Goals that require resolution:
- disinformation: the role of fake news has never been so evident as in the last two years, where democratic elections all over the world were perhaps decisively influenced by fake social accounts with the task of disseminating false information built ad hoc to guide the vote of large sections of the population towards the candidate most liked by the attacker on duty (or whoever hired him);
- online radicalization: the network, and in particular the dark web, is the fulcrum of the new jihadist propaganda as it allows terrorist cells to communicate, coordinate and conduct their activities even in the absence of a central command;
- interruption of essential services: reason why the cyber protection of critical infrastructures has become the subject of the so-called NIS Directive, which imposes more stringent security obligations on operators of essential services, obligations to report cyber incidents and strengthens cooperation at national and EU level;
- industrial espionage: it is well known that some states have assumed the theft of corporate know-how from more advanced countries as a real strategic objective.
One of the attacks aimed at companies and therefore potentially at cloud systems is the Advanced Persistent Threat or APT, the main criticalities in protecting companies from this attack are essentially two:
- The first is the high damage they can cause, further aggravated by the high level of effectiveness that they usually manage to achieve.
- The second is the difficulty encountered by more traditional protection solutions in effectively countering them.
