October 7, 2022 


Turin, Italy & Virtually

During the event you will be:

  • informed about the CYRENE project, its overall objectives and approach,
  • learn about the challenges faced in the context of automotive supply chain services and how the CYRENE solution is planning to solve them (you can already get some background information reading our blog here), and
  • get updated about the latest achievements of the consortium.


CYRENE is a European project, funded under the Horizon 2020 Work Programme. It aims to enhance the security, privacy, resilience, accountability and trustworthiness of Supply Chains (SCs) through the provision of a novel and dynamic Conformity Assessment Process (CAP) that evaluates the security and resilience of supply chain services, the interconnected IT infrastructures composing these services and the individual devices that support the operations of the SCs. In particular, the proposed Conformity Assessment Process will support, at different levels, SCs security officers and operators to recognize, identify, model, and dynamically analyse cyber risks. Moreover, it will support forecasting, treatment and response to advanced persistent threats and handle daily cyber-security and privacy risks, incidents and data breaches.

Registration is free of charge but required in order to use the necessary remote facilitation tools. Please fill in the form below and we’ll forward you the invitation with all connection details.
