Advanced Cyber Defence Center


The Approach of ACDC:

ACDC aims to take down botnets through the elaboration of a European centre proposing a full set of services. The services are relayed through national support centres.

ACDC provides an end-to-end approach from detection to protection. ACDC will build on the data acquired through its European centre to create prevention strategies and improve the bawareness and adoption across users.

ACDC will provide tools and sensors to detect botnet related cyber-threats and mitigate cyber attacks on networks, web sites, end user computers and mobile devices.
