Strategic, Tactical, Operational Protection of water Infrastructure against cyber-physical Threats


The H2020 project "Strategic, Tactical, Operational Protection of water Infrastructure against cyber-physical Threats" (STOP-IT) focuses on the protection of critical water infrastructures (CIs) against physical and cyber threats.

STOP-IT brings together a team of major water utilities, industrial technology developers, high tech SMEs and top European Research and Development (R&D) providers.

STOP-IT solutions include:

a) mature technologies improved via their combination and embedment (including public warning systems, smart locks)

b) novel technologies (including fault-tolerant control strategies for SCADA integrated sensors, high-volume real-time sensor data protection via blockchain schemes; irregular human detection using new computer vision methods and WiFi and efficient water contamination detection algorithms)

The solutions are demonstrated with a front-runner/follower approach, where four advanced front-runner utilities, Aigües de Barcelona (Spain), Berliner Wasserbetriebe (Germany), Mekorot (Israel) and Oslo VAV (Norway) are twinned with Hessenwasser (Germany), Bergen Kommune (Norway), Emasagra (Spain) and DeWatergroep (Belgium), to stimulate mutual learning, transfer and uptake.
