What is CYBIAH and what is its mission?

CYBIAH, the Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence Hub, is an innovative initiative coordinated by Campus Cyber and located at the heart of La Défense. Its mission is to strengthen the cybersecurity of SMEs and local public administrations in Île-de-France by leveraging a consortium of major partners.

When and how did this CYBIAH project emerge?

CYBIAH is a project initiated and coordinated by Campus Cyber in January 2023 in response to the growing need to strengthen the cybersecurity of SMEs and local public administrations. The project was developed in collaboration with 10 other partners to create a robust and innovative ecosystem. This initiative also benefits from crucial co-financing from the European Union and the Île-de-France Region. This financial collaboration was essential to implement this ambitious project and meet urgent needs in digital security.

How are the funds from the European Union and the Île-de-France Region used to enhance the cybersecurity of SMEs and local public administrations within the CYBIAH project?

The European Union initiated the CYBIAH project and finances it with 3 million euros. The Île-de-France Region also funds this project with 2 million euros through the FEDER fund. These grants allow us to primarily create a regional impact by offering high-quality services without any remaining financial burden or at preferential rates. Additionally, these subsidies have enabled CYBIAH to establish itself as a reference hub in cybersecurity at the European level.

With the aim of enhancing the cybersecurity maturity of SMEs and local public administrations, European funding is mainly used to finance costs related to:

– Project management and coordination;
– Communication and dissemination;
– Cybersecurity training services;
– Networking and integration of the project into a national and European ecosystem;
– Cyber services within personalized paths;
– Long-term cybersecurity financing services.
