The major goal of the project is to provide a realistic roadmap for improving resilience against cybercrime and cyber terrorism. Where should taxpayer money be invested for research purposes? What are the challenges? What approaches should be taken to tackle these challenges? Once possible solutions are found how should the results be tested and evaluated to demonstrate effectiveness?
The consortium will use a holistic approach, analysing functions and capabilities addressing technical and human issues which are inter-related with legal and ethical aspects. On the human front, the project will address the wide spectrum of players including technicians, end users and their intermediaries, including administrators, policy makers, regulators and of course the instigators of cybercrime who in fact populate across the whole spectrum.
In parallel with looking at the human and technical aspects, the project will take into account the various different groups and operators such as LEAs, CERTS, personal users, governments, industry and research and commercial organisations.
Earlier reference to a realistic roadmap includes the issue of technological development progressing more quickly than the slower evolution of regulations and procedures.
The consortium has its roots with the Integrated Mission Group Security (IMG-S) Cyber Theme Area in which the cyber security partners have extensive experience in roadmap development. The Supporting Members will ensure that Roadmap proposals will have the benefit of knowledge and experience from across both Europe and North America (USA and Canada).
The consortium will have a very practical approach, with most partners being SMEs with a good understanding of what is realistic and practical and with an interest in finding a constructive roadmap that will complement LEA and research organisations - without creating a bottleneck of problems and obstructions.
