Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT Rodrigo MENDES – DG CONNECT Rodrigo.Mendes@ec.europa.eu Privacy and Cybersecurity Research in Industrial Leadership (LEIT-ICT) and Societal Challenges (SC7).
Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT Security and privacy related research actions appear in Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) and Societal Challenges (SC). The calls in LEIT-ICT and SC7 are complimentary – they do not overlap.
Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT In SC7, the focus will be on innovation (closer to market) and is strongly linked with the Cybersecurity Strategy and proposed NIS Directive. In LEIT-ICT, the focus will be longer term research concerning technological building blocks (e.g. cryptography) and concepts (e.g. security by design).
Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT The Privacy and Cybersecurity actions (for 2014) can be found in the following calls: SC: Societal Challenge 7 – Secure Societies – Digital Security ( Privacy, Access Control, Risk management and assurance models ) LEIT: ICT Information and Communication Technologies, Objective 32: Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT
LEIT- ICT 32: Cybersecurity, Trustworthy ICT Looking for solutions guaranteeing end-to-end security that withstands progress for the lifespan of the application it supports, regardless of improvements in attacker hardware or computational capabilities. a.Research & Innovation Actions Security-by-design for end-to-end security Cryptography 36 M €: small and large projects b.Activities supporting the Cryptography Community 1 M€: Coordination and Support Actions
