FORESIGHT is an Innovation project as part of Horizon 2020 agenda, aiming to develop a federated cyber-range solution to enhance the preparedness of cyber-security professionals at all levels and advance their skills towards preventing, detecting, reacting and mitigating sophisticated cyberattacks.
This will be achieved by delivering an ecosystem of networked realistic training and simulation platforms that collaboratively bring unique cyber-security aspects from the aviation, smart grid and naval domains.
The proposed platform will extend the capabilities of existing cyber-ranges and will allow the creation of complex cross-domain/hybrid scenarios to be built jointly with the IoT domain.
Aside from the development of skills, the project aims at a holistic approach to cyber-threat management with the ultimate goal of cultivating a strong security culture. As such, the project puts considerable emphasis on research and development as the key to increasing training dynamics and awareness methods for exceeding the rate of evolution of cyber-attackers.
FORESIGHT has a budget of ~€7.3 mil and it involves 21 partners from 9 countries.
