NORCICS will follow a holistic, comprehensive and systemic approach addressing people, processes and technology to protect critical sectors throughout the cybersecurity core functions (identify, protect, detect, respond, recover). In NORCICS, research on cybersecurity technologies will result in methods and tools, re-usable across different infrastructures, which will cover a wide variety of concepts. These will be validated in a number of demonstrators of different critical sectors.
The consortium members have complementary expertise that collectively covers most of the areas of fundamental research, the sectorial domains and the technological applications of cybersecurity. The user partners come from both the public and the private sector and cover all the critical sectors addressed in NORCICS. Additionally, a number of internationally highly reputed centers active in the field of cybersecurity have confirmed their participation in NORCICS.
NORCICS aspires to become an attractive and competent research environment in cybersecurity for the critical sectors, and to educate more than 18 PhD students and more than 7 postdoctoral researchers, competent in the cybersecurity needs of the society.
