Today, attackers are using more sophisticated technologies, making existing add-on security solutions obsolete or insufficient, and the number of stakeholders involved both human and machines is always increasing. Thus, design and embedding of new security mechanisms directly into the systems is needed to drastically increase reliability and security levels, and provide higher levels of resilience. 

To make the current situation even more challenging, the global financial crisis has imposed unprecedented budgetary restrictions to both the public and private sectors. This means that any new security solution must be both technically efficient and financially cost-effective, facilitating the protection of previous investments and the flexible incremental evolution of the security systems protecting European CI. 

To tackle these challenges, PRECYSE (Prevention, protection and REaction to CYber attackS to critical infrastructures) will define, develop and validate a methodology, an architecture and a set of technologies and tools to improve by design the security, reliability and resilience of the ICT systems supporting the Critical Infrastructures (CI).
