JCOP: Joint Cyber Security Operations Platform

About the project

JCOP is a prototypical implementation of Commission Recommendation (EU) 2017/1584 of 13 September 2017 on coordinated response to large-scale cybersecurity incidents and crises, and a model that can be applied to all EU Member States. In particular, the project develops a Joint Cybersecurity Operations Platform (JCOP) tailored to the needs of EU Member State authorities entrusted with cybersecurity. The platform, as per the EU Recommendation 2017/1584, will have the capacity for (i) sharing ​​threat situational awareness, (ii) coordinated incident response and (iii) preparedness.

JCOP will be deployed and validated through a Southeast Europe Coordinated Response Cluster (cross-border collaboration) that includes the national cybersecurity authorities of Greece (NCSA) and Cyprus (DSA). In addition, the Norwegian national security authority (Nasjonal sikrechtsmyndighet - NSM) will validate JCOP at a national level.

The Role of UiO

University of Oslo (UiO) supports the platform's development and is in charge of the standardization, capacity building and sustainable impact creation activities. In addition, UiO is responsible for integrating JCOP instances into the security operations centers of the authorities.
