The deliverable will report on the analysis of challenges and opportunities derived from sector-specific use cases, and will contribute to the development of the ECHO multi-sector risk assessment framework. The document will focus on horizontal technologies and cybersecurity in selected critical sectors, as well as addressing inter-sector dependencies and transversal security aspects. The developed framework will provide a foundational approach for organisations to assess their current security standing and to develop a roadmap to investments in technological advancements, training and process innovations aimed to protect their assets against cyber-attacks.
