Targeted Threats to Civil Society Dataset
3
AuthorLennart Maschmeyer, PhD Candidate, University of Toronto

MotiveThis project highlights an understudied aspect of cyber conflict, targeted digital threats to civil society. Civil Society Organizations are routinely targeted by the same advanced threat actors as states and large organizations, but rarely receive the same attention in media reports or research. Consequently, there is a lack of comprehensive data on this issue. This dataset aims to improve this situation by tracking threats to civil society in the best available source of comprehensive data: public reporting by the infosec industry.
5
DataSince the aim is comprehensiveness, data is collected from all available public reporting by the infosec industry. Inclusion criteria for reports are threefold: 1) they must be public, 2) they must concern targeted threats and 3) they were published by an infosec firm.

FundingThis project was made possible by a generous grant by Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
