Cyber Security and Critical Infrastructure Protectio

Short description

The team has as a constant concern the identification of the latest trends in security, technology transfer activities and the capitalization of research results - concerns that are transposed both in terms of updating policies in the field and in developing response capabilities. Its interests are also visible in the development of new products and services for the analysis of vulnerabilities and proposals for risk limitation, as well as in the provision of higher-level training activities for specialists in the field.

CYBER SECURITY

This service aims to promote cybersecurity initiatives to respond to national and European policies, strategies and requirements, as well as increase the capacity to respond to cyber incidents and reduce their impact on cyber infrastructure resources and services, through profile research, proposal of minimum cyber security requirements.

Main activities

  • conducting advanced studies and research in the field of cyber security;
  • developing IT applications and systems to support the development of citizens' digital skills in order to increase the population's access to the information society and risk awareness by training users;
  • identification of emerging technologies and development of applications and systems in order to improve the quality of life of citizens;
  • proposals to improve the management of vulnerabilities and cyber security alerts;
  • providing expertise and consulting in cyber security;
  • optimization of information resources management systems in public administration;
  • optimizing the cyber security culture in public administration.

PROTECTION OF CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURES
