Specifically, the Commissioner stated that: “The threat posed by Turkish hackers is not only from Turkey but also from other countries. Just to tell you how the system works, one can be in one country and make the attack appear from a third country.” 

The target of hackers is the critical infrastructure of the state but also individuals, thus making the cyber security sector a vital sector. The Cyprus Digital Security Authority (CDSA) is on high alert to repel cyber attacks.
