Academic Security Operations Center

Austrian universities and academic institutions must face the cybersecurity challenges that arise, on the one hand, from real threats from outside and, on the other hand, from existing or expected regulations or laws.

In order to support universities in this task, to make optimal use of synergy effects and to significantly increase cybersecurity, the long-term plan is to establish an academic Security Operations Center (SOC) via ACOmarket, which will provide ACOnet participants with central services for proactive measures, detection of attacks and offers countermeasures. Universities and their ZIDs as end users thus have the opportunity to benefit from tried and tested services, experiences and resources to strengthen their cybersecurity without having to laboriously set it up again.
