Nowadays the threats are moving from the physical dimension to the Fifth dimension of Warfare: the Cyber Warfare. Governmental and private institutions are suffering the increased exposure to cyber espionage. Indeed, criminal organizations have the aim to extract essential information either to trigger a cyber-attack or an information warfare. Furthermore, the most dangerous threat that is affecting the human psychological side is the so-called propaganda, which deliberately uses Social Media and Fake news. Propaganda affects the national politics, which in turn can influence public opinion.
MEDUSA® allows to understand the digital framework, to locate possible threats and to identify potential interactions that might represent a future risk for the country.
Several agencies at international level are using the platform not only to identify cyber threat but also to spread counter-narratives that mitigate the enemy propaganda. MEDUSA® enables Defense Institution to monitor the Social Media, Web, Dark Web and Forums, transforming the huge amount of public data into usable information to react to the continuous threats coming from the Cyber Warfare.
The web, a never-ending flow of information and data, is currently the place where criminal activities thrive. This is the arena in which Law Enforcement Agencies operate to identify and fight criminal organizations. Illegal activities are planned, organized, and carried out on all the available channels on the Web, including Social Networks, Dark Web, and Forums. Most of the time, precious data are publicly available, although hard to detect and analyze.
MEDUSA® is the must-have platform to understand those phenomena and to harvest useful information for the analysis. This is the only way to deal with the web vastness and pinpoint the target.
Traditional investigative tools, like data gathering through Lawful Interception, are often not enough. The terrorism challenges and the cyber threats are imposing a greater attention on Social Media, Web, Dark Web and Forums where a criminal can easily hide their malicious activities behind fake identities.
MEDUSA®, through its Avatar Management Module, enables intelligence department to perform under cover operations to engage and discover more information about most complicated targets.
