WHY CLASSIFY CYBER ATTACKS IS CONVENIENT

news

Over the past 10 years we analyzed and classified thousands of successful and public domain Cyber ​​attacks (for a total of over 12,000 attacks), investigating about 20,000 sources.

A remarkable effort in terms of time and commitment.

But why is it so important to analyze successful cyber attacks?

Here are the three main reasons:

REASON # 1: THREATS ARE NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYONE

The analysis and classification activity allows us to realize that different industry sectors and targets are affected by different types of attacks.

We often hear about Cybercrime or attack techniques such as Ransomware or Phishing.

But the truth is that not all types of victims are equally subject to these threats.

Being able to understand to what extent and to which threats you are most exposed is an advantage in terms of risk mitigation.

REASON #2: THERE IS NO SOLUTION VALID FOR EVERYONE

If different threats affect Cyber ​​attacks victims in different ways, it is evident that there cannot be a single universally defend solution.

Indeed, a manufacturing company, for example, will be more exposed to different types of attacks than a bank.

Understanding this difference and having the tools to find this information helps to elaborate more effective and targeted defense strategies.

This also allows to optimize Cyber ​​Security budgets that often turn out to be underestimated or poorly spent. Spend the entire budget on a large solution (hardware or software) that maybe protects your organization for only 20% of the threats to your sector, it would be a serious mistake.

The analysis of Cyber ​​attacks therefore helps to evaluate, data in hand, how to optimize Cyber ​​Security budgets to defend your company effectively and efficiently (also in economic terms).

REASON # 3: IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE FIELD

Finally, the analysis of successful Cyber ​​attacks allows us to photograph reality and understand which types of threats were able to overcome the defensive solutions already in place.

This can be helpful in figuring out which solutions have not worked or proved insufficient.

The comparison of the data year by year also allows us to highlight the trends and consequently optimize the defensive strategies, as well as to be able to carry out Cyber ​​Security Awareness activities in a more precise way.

Optimizing your Cyber ​​Security strategy is essential.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT: IT’S TIME FOR CYBER LADIES!

news

Women empowerment: it's time for Cyber Ladies!

Experts agree: to prevent cyber attacks, and to deal with them, you need the broad gaze of women.

But despite the guarantee of 100 percent employment, there are still few women in Cybersecurity. This is why the new training courses aim to convince girls

Unfortunately, girls tend to reject job offers that take them out of their “comfort zone”.

They stop at the first opportunity, because they think they are not competent.

It’s a pity: taking risks is the best way to grow, today the unexpected is normal. Furthermore, women specificity can be enhanced in this field.

Here you can find our CEO Sofia Scozzari interview on IoDonna of Corriere della Sera (italian only).
