A couple of days ago I held a presentation at the Cyber Crime Conference in Rome about the strategies for thwarting Cybercrime. While preparing the slides I collected some material with which I prepared the following infographic dealing with the evolution of Cyber Crime.
The romantic times of phone phreaking are definitively gone and today the Cyber Crime is an organized industry with a complex ecosystem which generated in 2011, $ 388 billion in 24 countries. A value dangerously close to the value of global drug trafficking.
Scroll down the infographic and discover the HACK factor (Hacktivism, Availability, Cloud/Mobile and Know-How) which influences the rapid growth of the Cyber Crime Phenomena.

Yesterday, during the Italian Security Summit 2012, the Italian Clusit Association has unveiled the first Italian Cybercrime Report for which I acted as a contributor (in particular I compiled the section dedicated to the Italian Cyber Attacks), putting also at disposal my 2011 Cyber Attacks Timeline for the Report’s introduction.
This is a great result for our Security Community, not only because such a similar holistic work had never been compiled before in Italy, but also because it pinpoints the possible trends and scenarios for 2012 and hence provide guidelines useful to delineate security strategies for professionals and organizations.
Most of all, the Report has been enriched by data collected by the Italian Cyber Police. An unprecedented event in Italy that provides a real deep insight the Cybercrime impacts in everyday life as never done before in our country.
Said in few words, it worths a read, and even if, so far, it is in Italian, we are working for a short English Version.
In the meantime I provide you with an amusing preview. In compiling the report, Andrea Zapparoli Manzoni, a dear friend and most of all one of the report contributors, did a great job by cataloguing all the 406 international attacks that I collected in my 2011 timeline. I consequently decided to summarize the results of this huge work in the following Infographic. The result is quite impressive, isn’t it?
