WELCOME to DOGANA, the
ADVANCED SOCIAL ENGINEERING AND VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK
PROJECT FUNDED BY THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION UNDER THE HORIZON 2020 WORK PROGRAMME, WITHIN THE "H2020-EU.3.7.
What is DOGANA?
The advent of Social Networks has made both companies and public bodies tremendously exposed to the so-called Social Engineering 2.0, and thus prone to targeted cyber-attacks. Unfortunately, there is currently no solution available on the market that allows neither the comprehensive assessment of Social Vulnerabilities nor the management and reduction of the associated risk. DOGANA aims to fill this gap by developing a framework that delivers "aDvanced sOcial enGineering And vulNerability Assessment".
The underlying concept of DOGANA is that Social Vulnerabilities Assessments (SVAs), when regularly performed with the help of an efficient framework, help deploy effective mitigation strategies and lead to reducing the risk created by modern Social Engineering 2.0 attack techniques. Two relevant features of the proposed framework are:
- The presence of the "awareness" component within the framework as the cornerstone of the mitigation activities;
- The legal compliance by design of the whole framework, that will be ensured by a partner and a work package explicitly devoted to this task.
Moreover, the outcomes of the project are also expected to provide a solid basis to revise the insurance models for cyber-attacks related risks, thanks to the involvement of 2 strong DOGANA partners in this area of activity. More information? Visit the DOGANA website.
