In the last years, society has been going through a digital transformation of most public services: citizens can now interact digitally with the government (e.g. municipalities, libraries, tax offices, etc.). Local businesses and public service providers are also increasingly digitizing their services allowing them to offer user-friendly access around the clock. The large-scale expansion of digital technologies has resulted in increased numbers and forms of cyber-attacks by different types of adversaries on the Internet. In order to protect ourselves against these adversaries, it is important to know who they are and what their abilities are.
