PUZZLE will implement a highly usable cybersecurity, privacy and data protection management marketplace targeted at SMEs&MEs. The PUZZLE will track the relationships among the cyber assets of each SME&ME, considering the available network, compute and storage infrastructure and use them to efficiently calculate individual, cumulative and propagated risks, as well as recommend and apply mitigation actions
Why do SMEs&MEs need cybersecurity? The majority of cyberattacks (86%) in SMEs&MEs are targeted, where financial gain (53%) and corporate espionage (47%) are the main motives. In spite of the current cyber threat landscape, 68% of SMEs&MEs have no systemic approach toward ensuring cybersecurity, 60% of them who were victims of cyber attacks did not recover and thus shut down within 6 months, while less than 3% have cyber insurance. According to Gartner’s predictions, 75% of public blockchains will suffer “privacy poisoning” soon.
