Cybercrime is rising at an exponential rate and causing unprecedented economic loss, social unrest and harm. The existence of hacking tools as a service on the dark web has made cybercrime very accessible to unsophisticated and sometimes technically unsavvy hackers. The first step in tackling cybercriminality, however, is to understand the human drivers behind cybercrime, especially the drivers for young people.
The CC-DRIVER project aims to examine such drivers behind cybercriminality across the European Union (EU), emphasising the factors that lead young people to cybercrime, as well as cybercrime-as-a-service.
Part of this project is the development of a Vulnerability Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that can help Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) protect themselves from cybercriminals by embarking on cybersecurity defences, organisational measures, cost-benefit considerations and awareness of fundamental rights such as the rights to privacy, protection of personal data and the free movement of persons.
The self-assessment questionnaire is intended to provide SMEs and CSOs with a comprehensive report on their current security posture and recommendations on how to strengthen their security posture.
Find out more about the self-assessment questionnaire in our latest (4th) press release available in all consortium languages: English, German, Greek, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Romanian, and Finnish!
