ECHO project – The COVID-19 Hackers Mind-set
MODENA, 15/04/2020 – The COVID-19 pandemic has led not only to serious health and medical issues, but also to a huge increase in terms of cyberattacks. In order to face the escalation of such phenomenon, the ECHO network of cybersecurity centres joined forces to enhance its COVID-19 Cyber Defence Alliance. The combined effort of experts from 15 EU countries – including Zanasi & Partners – led to the drafting of a whitepaper, showing how this pandemic offers criminals the opportunity to target, through traditional attack techniques, a greater number of potential victims, resulting from the massive increase in companies and employees working from home, as well as children and young people who use computer for school and university education.
