CyberSecurity Awareness and Knowledge Systemic High-level Application

The project «YAKSHA – Cybersecurity Awareness and Knowledge Systemic High-level Application», funded under the European Union´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, will reinforce European Union (EU) and Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) cooperation and build partnerships in the Cybersecurity domain by developing a solution tailored to specific users and national needs, leveraging EU Know-How and expertise.

YAKSHA aims at reinforcing cooperation and building partnerships by developing a cybersecurity solution tailored to specific national needs leveraging EU Know-How and local knowledge. The project will enhance cybersecurity readiness levels for its end users, help better prevent cyber-attacks, reduce cyber risks and better govern the whole cybersecurity process. YAKSHA is ideally positioned to help secure the global manufacturing supply chains, given its focus on IoT Security.

The EU-ASEAN cooperation during and after the YAKSHA project will also help mitigate some of the weaknesses identified in the cybersecurity ecosystem by, for instance, the CONNECT2SEA EU project (ended in 2016). It will build a network of partners ASEAN-wide helping the lack of networking activities and regional cohesiveness; the certification scheme that will be developed by YAKSHA will help relieve the skill gap and the lack of cybersecurity experts and innovators; its common architecture will address the lack of a common approach to cyber threats.

A sustainable business model developed during the project will allow partners and other interested actors to adopt the technology, generate value, and foster cooperation even beyond the duration of the project.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.
