Cyber-attacks are serious threats for organizations and entire nations. The project results enable political decision makers to implement specific and Austrian data protection legislation compliant measures to protect the Austrian ICT infrastructure and the connected economic, governmental, and societal development

Cyber-attacks are serious threats for organizations and entire nations. The protection of the critical infrastructure in Austria depends on (i) the IT awareness, and (ii) the adequate implementation of IT security measures in private, commercial, and governmental environments. This KIRAS project aims at: (i) measuring the IT awareness and already implemented IT security measures at Austrian citizens, companies, and governmental institutions, (ii) the development of a catalog of measures to raise the national IT awareness level and enforce national IT security measures, and (iii) evaluating the catalog of measures regarding the Austrian data protection legislation. The project results enable political decision makers to implement specific and Austrian data protection legislation compliant measures (e.g., national ICT security awareness raising programs, additional funding of relevant research programs or implementation of concrete technological countermeasures) to protect the Austrian ICT infrastructure and the connected economic, governmental, and societal development.
