Schep orde in versnipperd cyberonderzoek

Schep orde in versnipperd cyberonderzoekCyberdreigingen: we schrijven er veel over, maar weten maar weinig. Een nieuwe studie van het Den Haag Centrum voor Strategische Studies laat het beeld zien van zo’n 70 van de meest toonaangevende rapportages over cyberaanvallen uit 15 landen over de laatste paar jaar. Het toont een versnipperd landschap. Het aantal gevallen, de gebruikte methoden en definities, en de dreigingen die onderzocht worden, variëren sterk. Willen we wereldwijd beter kunnen inspelen op cyberaanvallen, dan moeten we duidelijke afspraken maken over methoden, definities en rapportage, en toewerken naar geharmoniseerde collectie en rapportage.
