PFS (IRT SystemX)

Ports play a key role in the French economy, in terms of goods transport: 74% of out-of-EU goods arrive on our territory via the main ports. It should be noted that a 54% increase in the goods handled in EU ports is expected by 2030. Maritime infrastructures are currently undergoing a digital transformation and have consequently become increasingly vulnerable. Once isolated, the control and command systems that regulate many critical infrastructures are now open to other information systems (IS) and the growing need for data feedback to the IS means that the isolation of industrial networks may no longer be feasible in the long term.

Launched in 2020 for a period of three years, the PFS project aims to develop methods and tools to increase the resilience of the ports and ships of the future against digital and/or physical attacks. This will result in the proposal of a generic solution for threat prevention and security supervision that will allow the validation of strategies aimed at enhancing the protection and resilience of maritime infrastructures.
