“Cuban networks are daily impacted by thousands of malicious programs and denial of service attacks, known as DoS/DDoS, which generate a good amount of access requests to a server to collapse their processing possibilities,” Granma newspaper underlines.
These attacks affected several government websites and press media, and some of them were aimed at taking control of their databases to obtain valuable information.
The cyber-attacks against Cuba are also aimed at deconfiguring certain sites and hanging signs against the revolutionary process.
They try to damage the image of the country and exert political influence on the population, and something notorious is the level of coordination and organization of the attacks to distort the Cuban reality.
Cuba seeks to promote the creation of entities in the field of information security, training specialists, and constantly monitoring and analyzing cyber-attacks, due to appearing new ways of carrying them out.
It is vital – Granma points out – to evaluate the existing vulnerabilities in the network and those users who receive the services.
At the same time, creating a culture in the population for the safe and responsible use of information and communication technologies is another way to strengthen national cybersecurity.
