The main goal of the MITIGATE project is to achieve a radical shift in risk management methodologies for the maritime sector towards an evidence-based Maritime Supply Chain Risk Assessment (g-MSRA) approach.
To this end, the project integrates, validates and commercially exploits an effective, collaborative, standards-based risk management system for ports’ Critical Information Infrastructures (CIIs). The system accounts for all threats arising from the global supply chain, including threats associated with port CII interdependencies and the associated cascading effects.
The framework of the project allows port operators to manage security in a holistic, integrated and cost-effective manner, while at the same time producing and sharing knowledge associated with the identification, assessment and quantification of the cascading effects of the port supply chain. Port operators can thus predict potential security incidents, as well as mitigating and minimizing the consequences of various different security threats and their cascading effects, employing an evidence-based cost-effective approach.
MITIGATE includes simulation models, which enable the generation of timely, accurate, objective, reliable, relevant and high-quality evidence, information, indicators, factors and parameters based on the multidimensional risks that have been analysed and evaluated.
