The 7th edition of the international IoT Week will host over 200 sessions and activities to access the latest developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain: emerging technologies, security and privacy, sustainable development, industry and market evolution. The IoT Week is the leading conference on IoT research and emerging technologies. It is organized under the umbrella of the IoT Forum to promote international dialogue and cooperation for IoT innovation, as well as to discuss technical, societal and market issues related to the Internet of Things.

ANASTACIA project coordinator Stefano Bianchi (Softeco Sismat) will present the project’s methodological and technological approach in a dedicated panel on “IoT Risk Management” within the IoT Week 2017 “IoT Security & Privacy” track (Thursday Jun 8th – 16.15-18.00,

The main objective of the ANASTACIA project ( is to address cyber-security concerns by researching, developing and demonstrating a holistic solution enabling trust and security by-design for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on IoT and Cloud architectures.

The heterogeneous, distributed, and dynamically evolving nature of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on Internet of Things (IoT) and virtualised cloud architectures introduces new and unexpected risks that cannot be solved by current state-of-the-art security solutions.

For this, new paradigms and methods are required in order i) to build security into the ICT system at the outset, ii) to adapt to changing security conditions, iii) to reduce the need to fix flaws after deploying the system, and iv) to provide the assurance that the ICT system is secure and trustworthy at all times.

ANASTACIA will thus develop a trustworthy-by-design security framework which will address all the phases of the ICT Systems Development Lifecycle (SDL) and will be able to take autonomous decisions through the use of new networking technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and intelligent and dynamic security enforcement and monitoring methodologies and tools.

ANASTACIA has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement N° 731558 and from the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.
