NEW - CEPS Webinars in collaboration with Wavestone and ICF

Part-1: 8 June from 11.00 to 13.00

Part-2: 11 June from 11.00 to 13.00

The new European Commission has put a strong emphasis on cybersecurity initiatives in the Communication on "Shaping Europe's Digital future". Among various actions, it has also anticipated the review of the Security of Network and Information Sytems (NIS) Directive.
In this context, I  would like to inform you that the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels  -an ECSO member -   jointly with Wavestone and ICF are launching a new study for the European Commission’s DG CNECT to “Support the review of the Directive (EU) 2016/1148 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union (NIS Directive)”.
This study’s aim is to assist the Commission in evaluating such an existing legal and policy framework by assessing the role the NIS Directive has played in ensuring an adequate level of protection of network and information systems across Europe. The study will also identify new policy concepts and measures that will contribute to increasing the level of European cybersecurity. Combining findings’ evaluation with a number of additional sources, the study will then tackle key problems in the area, including new issues, emerged since the adoption of the Directive in 2016, and will identify and analyze policy options to address them and assess their potential impacts.

As part of the study, CEPS is hosting the opening online workshops to present this new project and engage EU stakeholders in the review of the NIS Directive.

Request for inputs. The Task 3.5: Motivation, Focus, Progress document focuses on a specific class of attacks against AI-based systems. Stakeholders are kindly invited to share their knowledge on the current state of the affairs regarding model poisoning attacks, including concerns, awareness, mitigation approaches (see Task 3.5 document below). The general feedback on the documents is also welcomed (see contact details of the project coordinators in the documents). More information about the project: http://www.project-sherpa.eu/.

REPORT - April 2020

IntelProbe - Honey Pot Network Report

In this report, IntelProbe observes that the sources of attacks targeting especially the public sector match the ToR Exit Nodes. Many attacks were found to originate from the Far East. IntelProbe analysis shows that simple password policies and network devices with default configuration are targeted. All relevant data and information can be found in the findings section of the this report.
