Cyber Security for SMEs, local public administration and Individuals
Description of call
"Cyber Security for SMEs, local public administration and Individuals"

Europe's SMEs, local public administration and citizens face particular challenges in addressing basic cyber security threats. In the case of SMEs and local public administration, their size and budgetary constraints often precludes them from putting in place highly granular organisational structures, retaining dedicated information security personnel and making significant investments in cybersecurity products or services. Whether addressing SMEs, local public administrations or individuals, few cyber security solutions have been designed with the human factor in mind and therefore present severe limitations in their usability which hampers proper decision making and adequate usage. Proposals should develop innovative solutions with a high degree of usability and automation while ensuring that the end-users retain an adequate degree of cyber situational awareness and control.
