6th SPEAR Plenary Meeting


Due to the COVID-19 emergency situation, the 6th plenary meeting of the SPEAR project took place virtually during 15 and 16 January 2021.

Towards the end of the project and the final evaluation by the end-users, the meeting was focused on the progress of deploying the SPEAR platform on each of the four pilots, namely, a) the VETS hydropower plant, b) the substation laboratory at Tecnalia, c) Both the Testing, Research and Standards Centre and the Lavrio Power Plant of PPC, and d) the smart home of CERTH. 

During each demonstration, the end-users performed cyberattacks against the industrial devices used in each pilot, and the SPEAR platform successfully detected these attacks and visualised the relevant security events. Finalising the SPEAR deployments in pilots, the final evaluation and user acceptance testing will follow in the next months.
