    Jul 25, 2018

    So you’ve heard of the sharing economy. You know, the business model based on sharing access to goods amongst peers pioneered by AirBnb, Uber and Velib. This model offers numerous benefits for society, from democratizing markets - and driving down prices in the process - to maximizing the useability of assets, and even adding a more human touch to transactions.

AI is apparently going to revolutionise such diverse industries as fashion and recruitment, and just last week the UK and French governments announced a joint work force on AI between the Alan Turing Institute and the DATAIA.

    What Facebook has taught us about third party risk in the context of GDPR

    Jul 10, 2018

    The UK Information Commission Office has announced that Facebook will be handed out the maximum fine of £500,000 for allowing the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica to harvest the data of millions of people without their consent in the lead-up to the Brexit referendum. The fine will be handed down under the jurisdiction of existing UK legislation which is completely independent of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). However, the decision sets a sobering precedent that concretizes the risk of third-party data breaches.

    The truth about the Chinese Dark web: hiding in the crowd on the Clear web

    Jun 21, 2018

    The Information Security community is realizing that classic external malevolence is only part of the whole risk picture, which includes the negligence of internal actors and third parties. This doesn’t mean that external threat actors should be disregarded - cyber crime is as much a threat for businesses as ever - it simply means that they need to be taken into account as part of a broader cybersecurity strategy.

    The physical risks of Connected Storage

    Apr 30, 2018

    The convergence between physical and digital security is a trend that the InfoSec community has been aware of for quite some time now, and with the rise of the Internet of Things, the line between physical and digital risks has never been more blurred. We know that if a driverless car were hacked, the risks would include theft, hijack, injury or even death. If the remote connection of a power plant were taken over, threat actors could unleash a deliberate outage, or even a nuclear meltdown. In all of these examples, the risks have physical implications.
