CC-DRIVER feat. FORTH
CC-DRIVER is proud to inform the "Psychosocial Approach to Cyber Threat Intelligence", co-authored by Prof Nineta Polemi, external expert to our project partner FORTH, and published in the International Journal of Chaotic Computing.
Cyber attackers continuously show new levels of intention by performing more sophisticated attacks on networks and important infrastructures (e.g., hospitals). This is an urgent situation calling for a swift improvement for cyber defenders. Hence, a paradigm shift is necessary to ameliorate the effectiveness of current practices. Behavioural, social and psychological related information about the attackers is considered in this paper, important elements of the Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) that improve cyber defense practices. The aims of this paper are to firstly provide a review of relevant behavioural and social theories and models that can be used for better capturing the attackers’ characteristics and then to utilize them by giving insights on more realistic security measurements.
