Payment Fraud

Nowadays the payment fraud landscape is changing quite fast. Changing from classic schemes as bank cheque fraud, faked manual payment orders to organized crime with corporate as targets.

Understanding fraud also occurs when dishonest acts are committed without personal gain but are intended to create a loss or risk of loss for another person or entity. This includes the intentional misrepresentation of financial condition.

I created a presentation where I explain in details this topic, you can see my presentation here:

Social Engineering attacks

Currently, market has a wide range of systems, products and services focused on computer security services: Antivirus, Antispyware, Firewalls, IPS, WAF, SIEM systems, etc.
All these measures are indispensable and have become a priority for any company or organization towards ensuring its assets, but social engineering plays with the advantage that you can use techniques that violate own vulnerabilities inherent in human beings and, as is well known, for this there is no patch or upgrade that provides effective protection against such attacks.

People is normally “the weak link in the chain”.

Thinking on Risk Analysis

Some of you maybe made some risk analysis in the past, and maybe some others use to do risk analysis in a regular basis. Some people use Octave, CRAMM, NIST or other risk analysis methodologies, but…

Have you ever though if you have a GAP or a lack of visibility in the way you use to do your analysis?

I created a presentation where I explain in details this topic, you can see my presentation here:

Drones and their use on Critical Infrastructure

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) is increasing for both leisure and commercial
purposes, so it is more and more an extended practice.

The different uses are many and the list continue growing, thus some issues started to appear which
need regulations and best practices to try to control the use in a correct way.

I created a presentation where I explain the best practices about the use of drones in Critical Infrastructure, you can see my presentation here:

Internet of Things, Big Data & Mobility vs Privacy

data-protectionNowadays, and even more in the future, Internet of Things, Big Data and Mobility will be present (they are already now) in our personal and professional life.

The more these concepts grow, the more risk we are assuming about misuse of our Privacy Data, so more effort we will need to do to improve our privacy.

  • Internet of Things definitely is a big relationship between physicalWorld and virtualWorld.
    In the future (already now) the extensive use of our data in this new “virtual World” causes a huge risk of misuse of our private data.
  • Big Data is a broad term for data sets so large or complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate, including analysis and so many actions including information privacy.
    In the future (already now) the use of our data in Big data analysis environments will causes a huge risk of misuse of our private data.
  • Mobility or Mobile computing have almost an infinite list of uses of our data doing data processing, data sharing, data transfer, data publishing, etc. using Apps in our smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices, wearables to manage all these data, including also critical privacy data in e-Health applications.In the future (already now) an extensive use of our data in mobile computing environments will causes a huge risk of misuse of our private data.

I had created a presentation where the relationship between these 4 concepts is explained in detail:
