EU-GUARDIAN – European framework and proofs-of-concept for the intelliGent aUtomAtion of cybeR Defence Incident mAnagemeNt.



•  Enhance the ability to detect, mitigate and respond to security challenges semi-automatically or automatically, achieving faster and more accurate incident prediction and detection systems.

•   Categorization of related incidents and data assessment to establish whether multiple problems share a common underlying cause.

•  Support cyber security and cyber defence related human operators, analysts, and decision-makers at all levels.

•  Contribute to an enhanced cyber situational awareness, improving contextual knowledge of the enterprises, processes, and decision-making where AI should be utilised.

•  Increased military infrastructure resilience and improved protection against advanced cyber threats.

•  Support the creation of fit-for-purpose proof-of-concept prototypes of an automated or semi-automated incident management and cyber defence system.

•  Reference systems and appropriate tests cases to generate training data and evaluate the efficacy of different solutions will be created, both with and without human operators interacting with the system.

•  Identify opportunities for long-term improvement, wide cross-border cooperation between legal entities, and foster better exploitation of the industrial potential of innovation, research, and technological development.

•  The whole process of analysis, response and execution will be explainable, and heavily oriented to contributing to the regulation and standardization of the achieved outcomes.

•  Achieving excellence, trust, and a boost in research and industrial capacity.

•  Ensure an appropriate ethical and legal framework based on the Union’s values and in line with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU.
