Qatar World Cup 2022 : A threat for football fans


Qatar is expecting in the region of 1.5 million visitors to arrive in the country for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Attackers are likely to see these visitors as high value targets.

Criminals are likely to carry out personal attacks against visiting football fans via their digital devices. They will attempt to steal personal or financial information that can be reused to conduct further attacks or sold on the black market. Many malicious domains such as 3i2cl[.]icu collect funds through fake betting and money transfers.

A continuous stream of real-time threat intelligence before and during the tournament will provide a better understanding of potential threats and allow security professionals to better defend against them.

As the state of Qatar prepares to deliver a successful and secure World Cup in 2022, a strong system of cybersecurity safeguards is vital for the international event. Check out our website for more information.
