CYBER4DE delivers an easily deployable solution for managing cyber incidents

Rapid response to cyber-attacks is one of the main interests of European Defence as it strongly affects stability in Europe and outside Europe and wealth and safety of the society.


Launched in December 2021, under the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP), the project “Cyber Rapid Response Toolbox for Defence Use” (CYBER4DE) took on the challenge of developing an easily deployable, modular, and scalable solution for managing cyber incidents in different complex national and international scenarios.

On 8 May, the eleven consortium members concluded 30-months of work on the CYBER4DE project during the final meeting and qualification (acceptance) event hosted at the Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania. The meeting focused on the main topics developed within the CYBER4DE project and the results achieved.


During the meeting the Certificate of Acceptance of the CYBER4DE Toolbox was signed and awarded by the Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania. The Certificate confirms that the CYBER4DE Toolbox has undergone rigorous assessment and has demonstrated compliance with the defined functional requirements outlined for the project.


Vice-minister of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania Greta Monika Tučkutė emphasized the importance of defence cooperation between the private and public sectors: “As our cyber landscape evolves, defence collaboration is paramount. Our commitment to supporting businesses in contributing to cyber defence not only strengthens our security, but fosters innovation growth on a national scale,” says Greta Monika Tučkutė.




According to Robertas Petravičius, Cyber-security Programme Manager at BPTI and the coordinator of the CYBER4DE project, the CYBER4DE toolbox is a unique and universal solution that covers different advanced features. The toolbox concept is based on four principal parts: Workplace, Sensors, Back-Office, and Cloud Services. They provide specific functionalities for managing cyber incidents (detecting, investigating, and remedying hostile activities) and are integrated into a highly sophisticated, flexible, and scalable solution that is easily configurable and deployable to meet the specific circumstances of a wide range of deployed cyber crisis operations. State-of-the-art and open technologies, including artificial intelligence enhancements, will ensure the toolbox remains effective and upgradable over the years.

The CYBER4DE Toolbox underwent a thorough review to ensure it met all agreed-upon functional requirements, confirming its alignment with the project's technical specifications. A Technical Acceptance Board, composed of representatives designated by the Ministry of Defence (MoDs), rigorously evaluated the testing results from System Testing against the predetermined criteria in the Testing Plan. The Board verified that the CYBER4DE Toolbox met the technical standards outlined in the project's requirements. Additionally, all deliverables outlined in the qualification plan were formally reviewed and accepted after meticulous examination to ensure they met predetermined criteria and contributed effectively to the project's objectives.




CYBER4DE brought together a consortium of eleven beneficiaries from six EU countries, led by Baltic Institute of Advanced Technology (Lithuania): Airbus (France), Asseco Poland S.A. (Poland), ComCERT SA (Poland), CY4GATE S.p.A. (Italy), Infigo IS (Croatia), Leonardo S.p.A. (Italy), NRD Cyber Security (Lithuania), Poslovna inteligencija d.o.o. (Croatia), Thales (France), The Military Equipment and Technologies Research Agency (Romania).



The CYBER4DE is among five largest projects that received financing as a result of 2020 European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) call, grant agreement no. EDIDP-CSAMN-EDICT-2020-76-CYBER4DE.


EDIDP is a biannual programme (2019-2020) aiming at enhancing the competitiveness of the EU defence industry, it aims at supporting the efforts of the EU defence industry in the development of defence equipment and technologies through co-financing from the EU budget.


EDIDP is part of the European Defence Fund, launched by the Commission in June 2017, to help Member States spend money more efficiently, reduce duplications, and get better value for money by coordinating, supplementing and amplifying national investments in defence research and development activities.
