Digital Twins architectures and security capabilities: a Game-Changer for Cybersecurity, 26 April 2024, Webinar

The ECCC, supported by the European Cyber Security COmmunity project (ECCO), announces its new knowledge-sharing webinar focused on Digital Twins that will take place on 26 April 2024 at 14:00 – 15:00 CEST.

This upcoming knowledge sharing session, spearheaded by the ECCO Community Group on Road-Mapping, will delve into Digital Twins (DTs), a cutting-edge technology which is revolutionizing business models across the globe, offering unprecedented simulation and prediction capabilities tailored to every scenario and application context.

In the light of this technological innovation and its potential for multiple use cases, the webinar we’ll explore the untapped potential of DTs beyond their conventional use. We will dive into two key areas of interest:

  • Harnessing the power of DTs for the protection of critical systems.
  • Navigating the challenges of deploying this technology from a secure standpoint.

For both perspectives, the NIST cybersecurity framework has been widely considered as the guide, mapping out the necessary security measures and demonstrating how DTs can be utilised for protection purposes.

The webinar will also will also introduce the technological concept of Digital Twin and its application in some exciting use cases. Finally the webinar will look into the future challenges.


The virtual event will be held through Webex.
