The Cyber-Resilience Lab (CyResLab) of the European Software Institute – Center Eastern Europe is announcing three cybersecurity courses this summer in Sofia. Dates are as follows:
The ECHO Early Warning System is reaching its first milestone, with twelve organizations already federated within the initial Network! Today, a complex training exercise will test both the technical system and the interactions among the teams, with 70 active participants. We defined a complete kill chain of cyber-attacks based on recent Covid-19 phishing campaigns, malware, and ransomware and we will monitor how the teams will react and share information within the Network. As a result of the exercise, ECHO will publish a white paper collecting feedbacks, results, and future steps.
This morning, the ECHO consortium gathered together from their homes for our 1st year General Assembly, replacing the original Rome face-to-face event. The meeting was opened by special guest, our Project Officer, Monica Lanzenberger from EC, followed by keynotes of Wim Mees Project Coordinator, and Matteo Merialdo PIM of ECHO.
82 team members are present at the assembly, representing all 30 partners of ECHO.
As Covid-19 is spreading continuously across the globe, we must remain quarantined in our homes. Home office and home-studying offer great opportunities for cyber-criminals. The ECHO network of cybersecurity centers has joined forces to establish its COVID-19 Cyber Defence Alliance in order to support all initiatives that aim at protecting the EU member states, key services critical infrastructure, and users from cyberattacks.
