Latvijas Mobilais Telefons has become a partner in SPARTA – European Union’s cyber-security enhancement project that includes 44 partners from 14 countries, as confirmed by LMT representative Elīna Lidere.

The company will secure an experimental 5G platform for the cyber-security solution, which will be created along with the project to help enhance EU cyber-security strategy, as reported by the company’s representative.

«Modern cyber-security solutions are no less important for security as protection of the country’s border. Every now and then we hear news about scandalous cases when cyber-criminals circumvent even the strongest security systems. This is why clever digital solutions play a more important role than ever before. LMT will contribute to the project as an ICT and 5G development and client service expert,» says LMT president Juris Binde.

During the project’s cyber-security solution testing process, LMT will secure mobile communications infrastructure and support network engineering support.

SPARTA project will search for solutions in four research programmes: society’s basic needs (healthcare), economics (energy, finance and transports), technologies (ICT and industry) and sovereignty (e-management, state administration). Participants of the project include scientific excellence, technological innovations and social sciences in aspects of cyber-security. Over the course of the project it is planned to restore EU countries’ approach to cyber security research, innovations, education and examinations on all levels – both academic field and industry.

SPARTA – Network Infrastructure Penetration Testing Tool – is financed by EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. Considering the emerging challenges of the 21st century, it is planned to develop Cybersecurity Research & Innovation Roadmap, this is why SPARTA offers a unique cooperation system.
