The success of a digital solution does not depend only on the product itself.

Digital water services are expected to be: safe, trustworthy, cyber secure, and to safeguard data protection and privacy.


Cyber-secure flow of information and interoperability of DWC will ensure the interoperability, cybersecurity, and resiliency of the developed digital solutions.

Therefore, DWC will map the flow of information, identify cyber-threats linked with the implementation of DWC solutions in existing systems, and propose solutions to reduce cyber risks at strategic, tactical and operational levels promoting their resiliency against threats. will also develop:

  • a reference ontology,
  • a common framework for the explicit contextualisation of the knowledge included in DWC value chains,
  • and a semantic interoperability middleware to data exchange, based on the ontology developed.

The link between the cyber-secure flow of information and interoperability component of as well as the development of digital solutions will be established by means of Community of Practices.
