The STOP-IT integrated platform will be scalable (scaling from small utilities to large ones), adaptable (including various modules addressing different needs, with expandability for future modules), and flexible (the water utility managers can decide how to use it and it will be usable by experts, novices, and even non-technical staff). It also will support strategic/tactical planning, real time operational decision making and post-action assessment for the key parts of the water infrastructure.
STOP-IT delivers high impact through the creation of hands-on training, tools and technologies, best practice guidelines, support for certification and standardization as well as by fostering market opportunities and leveraging an EU water technology multi-stakeholder network.
STOP-IT solutions consist of an integrated STOP-IT platform with modular components, such as:
Risk assessment and treatment framework
Secure wireless sensor communications module
Toolbox of technologies for securing IT and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)
Toolbox of technologies for protection against physical threats, such as coordinated network cameras, XACML Authorization Engine, human presence detection using WiFi signals, water quality monitoring technologies for the early detection and impact minimization of contamination events (intentional attacks) and applications to service employees and to central management systems
Cyber threat incident service
Real-time anomaly detection system
Public warning system – secure information exchange technologies
Enhanced visualization interface for water utilities
