How AI and Machine Learning Can Help With Governmental Cybersecurity Strategies
linkedin
April 21, 2019
An ever-present threat to any given country’s national security is that of cybersecurity. There are always hackers that want to use technology for malicious purposes, not to say the long list of adversaries that a country can pile up along the years. In a national security context, the cybersecurity risk increases greatly, as well as the potential damage. That’s so as what it is at stake is millions of sensible data from citizens, companies, directories, senior officers and members of the government, state’s information and more.

The Importance Of Cybersecurity In Fintech

March 28, 2019
Financial technology might be well seen as one of the most thriving industries worldwide. Fintech companies offer solutions through technological advancements to long-standing problems in the financial sector, while making the customer’s experience easier and engaging. This last part, leveraging the user experience and, thus, bringing back trust to financial companies, is probably one of the major challenges that players in the financial sector – both small entrepreneurs and big banks alike – face.

Blockchain Smart Contracts: Challenges and Opportunities
linkedin
March 20, 2019
One of the main reasons why blockchain attracted so much attention lately, is probably due to the possibility that it can allow deeper layers of trust between members in a given network. Blockchain technology has been described as a technology that is trustless, anonymous, available and decentralized. What enables this, is its underlying algorithm, able to be built upon and blended into multiple solutions. If properly developed and integrated within the network, blockchain can radically change the way two users agree on the terms and execution of a contract of any kind.

Challenges and Risks of AI In Cybersecurity
linkedin
March 10, 2019
Artificial Intelligence is seen by many as the latest solution to a growing threat: the rise of cyber attacks in recent years. Machine learning and other AI applications can be embedded within algorithms in basically any software. Given the fact that today’s world pretty much runs digitally, AI seems to be the answer to cybercrime damages that will cost the world $6 trillion every year by the time we reach 2021. However, while AI can exponentially boost cybersecurity, it can also make the task even more complex. AI can be used and modified by hackers, who are always eager to evolve and use the last available tech in the market to cause harm.

In the early years of the 1970s, the internet was only an idea, an objective that IT specialists couldn’t dream of just yet. Back then, when their highly evolved software suddenly crashed, these engineers and mathematicians referred to these crashes as inconsistencies or instabilities. When these happened, they just reviewed the code, fixed it and rebooted the program. It could take months for them to find and fix the “inconsistencies”, and between those lapses of time when they were trying to fix the problem, life would just go on. without the IT system.

Revolutionising Cybersecurity With Digital Forensics Part 1
linkedin
January 30, 2019
Cyber security breaches have become rapidly one of the main concerns among all kinds of organizations. Even though companies are investing in complex new solutions against undesired guests, the task has never been easier. The various backdoors, loose ends and interconnected computer systems, mean that these intrusions are sometimes… inevitable. If unfortunately that happens, companies are left with little options but to quickly spot where the vulnerability was, fix it and learn from it, to prevent future attempts. Once the hysteria has passed and functionality has been restored, it is about time that investigators jump in, to gather all possible evidence to find out who the perpetrators were and what they were after.

Digital Forensics: Turning the Tides in Criminal Investigation

What is Digital Forensics?

Digital Forensics is a term that almost no one knows what it stands for…Digital Forensics can turn the tides completely in a criminal investigation and it is more important then ever in the current digital age in which we all live. The shift to the digital world brings many challenges indeed, but it also opens up opportunities in the shape of traceability and records. Everything that is done in an electronic device leaves watermarks, inputs that can be traced and followed if needed. Digital Forensics, therefore, is the science responsible to crack those marks.

January 25, 2019
Tech expert and entrepreneur Sherman Lee recently said, “Blockchain itself may be trustless, immutable and incorruptible, but if we ignore the bugs present in them, they are as good as multi-billion dollar safes with faulty locks.” Blockchain praises itself of being incorruptible due to its complex math, but in reality, when implemented in real-case scenarios, the resulted software might come with flaws that can tear the whole system down. Hackers only need a back-door that has been left ajar, to exploit flaws in the system. Tiny fissures within the nodes, in the proof-of-work protocols or in the blocks to cause mayhem within the software. For they only need human misuse of the blockchain code to break a complex-maths, hacker-proof algorithm.

As businesses, governments and consumers rely on digital systems to fulfil most of their daily operations, so do the risks of those systems being hacked increase. The more the technologies they adopt, the greater the hazards they have to face. In fact, new solutions to ease businesses daily operations such as Artificial Intelligence in Operative Systems and IT software huge databases, bring even more complexity to an already convoluted world. However, these new techs can also become their strongest allies!

How AI and Blockchain Will Be The Future Of Cybersecurity

January 21, 2019
The widely adoption of digital technologies in our daily lives means greater perils for which most of us are underprepared. We have adopted behaviours to protect ourselves in the analogue world throughout years of evolution, which has worked just fine until now. In the digital, nonetheless, we are still falling behind, either because of the complexity of current IT systems, lack of literacy or the remoteness of a blurred risk hitting us directly. However they reason may be, cybersecurity is nothing less important than the safety measures we would take in real life to keep well guarded what rightfully belongs to us. Identity, money or private information are all critical data susceptible of being hacked, though the shields we have set up between them and us are fragile and weak, to say the least. AI and blockchain are born out of human behaviours that have worked in the past, prediction, responsiveness and validation, which makes them two of the most promising security measures for the near future.

There is one shared statement amongst today’s cybersecurity experts: evolve or fall against an ever evolving enemy. IT development has been characterized for releasing new and improved systems over time. However, these improvements in user interface and user experience, reliability and quicknesses, and overall system response, have forgotten one crucial aspect : security. It doesn’t mean, though, that big tech companies haven’t paid attention to it, they have just relied on practically the same security standards that have worked throughout years. The little improvements within those standards, unfortunately have been compromised once and again.

A common threat in a external attack is the possibility of deleting all business data. Moreover, when an attack occurs, hackers take extra care of leaving everything cleaned after themselves.

However, Digital Forensics investigators have got a whole array of toolkits to keep them from getting away with it. Data recovery is one of the best solutions for such problems. Data recovery tools must be able to cover the recovery process from different types of operating systems and data formats and sometimes they must deal with encrypted data to be able to recover it.
