The objective of the Cyber4gr.0 project is to carry out a technical feasibility study to analyze the application of the Cybersecurity Seal in the field of Industry 4.0 in general and in the Agro-Food sector in particular, as well as the feasibility study of awarding the Seal in digital mode using BlockChain technology to guarantee its free consultation, as well as its inviolability and immutability.

The massive digitalization of production processes in Industry 4.0 allows them to be more efficient and competitive, but also increases the threats. The degree of complexity of the organizations involved is greater, and in order to analyze the application of the Seal to Industry 4.0, we considered conducting a feasibility study that would allow us to evaluate the scope of the new initiative, as well as validate this proof of concept in a real industrial environment.

The IEA for Cybersecurity has developed a Cybersecurity Seal for organizations in general. But from the Industry 4.0 there is a business demand to ensure their production processes, knowing what technical measures and procedures have to be implemented to have their assets protected and / or out of risk.

The typology of the organizations involved in the Connected Industry makes it very important to previously analyze the security requirements applicable to this sector and prevents us from applying the Reference directly, unlike other sectors. Its peculiarities require a previous analysis to adjust the new Seal to the industrial environment. The study will allow us to analyze the possibilities of success within a real industrial environment and will help us in the final decision making.
