Cyber-attacks represent a serious threat to public authorities and its agencies are regularly targeted by hackers. The public sector as a whole collects lots of data on its citizens but that data is often kept on vulnerable systems. Especially for Local Public Administrations (LPAs), protection against cyber-attacks is an issue due to outdated technologies and budget constraints. Furthermore, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) poses many constraints/limitations on the data usage when “special type of data” is processed. In this paper the approach of the EU project COMPACT (H2020) is presented highlighting the solutions used to guarantee the data privacy during the real time monitoring performed by the COMPACT’s security tools.
