On Tuesday, May 26, we invited GLL members & friends working in the field of security worldwide to share their knowledge about a shadow behind our screens that is not visible but even more active since the start of pandemic. The panelists represented the variety of angles to study security and develop sustainable resilience.
To bring some clarity to cyber security from every day – personal and business – perspective, first of all, it shall be admitted that information on cyber security is very confusing and click bite based, and it is hard to say if the increased density of information is related to more activities or sharper eyes on this issue.
In order to get the context of obvious increase in cyber activity, lets start from understanding of simple things – origin of cyber attacks. They all are originated from humans rather than plain technology and have three major driving causes:
to earn money deploying online hacks instead of direct criminal activity,
to push through a certain message and create disturbance, or
to represent a certain ideology / country / regime and carry out a predefined agenda.
