Read more

The evolution of IT security in recent years has generated a wide range of sensations: sometimes we feel like we are tripping over the same stone over and over. Other times, it’s more like a déjà vu. And sometimes it even feels like we’ve reencountered Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog. For a long time, we’ve invested considerable resources in protecting intelligence and trying to stay one step ahead of cyber threats through information management, while still monitoring the desktop.

CounterCraft and the growing trend of deception technologies at Infosecurity Europe 2017

Read more

We are back from Infosecurity Europe, the largest conference on information security in the region. Just like last year —when we participated for the first time as exhibitors— it was a remarkable experience. We noticed an increasing interest among attendees regarding deception technologies.

CounterCraft, in a EU–funded project to fight against the illegitimate uses of virtual currencies

Read more

CounterCraft will be one of the fifteen international partners involved in a project called TITANIUM (Tools for the Investigation of Transactions in Underground Markets), created to stop criminals and attackers from using blockchain technology to hide from the police, while at the same time respecting the privacy and rights of legitimate users. Blockchain technology is a distributed ledger under decentralised control, which allows it to evade traditional investigative techniques. The best-known application of blockchain technology is Bitcoin, a virtual currency which has many legitimate uses but is also employed for criminal purposes in the so-called dark web.
