CyberSecurity Optimization and Training for Enhanced Resilience in finance project

Earlier this year the ‘CyberSecurity Optimization and Training for Enhanced Resilience in finance’ (SOTER) has come to an end.

  • Background to the SOTER project

SOTER was a project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme focused on researching and developing a technology platform coupled with a user training methodology and manual to enhance cybersecurity resilience within organisations, targeting the financial services sector. The main objective of the project was to develop a Digital Onboarding Platform (DOP) incorporating biometric identification and authentication technology.

  • Spark’s Role

Spark took part in the independent Ethics Advisory Board (EAB) of the project. Engagement with the EAB ensured that all project activities complied with good practice. Furthermore, the board was also responsible for matters relating to the legal aspects of ethics, privacy and data protection.
