Kálmán Hadarics, University of Dunaújváros


In the 21st century online services became standard way to handle our affairs every day. The digital revolution and usage of smart devices made possible the existence of new type of cybersecurity threats. The malware distribution and their impact are constantly changing. The primary goal of cybersecurity attacks is catching sensitive data and business benefit. Instead of hobby hacking well organized cybercrime groups carry out the most offense. Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) must handle security incidents for e-Government information systems appropriately. This is extremely important if we want to mitigate the impact of a cybersecurity threat. In this paper, I will examine the available statistical data and reports of Government Incident Response Team of Hungary. Analyzing this information will point out what are the new trends of threats and malware. This paper also presents the findings gained from processed data.
