Project’s aim
The advent of Social Networks has made both companies and public bodies tremendously exposed to the so-called Social Engineering 2.0, defined as IT-based psychological manipulation of employees into performing actions or divulging confidential information.

DOGANA aims at introducing into the market the first comprehensive solution for 1) assessing organizations’ vulnerability to SE 2.0 and 2) managing and reducing the associated risk.


DBI’s part in the project

  1. Develop the "awareness" component as the cornerstone of the mitigation activities.
  2. Conduct an extensive field test of the DOGANA platform with six users operating in the critical areas of energy, finance, transport, utilities, and public authorities.
