European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures

The main objective of the ECSCI cluster is to create synergies and foster emerging disruptive solutions to security issues via cross-projects collaboration and innovation. Research activities will focus on how to protect critical infrastructures and services, highlighting the different approaches 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 will organize international conferences, and national or international workshops, involving both policy makers, industry and academic, practitioners, and representatives from the European Commission.

A platform for combined safety and security for European Critical Infrastructures

Motivated by the long-term expected impact of the CIP projects "Convergence of safety and security standards, and the pre-establishment of certification mechanisms". 


The platform will support: 

  • Combined Risk Assessment Process

  • Combined Safety & Security Catalogue

  • Supporting multi-dimensional decisions on safety and security

  • Ontologies

Contacts

Contribution to standards and regulations on the protection of Critical Infrastructures

Contributions on different topics:

  • Securing the supply chain in different Critical Infrastructure sectors (air transport, energy, finance, industry, healthcare, telecommunication, water, ...);

  • Guidelines on risk management in Critical Infrastructure Protection;

  • Standards for threat intelligence sharing;

  • EU Standardizations in safety and security;

  • Overcoming the separation between Security and Safety;

  • Links between safety & security and international organizations.

Contacts

European Common Platform for cascading effects on the different Critical Infrastructures

Cross-sectoral and multi-risk approach to cascading effects 


A platform for a common picture of cascading effects affecting multiple critical infrastructures 

  • Knowledge models and ontologies 

  • Interfaces between the different Critical Infrastructures

  • Common Cause Failures and Cascading Failures
