The Evolution of Cyber Threat. Cyber Security Trends in Romania
Cyber attacks have seen an upward trend, being considered by the World Economic Forum as the fifth major global concern for 2019. A major part of the criminal activity has shifted from physical space to cyberspace. From the perspective of CERT-RO’s specific activities and competences, 2018 saw an increase both in intensity and in the complexity of cyber-threatening modes, particularly, financial cyber-aggression. This motivation of cyber-aggression is and will continue to be one of the main factors that will determine cyber attackers to develop increasingly sophisticated attack techniques to harness all the opportunities that technology offers, to find new targets and exploit their vulnerabilities, even if it is thought to improve our daily lives.
