MOTIVATION

Social Media is used daily by many people to share thoughts, images, videos and personal information. Often users publicly share information without a real awareness, convinced that this information will only be visible to friends or direct contacts. Information published over the Social Media potentially can be used to gain knowledge about attitudes, habits of potential attack’s targets (companies or private users).

RESULTS

Dogana delivers a complete toolset to detect and prevent social-engineering cyber-attacks at 3 levels:

TECHNOLOGICAL. Develop an integrated tool chain to assist social vulnerability assessments and evolve on the existing tools

LEGAL. Supply a legal framework to assist enterprises to perform internally this type of assessments

EDUCATION. Study and experiment new awareness methodologies to improve the education of employees with the aim of a lasting and efficient training.

RISK MANAGMENT. Measure the risks consistently

The results of the project will be tested with the internal partners enrolled as end-users.
