ICCS Role:


Cyber preparedness actions for a holistic approach and awareness raising in the MARitime logistics supply chain

Cyber-MAR is an EU-funded H2020 innovation action running from September 2019 to August 2022 and deployed by a consortium of 13 partners from 8 EU countries, united in their vision to boost cyber preparedness in the maritime sector as a highly prioritize aspect.

The aim of Cyber-MAR is to fully unlock the value of using cyber range in the maritime logistics value chain via the development of an innovative simulation environment adapting in the peculiarities of the maritime sector, but being at the same time easily applicable in other transport subsectors. A combination of innovative technologies are the technology enablers of the proposed Cyber-MAR platform, which is not only a knowledge-based platform, but more importantly a decision support tool to cybersecurity measures, by deploying novel risk analysis and econometric models. CSIRTs/CERTs data collected will be analyzed and feed the knowledge-based platform with new-targeted scenarios and exercises. Through Cyber-MAR, the maritime logistics value chain actors will increase their cyber-awareness level; they will validate their business continuity management minimizing business disruption potential. Cyber-MAR will act as a cost-efficient training solution covering the maritime logistics value chain.
