EDA’s CySAP project launched

15th January 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Spain, Germany and Italy have launched the European Defence Agency’s (EDA's) Cyber Defence Situation Awareness Package Rapid Research Prototype (CySAP-RRP) project, EDA announced on 11 January.

The CySAP-RRP project, led by Spain, is the first step of work to set up a full cyber situation awareness (CySA) operational capability for EU defence forces. The objectives of the project include essential research to assist military decision-makers in cyberspace and to set the basis of a C2 system for cyber operations. Under this project arrangement, results will be delivered using a spiral approach over the next 18 months.

EDA’s Project Team Cyber Defence identified the need for capabilities to enable military commanders at all operational levels to understand and manage the risk of cyber-attack. An important prerequisite is to provide situation awareness for the commander based on a general and specific threat landscape from which the risk of cyber-attack can be observed, understood and evaluated. The objective is for military commanders to have a clear understanding of the cyber threat landscape including system vulnerabilities and attack vectors and to equip them with the tools required to make informed decisions in order to manage cyber risks during the planning and conduct phases of an operation.

CySAP follows a modular approach which means that the adopted situation awareness capability architecture will influence additional cyber defence solutions to achieve interoperability. Other spirals are planned to further develop CySAP towards a final CySA capability.
