VIS - The Vulnerability of Information System and its inter-sectorial, economic and social impacts

Contracting Party: European Commission - DG Justice Freedom Security

2008 - 2009


The VIS project aims at creating a methodology that evaluates the weight of Information Systems on the EU economy, considering in particular the dependence of production and service processes from ICT and the consequences of the ICT breakdowns. The goal of the research study is to measure the impact of ICT breakdowns in the information system, investigating the effects that occur in a firm, in the sector it belongs to, on other sectors and, therefore, on the economy in general.
