CYBER4DE: Cyber Rapid Response Toolbox for Defence Use
Rapid response to cyber-attacks is one of the main interests of European Defence as it strongly affects stability in Europe and outside Europe and wealth and safety of the society.
Launched under European Defence Industrial Development Programme in December 2021, the project “Cyber Rapid Response Toolbox for Defence Use” (CYBER4DE) takes on the challenge to develop an easily deployable, modular, and scalable cyber rapid response toolbox to manage cyber incidents in different complex national and international scenarios.
CYBER4DE stems from the needs of the project “Cyber Rapid Response Teams and Mutual Assistance in Cyber Security” under the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) framework, which seeks to ensure a higher level of cyber resilience and collective response to cyber incidents among the Union.
CYBER4DE aims to enhance processes and practices of Cyber Rapid Response Teams (CRRTs) for a faster uptake of the new tools and for increased effectiveness in the operating domain. Although fast forming CRRTs initiatives may provide necessary response to the emerging cyber threats, these teams can only operate in common enterprise environments, have limited capabilities for specialized systems, or are dedicated to working only in organizations’ internal networks.
The CYBER4DE project is supported by the Ministries of Defence of Lithuania, Estonia, France, Poland, and Romania. In terms of building requirements for the project, providing support during the production phase and finally accepting the cyber toolbox, the project management is led by the Ministry of National Defence of Lithuania.
