Actions

Objective 1:
Proposals submitted under this Objective:

  • must address activities to facilitate the access from national CSIRTs to the MeliCERTes facility cooperation mechanism e.g. systems integration; testing; the development or acquisition of secure devices and software, interfaces, gateways; translation of local tools into common formats.
  • where relevant, they may also address activities for increasing the preparedness of national CSIRTs e.g. the development or acquisition of infrastructure including software tools; development of skills and structural support encompassing training and services to local agents; business case development (i.e. economic and financial appraisal and evaluation).

Objective 2:
Proposals submitted under this Objective must address activities for increasing the preparedness of OESs and DSPs e.g. development or acquisition of infrastructure including software tools; development of skills and structural support encompassing training and services to local agents; national level information exchanges/Information Sharing and Analysis Centres (ISACs); and business case development (i.e. economic and financial appraisal and evaluation).

Objective 3:
Proposals submitted under this Objective must address activities focused on developing more resilient and secure dataflows, as well as for increasing the preparedness of the underlying hardware to reduce vulnerabilities and to withstand cyber threats and attacks. In particular, proposals associated with 5G deployments along cross-border road corridors, to be specified in the proposal, and involving connected, automated vehicles would provide practical feedback on cybersecurity risks and incidents

Objective 4:
Proposals submitted under this Objective must address activities for improving the effectiveness of NCAs and SPOCs e.g. development or acquisition of tools and skills to access the security of network and information systems of OES and DSPs, and the set-up of structural support.
