Protecting organizations and people from phishing threats

The latest attack landscape study (Attack Landscape H1 2021) performed by F-Secure found an increase in spam and phishing emails. One factor contributing to the increase is the global pandemic, because some of the attacks are exploiting the fear and confusion in the public.
Thus, it is more relevant than ever to protect against these kinds of attacks.
Therefore, one of the key objectives in SAPPAN is to protect organizations and people from these phishing threats.

Generally, the idea is to build and test machine learning models that try to identify phishing URLS and public-key certificates used by known malicious parties.

SAPPAN mid-term review update

SAPPAN mid-term review finished successfully last week.
Due to the COVID situation, the review meeting was organised online by the EU commission on Dec 3.  We have received positive feedback on our progress from our reviewers.
We will receive detailed feedback in January and will continue the progress of the project based on the comments.

We want to thank the EU Commission and the reviewers again for their encouragement and support.
