Bojan simetic shares UNICC’s best practices for brand protection

On Thursday, 26 May, Bojan Simetic, Information Security Specialist at UNICC, presented as a keynote speaker in the Group-IB’s Digital Risk Summit 2022, which brings together independent analysts, cybersecurity experts and representatives of different industries to share the best practices of building, developing and scaling digital security and brand protection strategies in the time of COVID-19 and beyond.

Bojan joined representatives from organizations such as Global Anti Scam Alliance (GASA) ​and EBANK​. He presented on UNICC and its Common Secure Threat Intelligence service, which UNICC currently provides to 32 UN Agencies.

Bojan’s presentation, on Protecting UNICC’s Clients and Partner Organizations against Brand Impersonation, presented the question, “What are the main digital scams we are seeing in the UN Agencies we are working with?” and introduced the Common Secure Threat Intelligence service and its role in exposing the recent scams and building, developing and scaling digital security and brand protection for UNICC’s Clients and Partner Organizations.

During the discussion, three key questions were raised:

  • What would you evaluate as a top priority threat for your region and industry?
  • What call to action did scammers use to attract users?
  • What additional measures may we consider the game-changer in the scams field?

He detailed three use cases where the UNICC’s Common Secure team used brand protection against scams in which either UN Partnering Organizations are targeted with scams, or their names were just misused in order to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients.
