Continuity And Security for SMEs Active in Neutralizing Dangers and Risks affecting their Activities

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – in particular micro-enterprises – of the Business Services sector frequently face the challenge to identify business risks and threats at an early stage. Often, they lack the required knowledge that would help them build their necessary resistance to risks. This is where the EU project "CASSANDRA" comes into play.

About the project

The aim of the two-year project (2015-2017), which was funded as part of a "Strategic Partnership" of the EU programme "Erasmus+", is to improve the stability and resilience of SMEs through the use of three analytical tools.

These products are helping SMEs to develop a risk management system tailored to the needs of each company and at the same time strengthen their awareness of possible business risks and threats.

"CASSANDRA" concretely developed a Quick-Check, an Online Course and a Guide. Through their use, SMEs are able to analyze by themselves and efficiently their own business risks, and minimize or neutralize them through practical strategies.

The three products are imparting detailed knowledge in all areas of risk management, business continuity management and the development of an information security system. With the use of concrete recommendations for action, the stability of SMEs will be improved regarding their risks.
