Suite5 in PUZZLE
Suite5 leads the development of the project’s blockchain enabled marketplace for data sharing on cyber-security operational threat intelligence, while it also leads the construction of the project’s MVP. Moreover, the S5 Activity Tracker infrastructure of Suite5 will act as a demonstrator to test the project’s solutions during the piloting phase.
PUZZLE will implement a highly usable cybersecurity, privacy and data protection management marketplace targeted at SMEs&MEs that enables them to monitor, forecast, assess and manage their cyber risks through targeted cybersecurity services, increase their cybersecurity awareness through the efficient heterogeneous information processing, the establishment of knowledge sharing with other SMEs&MEs and extract insights based on advanced analytics. The PUZZLE will track the relationships among the cyber assets of each SME&ME, considering the available network, compute and storage infrastructure and use them to efficiently calculate individual, cumulative and propagated risks, as well as recommend and apply mitigation actions. PUZZLE will also support vulnerabilities and threats assessment in a collaborative manner based on the homogenization of data provided by the SMEs&MEs. Data will be collected by resource handling and monitoring agents applied over Cloud/Edge Computing, IoT and network infrastructure. Such data will be enriched with data provided in relevant open repositories. SMEs&MEs data sharing will take place through blockchain-based technologies for secure data management. Based on the calculated risks and the provided graph topology, the application of resilient defensive strategies will be recommended, considering the type of infrastructure used by the SME&ME. Automated defensive strategies deployment mechanisms are also going to be made available, reducing a lot the complexity and the burden for the deployment of the provided services by cybersecurity managers in SMEs&MEs. Special emphasis will be given on the usability and the rise of competitiveness of the PUZZLE Marketplace, by designing solutions that can be easily on-boarded by external cybersecurity providers and can be seamlessly adopted by the end-users taking into account their preferences.
