Scalable multidimensionAl sitUation awaReness sOlution for protectiNg european ports (SAURON)
SAURON project addresses the topic CIP-01-2016-2017: Prevention, detection, response and mitigation of the combination of physical and cyber threats to the critical infrastructure of Europe and put the focus on protection of EU Ports under Transport Infrastructure and means of transportation type of CI.
SAURON proposes to ensure an adequate level of protection and resilience against physical, cyber and a combined threat for the EU ports and limiting, as far as possible, the detrimental effects for the society and citizens of a declared attack.
The vision of SAURON is to provide a multidimensional yet installation-specific Situational Awareness (SA) platform to help port operators anticipate and withstand potential cyber, physical or combined threats to their freight and cargo business and to the safety of their employees, visitors, passengers and citizens in the vicinity. This will be achieved by accomplishing the following operational objectives:
Critical infrastructure, like ports, face growing threats - both physical and cybernetic. In response, EU-funded researchers have developed novel 'hybrid' situation-awareness tools, including visualisation techniques for detecting, preventing, and mitigating the impacts of potential attacks.
SAURON: Ports prepared for combined physical-cyber attacks The ports, which are key logistics hubs, are exposed to multiple threats. The security departments strive to control numerous causes of risks for goods, passengers, infrastructures and information systems. The challenge they face is to prevent, act and minimize any threat. In this context comes SAURON, a project funded by the European Union under the H2020 program, coordinated by the Valenciaport Foundation and together with S2 Grupo and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), which provides ports with a holistic security system advanced combining physical-cybernetic threats through advanced information and visualization systems.
This workshop brought together several research teams from all across Europe that currently collabotate in other european projects also related with the protection of critical infrastructures such as MITIGATE, SPARKS, or HYRIM.
A new EU project aims to ensure an adequate level of both physical and cyber protection for European ports and to limit, as far as possible, the detrimental effects of combined physical and cyber-attacks.
On 30th and 31st May, the Port of Valencia hosted the kick-off meeting of the SAURON project (scalable multidimensional situation awareness solution for protecting European ports), coordinated by Fundación Valenciaport and co-financed by the European Commission through the H2020 programme.
SAURON: SCALABLE MULTIDIMENSIONAL SITUATION AWARENESS SOLUTION FOR PROTECTING EUROPEAN PORTS
SAURON wants to be a Project committed with its community and end users. For this reason, SAURON has included in its website a restricted area to offer to its community members different advantages and contents not available for the people not registered in the SAURON community area.
Once you are registered you will be part of the SAURON mailing list through which you will receive periodically news, invitations to SAURON events, newsletters and so on.
On the other hand, the registration process will provide you a login and a password to access the SAURON community area where you will be able to download brief summaries of the SAURON deliverables and more technical information.
