Ethical Hacking

Data

Our data is sourced from the GDELT Project's public datasets.

Methodology

We have found that reported ethical hacking incidents largely correspond to events within GDELT's Global Knowledge Graph which correspond to the themes of 'CYBER_ATTACK' and 'SLFID_CIVIL_LIBERTIES'. By querying these kinds of events, constrained by the relevant time periods, we are left with a dataset of ethical hacking incidents which we can transform and represent in our charts and analysis.
