The report released by the Cybersecurity Research Group and Policy Institute at Kings College in London stated that naming and shaming the enterprises affected by cybersecurity breach will improve their defense and help combat cybercrime. According to the recent report by the government stated that out of every 10 enterprises 4 of them happen to be affected by cyber security breach during 2017 to 2018 period.
The report also said that the public should have knowledge of all the steps taken by the enterprises to prevent such attacks in the future. Naming the enterprises that are affected by the cyber-attacks can initiate them to take actions on cybersecurity issues.
The Cyber Security Research Group and King’s College in London bring the security experts from various groups together from the intelligence community, public policy, informatics, strategic studies, and international studies. Many experts also urged the community of enterprises and organizations to adopt the regulations included in the Active Cyber Defense (ACD) developed by the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC).
The report has urged for the enterprises to adopt the ACD developed regulations. There has been a significant fall in the number of phishing sites that pose as government websites to steal personal information after ACD adoption. ACD has been a huge success in reducing the cyber threats and also protecting the government agencies from the cybercriminals.
Tim Stevens, convenor of Cyber Security Research group at Kings College in London said in a statement that ACD has been able to protect the public sector organizations legally, efficiently and cheaply. Implementing the Defense technology will create no significant technical obstacles for the enterprises. Currently, many private enterprises are developing similar technology on similar lines.
