Water infrastructures are essential for human society, life and health. They can be endangered by physical or cyber threats with severe societal consequences. To address this, the H2020 funded STOP-IT project brings together a strong team of 22 partners, including water utilities, industrial technology developers, high tech small and medium-sized enterprises and top research & development providers from all across Europe. Together the consortium develops solutions to the most pressing threats over the course of the next four years.
How do we do it?
The STOP-IT team identifies current and future risks and co-develops an all-hazards risk management framework (based on the EU ISO Risk Management Framework (ISO 31000:2009), for the physical and cyber protection of critical water infrastructures. Prevention, detection, response and mitigation of relevant risks at strategic, tactical and operational levels of planning will be taken into account to generate modular solutions (technologies, tools and guidelines) that will be embedded into an integrated, scalable, adaptable and modular software platform.
