A Close Analysis 2019 Cyber Threat Groups in E.Africa

We usually give out some of our research on same page shared here earlier.
Full link with several documents can be found on www.onnetservices.io/Public

On that page you can click blog to get detailed public Cyber Threat
Intelligence. Several threat groups heists and their Tactics, Techniques
and Procedures have been ďOutedĒ there making some Financial Institutes
harder to penetrate. And since most of them are targets of opportunity,
those who have followed with Local CTI have become harder to hit.

We are trying to promote sharing, coz when you tell your neighbor how the
thieves came to your household you as the next victim will be ready and you
will cover the tactics and tradecraft used by the same thugs and stop them
cold.
