  8. 8. Last but not least: Stuxnet!Tailored specifically against SCADA systems, is the most recent demonstration that not only attacks are sophisticated, complex and well-coordinatedIt also demonstrates that the bad guys: - are very well-equipped - have ambitious goals (cyber-physical systems) markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 8

  11. 11. Predicting “what’s next”SysSec: managing threatsand vulnerabilities for thefuture Internet a NoE, 2010-2014 General approach Proactive solutions Collaborate – At a European level – With our international colleagues (see website for updated list) markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 11
  12. 12. SysSec proposes a game-changing approach tocybersecurity: Currently Researchers are mostly reactive: they usually track cyberattackers after an attack has been launched thus, researchers are always one step behind attackers SysSec aims to break this vicious cycle Researchers should become more proactive: Anticipate attacks and vulnerabilities Predict and prepare for future threats Work on defenses before attacks materialize. markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 12
  13. 13. SysSec Aim and Objectives (I)1. Create an active, vibrant, and collaborating community of Researchers with the expertise, capacity, and determination to anticipate and mitigate the emerging threats and vulnerabilities on the Future Internet. SysSec aims to create a sense of “community” among researchers, to mobilize this community, to consolidate its efforts, to expand their collaboration internationally, and become the single point of reference for system security research in Europe. markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 13
  14. 14. SysSec Aim and Objectives (II)2. Advance European Security Research well beyond the state of the art research efforts are fragmented SysSec aims to provide a research agenda and align their research activities with the agenda make SysSec a leading player in the international arena. markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 14
  15. 15. SysSec Aim and Objectives (III)3. Create a virtual distributed Center of Excellence in the area of emerging threats and vulnerabilities. By forming a critical mass of European Researchers and by aligning their activities, A leading role internationally, empowered to undertake large- scale, ambitious and high-impact research efforts.4. Create a Center of Academic Excellence in the area create an education and training program targeting young researchers and the industry. lay the foundations for a common graduate degree in the area with emphasis on Systems Security. markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 15
  16. 16. SysSec Aim and Objectives (IV)5. Maximize the impact of the project by proactive dissemination to the appropriate stakeholders. disseminate its results to international stakeholders so as to form the needed strategic partnerships (with similar projects and organizations overseas) to play a major role in the area. dissemination within the Member States will reinforce SysSecs role as a center of excellence and make SysSec a beacon for a new generation of European Researchers. 1st SysSec Workshop, July 6th 2011, Amsterdam, VU6. Create Partnerships and transfer technology to the European Security Industry. create a close partnership with Security Industry facilitate technology transfer wherever possible to further strengthen the European Market. markatos@ics.forth.gr - www.syssec-project.eu – Effectsplus Clustering Event – July 4, 2011 16
