D8.6 Communication Plan, final version

This document is the final version of the Communication Plan, covering the actions and impact for the period May 2016 to May 2017 and the plans for the last 6 months of the project (June-November 2017) as part of an all-partner commitment to communicating WISER and disseminating its results to the diverse audiences targeted.
This plan is now the focus of WP8 based on three pillars namely a complete product range for major marketing campaigns, portability to other verticals for verification (Manufacturing, Transportation, ICT, Healthcare and connected devices, Public Administrations) in addition to a wide pool of SMEs that also but not only operate in these verticals and a business model to be tested.

The WISER project at a glance

This presentation was held by Antonio Alvarez Romero (ATOS) during the 1st CIPSEC Workshop in Vilanova i La Geltrú (Spain) on 14 June 2017.
The presentation gives an overview of the WISER project and shows how the CyberWISER Light, CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus are different from the other cybersecurity services present in the market today.

WISER: Helping EU firms get smart about cyber security

The presentation focus on cyber risk management from a business point of view by considering all the business implications of a breach, from business interruption to reputational damage.

Cyber security - Ensuring business is ready for the 21st century

The IoD report, "Cyber security: Ensuring business is ready for the 21st century" supported by Barclays, shows that despite a number of high-profile cyber-attacks over the last year, more than a third (37%) of IoD members lead or work in organisations without a formal cyber security strategy, and worse still, in the event cybercrime was to hit their business, 40% would not know who to report it to.

Gaps in NIS standardisation

The aim of the study is to provide a mapping of the technical requirements of the NIS Directive to existing standards, to identify gaps and overlaps in related standardisation and provide recommendations for the future work in this area.

The report identifies a relatively small number of gaps and areas of overlap in standardisation where there is no clear best practice to be adopted partly due to the diversity of the current standardisation ecosystem. This allows for several recommendations:

Cyber threat to UK business - NCSC & NSA report

In their first joint report, the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), say that cyber crime is becoming more aggressive.

The rise of Internet of Things (IoT) devices gives attackers more opportunity. Consumer goods and industrial systems combined with the ever increasing commercial footprint online provides threat actors with more attack vectors than ever before.

Cisco Report Reveals Business Impact of Cyber Security

According to the CISCO 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report, over 20% of organizations hit by data breaches last year experienced lost revenue, customers, missed or lost business opportunities.

The report revealed the potential financial impact of attacks on businesses, from enterprises to SMBs.

BRC Retail Crime Survey 2016

The BRC’s 2016 Retail Crime Survey revealed that 53% of all fraud in the industry comes from cyber-enabled incidents, amounting to estimated losses of £100 million.

In particular, examples of cyber-crimes include phishing, theft of consumer data, doxing and social engineering.
