Cybersecurity Awareness and Knowledge Systemic High-level Application

MOTIVIAN participates in the YAKSHA European research project, which aims at reinforcing EU-ASEAN cooperation and building partnerships in the cybersecurity domain by developing a solution tailored to specific national needs leveraging EU know-how and local expertise.

YAKSHA will develop and introduce the innovative concept of honeypots-as-a-service which will greatly enhance the process of gathering threat intelligence.

It 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 secure global manufacturing supply chains, given its planned focus on IoT Security.

As part of the project, MOTIVIAN will develop the sandbox environments for trapping the malware and monitoring their actions. Specific focus will be made on IoT and ICS platforms that the end users will specify. The system will automate the procedures to deploy honeypots and collect the information from the penetrated systems.

The project is co-funded by the EU through the Horizon 2020 Programme and has a duration of 2.5 years. YAKSHA is being implemented by 13 entities from 10 countries (Greece, Portugal, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Finland, Spain, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand).
