On Tuesday, in the closing conference of the project, the DIPI officials explained what this project consists in.
Thus, at present, the MAI's computer system has more than 100,000 users nationally, and a potential attack, favoured by the vulnerabilities of computer systems, would have a high speed of propagation, with the impact being felt by the entire virtual system and would lead to a serious disturbance in the activity of central and local public administration.
By implementing this project, named CERT-INT, a unit from the central level within the DIPI will be able to collect and analyze swiftly all information about possible problems in the virtual field, allowing identification and solving cybersecurity breaches within the MAI.
Basically, if a person tries to access unlawfully a MAI's computer system, including a database, or attempts to compromise a website of a structure that belongs to the MAI, the DIPI specialists will identify shortly this vulnerability, having also the necessary means to solve fast the cybersecurity breach.
The MAI cyberdefence system has two essential components: a defensive component, which monitors, investigates and responds to security incidents, and an offensive component, which will prevent security incidents by using some penetration tests and specific pro-active actions.
