Hofstede’s Cultural Markers in Successful Victim Cyber Exploitations

Abstract:

Hofstede, Hofstede, and Minkov (2010) observed that culture acts as “software of the mind”. These authors have written that culture influences behaviour and motivation for behaviour. This phenomenon may also be connected to underlying behaviours that inadvertently lead to successful exploitation. The current study was undertaken in order to determine if a statistical relationship exists between culture and successfully exploited government and military websites housed in victim countries.
