Role and main tasks in COMPACT
INOV will actively participate in identifying the most wide spread threats and cyber security issues that end-users face — via description and analysis of current interactions between user's global information systems, proprietary solutions and installed COTS products, followed by recommendations and policies for their improvement towards better organization cybersecurity. At the later stage of the project such activity will serve as a basis for further developing the Business Process Intrusion Detection System, able to identify potential threats by revealing out-of-the-pattern events in the information flow. INOV will also support the Municipality of Amadora in the demonstration in Portugal and lead the Communication & Dissemination WP.
