Trend Report: What does the metadata reveal about the states in Latin America?
We have conducted a study with the objective of determining the level or maturity of the security controls which the States within Latin America implement, in respect to the prevention of metadata information leaks. We have utilized public documents detected in government domains, of which can be accessed by any network user, through search engines or directly on the different entities’ websites.
The study focused upon obtaining the metadata from public documents, in other words, no attempt was made to access private nor confidential documents at any time. From there, an analysis was carried out with the information that filtered from it, and that could potentially be useful for an attacker.
