#nationalcybersecuritymonth | Interos Completes Series B Funding to Drive Data Science

Interos announced it has raised $17.5 million in a Series B funding round to accelerate data science and engineering growth, expand personnel and boost sales to drive commercial momentum for its leading risk management platform.

The funding comes after Interos tripled its headcount, increased annual recurring revenue by 700% and hiked SaaS subscription bookings by 693% in 2019. With the funding, Interos expects to capitalize on last year’s growth and more than double its personnel in 2020, hiring more staff to augment its proprietary software, which exposes critical risks in the global supply chain for leading private and public sector customers. 

 The round was led by first-time investor Venrock with participation from Kleiner Perkins. 

 “After a strong 2019, this funding shows Interos has already secured major support in 2020 from the world’s most successful investors,” said Jennifer Bisceglie, CEO and founder of Interos. “Like our customers, investors see the value of the Interos platform, which is critical for global businesses in 2020. From events like the coronavirus to political unrest, companies need a platform that exposes risks and identifies how events affect suppliers around the world the moment they happen.” 

“Interos is one of the most compelling big data and AI companies I’ve come across in the last decade,” said Nick Beim, Venrock partner. “Over the last 20 years, global supply chains have grown so rapidly and with so much opacity that most companies don’t know who they’re working with or who they’re dependent on. There’s so much data to gather to fully understand those risks, and Interos helps companies address these urgent, strategic issues with a brand new set of capabilities.”

Interos also recently added Phil Venables, a cybersecurity and risk expert to its board of directors. Venables’ distinguished career includes previously serving as Goldman Sachs’ first chief information security officer and head of technology risk, and as its chief operational risk officer. Prior to his work at Goldman Sachs, Venables was the chief information security officer at Deutsche Bank. Venables serves on the executive committee of the U.S. Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection, is co-chair of the Board of Sheltered Harbor, and is a member of the boards of the Center for Internet Security and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He is also an adviser to the cybersecurity efforts of the U.S. National Research Council and the Institute for Defense Analyses.

Interos has worked with the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA and Department of Energy critical infrastructure. Interos uses machine learning to build and maintain the world’s largest knowledge graph of over 50 million relationships to discover and monitor the entirety of a supplier ecosystem. Each month, Interos ingests over 85,000 information feeds, processing over 250 million risks a month. Interos instantly visualizes the most complex multi-tier relationships, updating and alerting to changes in risk along five factors: financial, operations, governance, geographic and cyber.

 “In today’s interconnected world, Interos is bringing clarity to the muddled, confusing nature of supplier relationships,” said Ted Schlein, partner at Kleiner Perkins. “By automating due diligence, leveraging sophisticated technology and exposing vital risks, Interos shines a light on an otherwise opaque global supply chain.”

#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Cloud Series: Building a Secure Identity Cloud

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

 

What does it mean for businesses to “go to the cloud?” While the term “cloud” can be used generically, there are many types of cloud architectures. A key benefit of moving to the cloud is that your data is secured with redundant, diversified servers managed by a third party. With your data managed by a third party vendor, it’s important to understand how and where that data is stored. ForgeRock carefully designs an isolated and secure cloud environment for each customer, while maintaining the benefits of the cloud, like sharing high-level resources to reduce costs for customers.

Secure by Design

To understand the concept of these shared cloud resources, it can be useful to imagine the ForgeRock Identity Cloud as a condominium building, with ForgeRock as the landlord. We are responsible for the general construction and maintenance of the building, as well as for shared infrastructure like common water supply and security. Condominium units within the building can be compared to individual customer environments within the cloud, each isolated and protected with walls, locked doors and windows. 

By comparison, other identity cloud architectures and deployments are less like condominium buildings and more comparable to open spaces like high school gymnasiums — more open and malleable. These cloud architectures use virtual machine environments which can be spun up and spun down quickly. Would you feel as secure and safe living in a gymnasium as in your own condo unit? 

In either scenario — condo or gymnasium — you could still have a noisy neighbor. The farther you are from your neighbors, the more sound protection you have. In the case of a data leak, being farther from your “noisy neighbors” by being in an isolated cloud environment, offers more data protection. 

Is your cloud architecture an open space, or a condo building?

This example is an oversimplification but it is meant to underscore the steps ForgeRock has taken to ensure there is no shared knowledge among its customers. We call this architecture our “secure multi-tenant environment with full customer isolation.” In the next few sections, we’ll help you understand exactly what that means for you.

Understanding Multi-Tenancy 

It is important to understand exactly what we mean by multi-tenancy. Revisiting the condominium building analogy, the entire building — from the basic condo unit to the luxury penthouse — is built to common standards using the same materials, and is operated consistently. In the same way, a multi-tenant cloud service is built on a common, consistent model to deliver service to its customers. ForgeRock provides high-level resources, like the ForgeRock Identity Platform that is shared across the entire ForgeRock Identity Cloud. All customer environments are built within the cloud from a standard template and hosted using a common technology base. These environments are maintained according to a consistent set of processes. They are continually updated against security vulnerabilities and upgraded with the latest code base. 

Another benefit of multi-tenancy is the ability for large customers to self-manage multiple environments with a high-level, real-time overview across multiple data centers. Customers who require multiple geo-specific data centers for compliance reasons find this particularly valuable.

Full Tenant Isolation Explained 

Continuing with the condominium metaphor, full tenant isolation can be compared to the individual condo unit itself. The ForgeRock Identity Cloud provides each customer with a distinct, dedicated data environment. All passwords, private keys, and other secrets associated with a customer’s ForgeRock Identity Cloud instance are generated, securely stored, and used solely within the customer environment. There is no shared knowledge between tenants — each tenant environment is self-sufficient and sovereign. Each environment runs a distinct copy of the service code under dedicated identities, with dedicated storage for customer secrets and data that only the customer can access. Additionally, the ForgeRock Identity Cloud enables customers to select their data center location so they can be in compliance with certain regulations. This is unique among identity cloud providers.

In addition to building a secure cloud architecture, ForgeRock also hardens our software by following the latest industry best practices. Our Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDLC) maintains high integrity though continuous testing. Our continuous deployment and integration means you will always have the latest version. 

That’s the ForgeRock difference.

#deepweb | Hunting Warhead — a new podcast series that shines a light on the ‘dark web’

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The story of Hunting Warhead, a six-part co-production from the Canadian network CBC and the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang (known as VG), begins with an IT expert and computer hacker named Einar Stangvik and his pursuit of the perpetrators of online revenge porn. After months spent tracking down and monitoring them, Stangvik shared his findings with the VG journalist Hakon Hoydal; the subsequent story resulted in one of the offenders, a local politician in Drammen, losing his job and serving a two-month prison sentence. The case also marked the beginning of a fruitful working partnership between Stangvik and Hoydal.

Stangvik doesn’t like to be called a hacker as, he says, “I try to fix things, not tear them down.” Nevertheless, his ability to infiltrate the dark web and uncover criminal activity has led to his and Hoydal’s exposure of an international network dedicated to the creation and sharing of child abuse images. Presented by the Canadian journalist Daemon Fairless, Hunting Warhead — “WarHead” is the username of the creator of Childs Play, a web forum for abusers and paedophiles which had more than a million registered users — tells of the painstaking business of tracking down web servers and hosting facilities as well as the site’s users.

The first episode of the series focuses on the site’s discovery, while the second shifts to Stangvik and Hoydal’s pursuit of its administrators, their dealings with police and the sting operation that led to the apprehension of “WarHead”. The latter’s arrest and subsequent imprisonment is told via an interview with a man named Gordon who recalls joining his roommate, Benjamin Faulkner, on a trip from Ontario to Washington D.C. When the police batter down their door early one morning, he learns that Faulkner has been running a child pornography network and the objective of his trip was to meet with fellow paedophiles and take part in the rape of a child.

While the facts are undoubtedly harrowing, the series steers clear of prurient detail, focusing on the investigative process and the personal impact of the case on those who helped to build it. Recalling the first arrest, Hoydal says, “I don’t cry very often but I did then.” Hunting Warhead has been billed as true crime, though it feels closer to the journalistic reporting seen in such series as the Bellingcat Podcast, about an investigation into the downing of Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine, and The Tip Off, which tells the behind-the-scenes stories of scoops including the unmasking of the Isis terrorist known as “John the Beatle”. Told with enormous subtlety and care, Hunting Warhead shines a light into the darkest corners of the internet while revealing the skill and doggedness that go into exposing egregious wrongdoing. As Stangvik says: “Anyone can be unmasked if you’re willing to put the time and resources into it.”
