mnemonic security podcast

For this episode, we’re welcoming Frank Fransen, Senior Scientist - Cyber Security, and Reinder Wolthuis, Senior Consultant and Program Manager - Cyber Security, from the Dutch not for profit research and consultancy organisation, TNO.

They joined Robby to talk about the SOCCRATES research project, where TNO, mnemonic and seven other European organisations are combining efforts to build a platform for security operations centres (SOCs) and incident response teams, to help them be more efficient, better detect attacks, and make the correct decisions on how to handle them.

The research project is part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program (https://www.soccrates.eu/), and aim is to produce a platform that will be as open-source as possible.

During their conversation, Frank and Reinder share why they saw the need for a platform like this, what it’s like to coordinate a project between public and private organisations, different expertise fields and across countries borders, and what the plan is for the upcoming pilot.
