Phishing or scam campaigns by cybercrime groups are becoming more sophisticated. This phenomenon of cyber attacks is a massive one.
According to the director general of the National Cyber Security Directorate (DNSC), Dan Cîmpean, quoted by Economica, is a campaign that tries to bring about a change in the way in which the awareness of these categories of users is done in the current way.
As you can see, as users we are constantly “bombarded” by phishing campaigns, scam campaigns, etc. which, in practice, are aimed at spreading deceptive, criminal activities on the part of cybercrime groups and which are becoming more and more sophisticated, in a very innovative way and for which we need to adapt the way we work in the online space. The phenomenon is a massive one, based on the data we have at the Directorate, based on the notifications we receive. It’s not just about 1, 2, 3 isolated cases. We are facing hundreds, maybe thousands of such cases, unfortunately many undeclared “, said Cîmpean.
These cyber attacks can be stopped. The head of DNSC said: “In order to be able to respond nationally, we rely on a campaign like ‘Online Security,’ but we rely more on you as users, and we hope that you will be able to use the information you collect in this campaign to better position yourself and activate those defenses when you use the internet. We all need to refresh our knowledge. “
The frequency of cyber attacks is high in our country
“Even I have done the tests on the platform a few times and I can say it with less pride that I did not get perfect scores. It is a challenge that we all have – authorities, users, banks, police colleagues, private partners – that we need to address together. We must succeed in being one of the countries in which cybercrime has the lowest success rate in the European Union “, Cîmpean also mentioned.
National security is threatened by cyber attacks more than ever. Here is the announcement made by SRI in this regard.
According to Cristian Chirteş, chairman of the Joint Standing Committee of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate for the exercise of parliamentary control over the activity of SRI, the political class must adopt legislation in the field of cyber security.
“I want to emphasize the importance of drafting legislation in the field of cybersecurity, legislation that today Romania unfortunately does not have and I think needs to be urgent, I am convinced that the cybersecurity law should be expedited, which is in final form and I call on policy makers to come to the Parliament with this law “, said Cristian Chirteş, quoted by Economica.
