FORTIKA award and kick-off meeting

  • June 1, 2017

In June 2017, project coordinator, Information Technologies Institute, hosted the kick-off meeting of the FORTIKA project in the premises of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas in Thessaloniki, Greece.

FORTIKA is an EU funded project under Horizon 2020 (grant agreement No. 740690). The project started on the 1st of June 2017 and will last 3 years.

FORTIKA aims to (1) minimise the exposure of small and medium sized businesses to cyber security risks and threats, and (2) help them successfully respond to cyber security incidents, while relieving them from all unnecessary and costly efforts of identifying, acquiring and using the appropriate cyber security solutions.

The meeting was an exciting opportunity for consortium members to discuss the project and its aims from their perspectives, setting the grounds for the successful project implementation. The consortium developed a strong bond over a couple of days in Thessaloniki and is looking forward to their next meeting that will take place in Berlin, Germany in October 2017.FORTIKA project people
