ECHO is organising a 2-hours Workshop on cybersecurity software dedicated to server protection





Date: 19 April 2022 at 10:00 CET

Location: ONLINE, MS Teams

The application is closed!

Who are we looking for?

  • Cybersecurity, information and ICT security specialists;
  • Professionals who are using server applications daily (e.g data management);
  • Students and IT enthusiasts

Course fee: free of charge

Focus of the programme 

Server applications are widely used around the globe for connecting ICT services and sharing information between server-based and client-based applications. From surfing on internet to managing power plants, server-client structure is one of the main ICT communication forms. Severs have the ability to store an enormous quantity of data and make them usable on-demand by many clients at the same time. The connectivity and scalability of those communications make them vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Installing antivirus software is not enough to counter the cyber threats.  

Alongside the Federated Cyber Range (E-FCR) and Early Warning System (E-EWS), the ECHO project has developed a set of software prototypes that address a large variety of cybersecurity issues.  

We cordially invite you to participate in the first ECHO workshop "Server and Cyber threats". It will introduce the participants with a combination of tools for secure exchange of information, identification of vulnerabilities in complex systems, and network-based intrusion detection. The ECHO team will perform a cyber-penetration against one server of a hospital to check its reliability and suggest to the system designer a more secure configuration of the server infrastructure. Moreover, a software which is able to detect cyber intrusions on the network layer will be tested during the demonstration. 

Here is the timetable of the workshop:

10:00 – 10:05    Opening

10:06 – 10:20    General ECHO project presentation - focus on prototypes 

10:21 – 10:30      SISP presentation 

10:31 – 10:40      PenTest presentation 

10:41 – 10:50      SNORT presentation 

10:51 – 11:00      SISP solo [demo] 

11:01 – 11:15         PenTest attack on a server [demo] 

11:16 – 11:30        PenTest attack on a server equipped with SNORT [demo] 

11:30 – 11:40     Last round of questions
