Mitigation strategies to counteract cyber threats, taking into account information security, network security and end user education

Digital technologies and the Internet are the backbone of our society and economy. Information systems can be affected by incidents such as human mistakes, failures or malicious attacks that are becoming bigger, more frequent and more complex.

The potential risks go far beyond the perceived threats in everyday personal computing and online banking. These are challenges that cyber criminals are exploiting and so tackling the threat of attacks is of paramount importance.

Cybersecurity threats should not be viewed as problems that can be completely resolved, but rather as risks that must be managed and mitigated considering the fast evolution of ICT technology and its different modes of use.
