Sparta consortium addresses how we tackle cyber security

Paris, France

The Sparta consortium, led by CEA and supported by Europe's H2020 programme, assembles a balanced set of 44 players from 14 EU Member States, including ANSSI, Institut Mines-Télécom, Inria, Thales, and Yeswehack for France, at the intersection of scientific excellence, technological innovation, and societal sciences in cyber security.

Together, along with Sparta Associates, they aim at re-imagining the way cyber security research, innovation, and training are performed in Europe across domains and expertise, from foundations to applications, in academia and industry.

Thales, one of the consortium’s original founders, will share with the consortium its 40 years of expertise, focusing on two objectives: the technical analysis of cyber attacks and the development of AI-based secure systems.

To help companies and organisations appreciate the IT threat and better protect themselves, Thales aims at developing European capabilities in cyber threat intelligence and at facilitating the safe sharing and usage of this knowledge.

Thales will also bring its long-standing experience in the development of secure systems based on a trusted and explainable AI. By bringing together its cyber expertise and its knowledge of hackers’ modus operandi, Thales will also be able to simulate new AI-based attacks to learn how to react and protect the ecosystem.
