The 1st SPIDER 5G Cyber Range workshop for EU CERT/CSIRTs took place virtually on Wednesday 21 April 2021, and was attended by more than 20 participants. Our partner FORTH, was the organizer and the host of this event while among the participants were representatives from organizations such as BU-CERT, CYPRUS NATIONAL CSIRT, HELLENIC CSIRT and the GR.NET CERT. This event’s aim was to establish operational connections with CERTs/CSIRTs, discuss, interchange information, present SPIDER’s tools and training material and receive feedback on the current technical status of the project.
To give more detail, within the scope of this workshop the SPIDER partners had the chance to present various topics from the project, such as a generic overview of SPIDER and its objectives (presentation delivered by our coordinator ERICSSON), SPIDER Architecture as a Cyber Range Service Platform (presented by UBITECH), SPIDER Modalities and Pilot Use Cases (presented by University of Piraeus), and SPIDER’s Cyber Risk Analysis Methods and Econometric Models (presented by CITY University of London). Furthermore, a live demo of the SPIDER Platform was given by our Technical Manager (UBITECH) who demonstrated the current status and the various functionalities of the SPIDER platform. Finally, the SPIDER consortium had the opportunity to answer questions regarding the platform and exchange opinions with the participants towards common interests and aims. It was agreed that a second part of the workshop will be organized in May in order to continue these discussions – STAY TUNED!
