The CIPSEC project – UNIFIED SECURITY

July 2016

High levels of protection in IT and OT
Worldsensing Ltd is participating in the CIPSEC(Enhancing Critical Infrastructure Protection with innovative SECurity framework) project, which is co-funded by the EC through the H2020 programme under the Secure societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens programme funding.
In a context of unprecedented transformation and growing global interdependency and threats, the CIPSEC project aims to create a unified security framework that combines state-of-the-art heterogeneous security products to offer high levels of protection in IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) departments of critical infrastructures (CI). As part of this framework, CIPSEC will offer a complete ecosystem of security services to support the proposed technical solutions reliably and predictably. These services include vulnerability tests and recommendations, key personnel training courses, public-private partnerships (PPPs), forensics analysis, standardization and protection against cascading effects. All solutions and services will be validated in three pilots performed in three different CI environments: transportation, health, and environment. CIPSEC will also develop a marketing strategy for optimal positioning of its solutions in the CI security market.
The project is being delivered by a consortium of 11 partners including Worldsensing (through its subsidiary Worldsensing Ltd), Atos Spain, the University of Patras (Greece), Consorzio per il Sistema Informativo (CSI PIEMONTE) (Italy), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain), the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (Greece), the Technische Universitat Darmstadt (Germany), DB Netz AG (Germany), the Hospital Clinic i Provincial de Barcelona (Spain), COMSEC Ltd (Israel), Bitdefender SRL (Romania), Empelor GmbH (Switzerland) and  AEGIS IT RESEARCH Ltd (UK).
