Worldsensing showcases three innovation projects at Smart City Expo World Congress
Barcelona, November 2018
At Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), the leading international event for cities, Worldsensing is one of the Event Partners, and exhibiting at booth #411. In addition to showcasing how its Smart City technology provides a fast-track stream for cities to go smart, the Worldsensing Innovation team promotes three projects which are part of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
Over ten years ago, Worldsensing set out to develop innovative technology with the potential to overcome global challenges. To stay in touch with latest trends and technological developments, the company is part of several publicly funded research projects which are conducted in close collaboration with academia and European partners. At SCEWC, booth visitors have the opportunity to learn more about three of them: CIPSEC, mF2C and SMESEC.
CIPSEC – Enhancing Critical Infrastructure Protection with innovative SECurity framework
The main aim of CIPSEC is to create a unified security framework that orchestrates 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. As part of this framework CIPSEC will offer a complete security ecosystem of additional services that can support the proposed technical solutions to work reliably and at professional quality.
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 critical infrastructure environments (transportation, health, environment). CIPSEC will also develop a marketing strategy for optimal positioning of its solutions in the CI security market. Find out more: www.cipsec.eu
mF2C – Towards an Open, Secure, Decentralized and Coordinated Fog-to-Cloud Management Ecosystem
With the number of devices exponentially growing globally, new cloud and fog models are expected to emerge, paving the way for shared, collaborative, extensible mobile, volatile and dynamic compute, storage and network infrastructure. When put together, cloud and fog computing create a new stack of resources, which we refer to as Fog-to-Cloud (F2C), creating the need for a new, open and coordinated management ecosystems.
The mF2C proposal sets the goal of designing an open, secure, decentralized, multi-stakeholder management framework, including novel programming models, privacy and security, data storage techniques, service creation, brokerage solutions, SLA policies, and resource orchestration methods.

SMESEC – Protecting Small and Medium-sized Enterprises digital technology through an innovative cyber-SECurity framework
Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs) are an important driver for innovation and growth in the EU. SMEs also stand to gain the most from innovative technology, because it is complicated and costly for them to set-up and run ICT in the traditional way. Taking into account cyber-security, SMEs do not always understand all the risks and business consequences for the development of technologies without the adequate level of protection against cybercrime.
SMESEC consortium is proposing to develop a cost-effective framework composed of specific cyber-security tool-kit to support SMEs in managing network information security risks and threats, as well as in identifying opportunities for implementing secure innovative technology in the digital market; for this consortium, it is important that SMEs do not only look at cyber-security as an obstacle, but also they understand the business opportunity beyond it.
