In the ever-changing global world of today, cyber-attacks have become a considerable threat in professional and personal lives. Especially when professional industrial institutions are hit, the damage caused can be catastrophic from a human life and financial point of view.
The most common attacks have a spear-phishing nature and have its origin in the IT environment. The cause behind successful attacks can be found in:

- Remote technician access;
- And every day internet connections.
