The program is continuation of the previous program entitled "Future internet technologies: concepts, architectures, services and socio-economic aspects" where the building blocks of Future Internet and the on-line services were studied and solutions developed with a reflection to the socio-economics impact these technologies have brought to the society in the time frame of 4 years. In the next time frame the program will elaborate more specific challenges of the digital world where the Internet has become the blood veins of the world economy and society. In particular program addresses the needs for building innovative perspectives and opportunities in the area of cyber-space security by creating an open ecosystem for the development of innovative cyber-security services and solutions tailored for the emerging digitalized society. The program is creating cyber-range testbed system where cyber-security solutions for different sectors of the society, e.g. energy, eHealth, or eID, will be developed, deployed, trained and hence tested and validated with real data and testbeds. The cyber-range is viewed as a complete environment where large-scale cyber-security scenarios can be tested and the impact they have on current and future service-oriented infrastructure is evaluated with intention adequate measures for their mitigation to be provided. The program addresses as well the facilitation of secure and privacy-aware management of eID systems based on the design and incorporation on new attributes empowered with security and privacy algorithms and processes that enables stakeholders to access and share information and perform the related operation and work processes with guaranteed integrity on safe way. Cyber situational awareness modelling methods for trust and trustworthiness, prevention of appearance of false, inaccurate, or misleading information that are designed, presented and promoted to intentionally cause public harm are studied and analysed for enabling applicable mitigation and forensic procedures to be developed. The program addresses as well the creation of a set of best practices for situational security awareness management in business environment in micro finance systems and micro enterprises along with their impact on the overall national economy. Digitalization of the overall economy and the related transformation and the risk in line with the social impacts they bring are studied and analysed. The technology adoption as a top-down and bottom-up drivers of the organizational change are explored and evaluated in view of organizational culture and technology absorption capabilities.
Significance for science
The program proposes beyond the state-of-the-art solutions that improve the detection and analysis of the new cyber-attacks and threats in the cyber space. Additionally, the program increases the knowledge on the current cyber threat landscape. The program contributes to the overall security solutions for the critical infrastructures and provides them with capability to react in case of security breaches. Last but not least the program fosters the upgrading of the current eID systems with innovative solutions leading to higher trust and trustworthiness of overall on-line services. In particular the contribution to the science in implementing the specified work can be summarized as follows: Identified relevant generic and specific challenges related to cybersecurity and digital privacy in the respective critical domains/sectors of the current cyber space. Developed advanced holistic systems and innovative proof of concepts for managing cybersecurity and privacy risks in the respective critical domains/sectors. Providing advances in the state-of-the-art analysis of specific aspects of the respective critical domains/sectors addressed, such as yet unknown cyber threats, attacks and vulnerabilities. Provision of sound analysis of cascading effects of specific related cyber threats within the respective critical domains/sectors that are addressed. Improved cybersecurity information sharing and collaboration among stakeholders of the respective critical domains/sectors by upgrading the trust and trustworthiness. Developing methods for targeted and acceptable security management solutions addressing specificities of the respective critical domains/sectors addressed in the program with focus on eID systems and their integration in on-line services. Specifying new improved measures and methods of cybersecurity/privacy/personal data protection, provision of best practices in the respective critical domains/sectors addressed. Contributing advancement in the targeted and acceptable security management solutions addressing specificities of the respective critical domains/sectors, like the energy sector infrastructure and the eHealth system. Developing methods that trigger a fast adoption of cybersecurity/privacy/personal data protection best practices in the respective critical domains/sectors addressed e.g. micro-enterprises and finance institutions. Designing models for enhanced protection against emerging novel advanced threats in the respective critical sectors/domains addressed in the program. Improved security governance of the respective critical domains/sectors like eHealth and energy supply. Directions and models for developing strategic approach in business management for enabling sustainable coping with the changes in the emerging digital world.
Significance for the country
Trust and security are at the core of the EU Digital Single Market Strategy, while the fight against cybercrime is one of the three pillars of the European Agenda on Security. Slovenia as an EU member state is a part of the Digital Single Market Strategy and is intending to contribute to the efforts for building secure single market by implementing the European Agenda on Security. The program develops innovative solutions and services in digital security, privacy and personal data protection that open new market opportunities for the Slovenian companies and ensure a secure and trusted networked environment for the government agency and administration, businesses, individuals and smart things/cities as cybersecurity and privacy technologies significantly contribute to the strengthening the competitiveness of the Slovenian economic sector. The provision of trusted services and the use of enhanced eID systems applied in the cross-border operation of on-line services following as program outcomes will ensure the necessary trust and trustworthiness for flourishing the market opportunities. In Slovenia the highest number of economic subjects belong to the small and medium-sized enterprises and micro enterprises (SMEs&MEs). These subjects lack sufficient security awareness, as they do not have resources - both technical and human - to counter cyber risks. Hence they are an easier attack target compared to the large organizations. Provision of working solution by the program as answers to this challenge by considering that the cybersecurity is significantly complex and fast-evolving field will contribute to the importance of the economic role of these subjects in the national economy. The proposed program in general contributes to the reduced economic and social damage caused by harmful cyber-attacks and privacy incidents within these subjects but as well to the other subjects belonging to the national social infrastructure. In addition the program outcomes pave the way for a trustworthy environment that needs to be set in the on-going processes of the digital transformation in the Slovenian society.
