The ECHO Project delivers an organized and coordinated approach to strengthen proactive cyber defense of the European Union, through effective and efficient multi-sector collaboration.
ECHO Project aims to establish a strong and resounding sustainable network of cyber-security centers and competence for innovation within European Union, which will facilitate the sharing of knowledge, threats and cyber incidents for improving cyber-security solutions, raise awareness of security and protection methods and establish best practices to reduce risk exposure.
The ECHO Consortium, composed of 30 members from different fields and sectors including health, transport, manufacturing, ICT, education, research, telecom, energy, space, healthcare, defense & civil protection, will develop, model and demonstrate a network of cyber research and competence centers, with a center of research and competence at the hub.
The core objectives of the ECHO Project are:
1.The ECHO Multi-sector Assessment Framework refers to the analysis of challenges and opportunities derived from sector specific use cases, transversal cyber-security needs analysis and development of inter-sector Technology Road-maps involving horizontal cyber-security disciplines.
2.The Early Warning System, Federation of Cyber Ranges and Inter-sector Technology Road-maps will then be subject of Demonstration Cases incorporating relevant involvement of inter-dependent industrial sectors. The ECHO Cyber-skills Framework provides the foundation for development of cyber-security education and training programs including a common definition of transversal and inter-sector skills and qualifications needed by cyber-security practitioners.
3.The ECHO Cyber-security Certification Scheme provides a sector specific and inter-sector process for cyber-security certification testing of new technologies and products resulting from the proposed technology road-maps.
