Irdeto’s Cybersecurity Services team obtained a copy of the largest aggregated database of stolen credentials.
We live in an always connected world. So much so that in The Netherlands they’ve put the red ‘don’t walk’ light on the ground as people are so engrossed looking down at their mobile device. If you ask how wireless connectivity can be improved: it’s faster download, quicker response and more reliable connection. According to its promise 5G will deliver all that and more! Great news for consumers. But will it be the cybercriminals who are real winners?
For the past 30 years, the growth in hacking has correlated directly with the proliferation of personal computing and mobile communication devices. And with the world now firmly in the digital age, concerns over “lone wolf” hackers have been re-focused on what are now resilient, complex and sophisticated crime organizations conducting global cyber attacks.
Of course, lone wolf attackers and small hacking groups still exist in every corner of the internet, often launching ransomware and Wi-Fi attacks, or implanting malware on PCs.
After lots of meetings with studios and operators at CES, a memory popped into my head. “Making camel-friendly packaging”. What on earth does that have to do with content?
Back in the day

The impact of global cybercrime is shocking: 38.5% of firms have experienced a cyberattack in the past 12 months and 21% of cyberattacks result in costs exceeding €5M. Financial services is arguably the industry most targeted by hackers. As such, these numbers will likely skyrocket as the industry undergoes disruption.
Sci-fi often portrays artificial intelligence (AI) like this: a computer watches people for a while, blinks darkly and decides the solution to the world’s problems is to kill off the human race. Thankfully we are far away from that. But what AI is capable of today is simulating a specific human brain function – such as pattern recognition. And that’s very exciting for security.
AI makes security practical in the open world
The world is now open, causing disruption in many industries and changing the demands on security.
Picture Bob. He thinks he’s figured out how to avoid paying for cable TV by watching programs streamed from pirate websites. One day, he’s watching a live football broadcast and ten minutes into the game, he loses all access. His screen goes blank. Is ruining the user experience on pirated sites a new combat strategy?
Seeing it differently
Degrading user experience may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering how to combat cybercrime.
