PROTECTIVE H2020 Project Begins Second Phase & Pilot

The Email Laundry brings Industry-Leading Threat Intelligence Expertise to Improve Project Data

Kildare, Ireland, September 2018 – The PROTECTIVE H2020 project, which aims to improve cyber awareness, has recently unveiled the second phase of pilot 1 on 17 September in Krakow during the cybercrime research symposium eCrimeEU2018.

Phase 2 marks the beginning of the three National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) – CESNET (Czech Republic), PSNC (Poland) and RoEduNet (Romania) – sharing cybersecurity information. This milestone marks further headway in the project’s overall objective, namely improving awareness of cyberattack risks, setting up a cybersecurity-data and information processing and collating system and sharing information between the cybersecurity teams of the various organizations taking part in the project.

Alongside phase 2, the PROTECTIVE 2020 project has begun developing their second pilot. This pilot aims to bring actionable threat intelligence to SMEs and other public bodies across Europe. In order to achieve this goal, The Email Laundry has developed a tool to bring relevant alerts directly to the organization.

Cybersecurity is one of the biggest threats facing business and society today. Combatting these attacks have become a main priority for governments and organizations alike.
