a cost-efficient training solution covering the maritime logistics value chain.
