Proactive protection against phishing-based ransomware

Project description

Every year, millions of users fall victim to malware threats in various ways. The VESTA project aims to develop a European cybersecurity system to proactively protect systems against ransomware attacks. It combines multiple techniques such as AI/ML, data & knowledge extraction, anti-phishing, human behaviour analysis and sandboxing to build a multilayer ransomware attack mitigation platform capable of preventing, defending and remediating such attacks. Moreover, VESTA may also tackle the challenges related to the multi-language nature of phishing emails via collaboration between partners from different countries.
