Fighting Cyberbullies and Harassment with Martial Art and Maltego
Cyberbullying is a constantly growing problem in our society today. According to Ipsos, one in three parents worldwide know a child in their community that has been a victim of cyberbullying. While awareness of cyberbullying and its effects is growing globally, measures still need to be taken to combat cyberbullying and harassment and teach vigilance to current and future generations!
To achieve this, a group of people in Italy created Zanshin Tech in 2014. Zanshin Tech is a martial art that deals specifically with cyberbullying. Yes, you read that right: a martial art! Zanshin Tech empowers its students by matching up cybersecurity techniques with the principles of traditional oriental martial arts like:
- Respect for your opponent
- Serene vigilance
Through the analysis of real cases, students learn how to recognize the internal mechanisms of digital attacks by understanding the individual attack techniques used by the aggressor, always in the respect of the Rules of the Dojo (a primary one being not using what you learn to attack other people).
And they are using Maltego!
Students train in doing OSINT, both as individuals and in groups, in order to assess the potential risk of a first contact and to deal with an aggressor, collecting evidence that can be provided to law enforcement should the need arise.
