Making SMEs more cyber-resilient

The project will use its tools and cyber range demos to train SMEs/MEs to identify their top threats and recognise and address them with greater confidence. Results will be validated by SME/ME in four critical sectors.

The developed toolkit will consist of:

Offline risk modelling tools

to support ISO 27005 risk analysis and privacy and data protection ‘by design’

Online cyber security risk monitoring

based on collaborative security intelligence and event management (SIEM) tool

Affordable and easy-to-use services

to guarantee the security and integrity of data.

Incident reporting and security intelligence sharing

supported by a secure, privacy-aware blockchain framework


Cyberkit4SME will contribute to create a trustworthy EU digital environment benefitting all economic and social actors by:


SMEs and MEs to become strong links in the cyber security chain underpinning the EU digital environment;


the security of SME/ME services, data and infrastructures;


security, privacy and personal data protection;


the damage caused by cyber attacks and data protection breaches.
