Internet informs, entertains and connects us. It is the backbone of the global economy.

As our online transactions contain valuable data, they become a huge target for online attacks, and this not just by ordinary thieves, but by sophisticated cyber criminals. Hereby, 80% of cyber-attacks come from organizations, which are well-organized and have an extensive underground network (called ‘The Dark Web’). More than that, these organizations have tools, data and expertise.

As cybercrime is costing us around $445 billion a year, it is necessary to be collaborating within a safe and social community, which shares indicators of emerging cyber threats. This can help security professionals to quickly prevent malicious attacks, patch system vulnerabilities and educate employees.
