YAKSHA project launched!

The European Commission (EC) recently approved the H2020 project YAKSHA, which will reinforce European Union (EU) and Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) cooperation and build partnerships in the Cybersecurity domain.

The launch event of the project took place on January 10, 2018 in Porto, Portugal. The event included a high-level discussion on Cybersecurity and EU–ASEAN Cooperation in Research and Development. The event was attended by European and Southeast Asian leading STI institutions, H. E. the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to Portugal and representatives from the EC.

YAKSHA aims at reinforcing EU-ASEAN cooperation & building partnerships in the cybersecurity domain by developing a solution tailored to specific user and national needs, leveraging EU Know-How and local expertise. YAKSHA will develop and introduce the innovative concept of honeypots-as-a-service which will greatly enhance the process of gathering threat intelligence.

The project is scheduled to run from January 2018 until June 2020 and is coordinated by Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação (Portugal) and includes seven European partners. Inno TSD is responsible for all Communication and Dissemination aspects of the projects, including end-user interaction, website, newsletter and social media.
