C3 : Security in 3D

SECURITYMADEIN.lu has been working for several years to strengthen cybersecurity in Luxembourg.In order to give businesses more protection, SECURITYMADEIN.LU is launching the Cybersecurity Competence Center (C3). 3 pillars will be deployed:

  1. Threat Intel
  2. Training
  3. Testing

The first aims to increase the collection of strategic data and information about ongoing threats to help businesses and organizations protect themselves. The knowledge and identification of threats are essential to differentiate between legitimate and malicious activities.

In the near future, the Malware Information Sharing Platform (MISP) and the risk management tool, MONARC, will be set-up in a way that reinforces user protection in real time.

The 2nd pillar aims to provide a more extensive catalogue of cybersecurity trainings in order to meet the diversity of the needs. It will also be able to use the resources of the 3rd pillar to improve and make the trainings even more concrete and realistic.

In this catalogue, the “Room 42 – Do[n’t] Panic” will be one of the key concepts around gaming and simulation. It will allow the employees of a company to face a cyber-attack in an immersive and playful environment, and in real time.

The 3rd pillar consists of offering a test space for the prototypes of new products. Metaphorically speaking, the aim is to set-up a flight simulator for the "cyber-pilots" of digital innovation ... More specifically, to facilitate the adoption of "Security by design" within new applications. All start-ups will benefit from an advantageous access to this infrastructure, in order to test their new products.
