Evalué à 6 Mds EUR, le marché de la sécurité informatique connaît depuis quelques années une croissance régulière, notamment suite à une prise de conscience des problèmes liés à la cybercriminalité et à une utilisation accrue des Smartphones, ainsi que des tablettes et des ordinateurs portables. Le coût de la cybercriminalité représenterait 34 Mds EUR par an pour les britanniques. Pendant les trois premiers mois de l’année 2011, plus de six millions de virus ont été détectés au Royaume-Uni. En effet, Le gouvernement attribuera 750 M EUR de financements à la sécurité pour les 4 prochaines années. Le blog de l'export UBIFRANCE : pour le développement international des TPE-PME
Nearly three-quarters of the people surveyed said that presidential candidates should make cybersecurity a priority, such as protection of government computer systems and critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, while 68% cited terrorism as a priority, according to the Unisys Security Index. Lieberman Research Group surveyed 1,005 US adults in February to compile the index. Around 37% of respondents said that they would prefer to use one or more biometric security procedures to protect information when they work remotely or conduct personal online transactions; 55% of respondents said they prefer complex passwords; 32% said they prefer simple passwords.

The Trust in Digital Life (TDL) community, formed by leading industry partners and institutes, considers trust as a priority prerequisite. Trustworthy ICT solutions must become a commodity enforced by citizens and law. The Trust in Digital Life community has capabilities to resolve the issues and will research, pilot and promote innovative trustworthy ICT environments and technologies. TDL community encourages the industry to develop innovative information and communication technologies, enabling consumers and enterprises to judge for themselves if their devices, applications and services are trustworthy enough to protect them from internet threats. Industry has the ambition to provide these technologies for an affordable price to the market. TDL | Trust in Digital Life - A Consortium focusing on TRUST for our Digital Life

The primary mission of the Unit "Trust and Security" (H4) of the European Commission's Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CONNECT) is to support and coordinate research for the development of trustworthy ICTs that respect citizens' rights and protect their privacy and personal data. The ambition is to coherently address security, trust and privacy from a technological, economic, legal and social perspective, in an effort to ensure innovation and economic growth in a society providing freedom and security for its citizens. Research priorities are strongly related to the development of the Future Internet and target: trustworthy network and service infrastructures, user-centric identity and privacy management and technologies for secure software development, trusted computing, cryptology and advanced biometrics. Support to interoperability and standardisation is given when appropriate, to strengthen the societal impact of the technology results. FP7 : ICT : Security : Home

Welcome to Aniketos | ANIKETOS Aniketos is a collaborative project funded under the EU 7th Research Framework Programme. It is aligned to the strategic objective 1.4 Secure, dependable and trusted infrastructures defined by the European Commission in the FP7 ICT Work Programme Call. The Future Internet will provide an environment in which a diverse range of services are offered by a diverse range of suppliers, and users are likely to unknowingly invoke underlying services in a dynamic and ad hoc manner. Moving from today’s static services, we will see service consumers that transparently mix and match service components depending on service availability, quality, price and security attributes.
