Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) have increased exponentially in recent years, as have concerns about cybersecurity. The IRIS project will address the challenges of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems based on IoT and AI through a collaborative approach centered on security incident response teams (CERTs / CSIRTs). Specifically, the project equips CERTs / CSIRTs with a state-of-the-art incident response toolkit to assess, detect, respond and share information on threats and vulnerabilities of IoT and AI-based ICT systems.
The project will establish the first dedicated online training and cyber exercises to prepare CERTs / CSIRTs to collaboratively protect critical infrastructure and systems against international AI and IoT threats. Pilot demonstrators will be conducted in Helsinki, Tallinn and Barcelona.
