The Opportunities of the Dark Web

May 13, 2016

What I learned from the first-ever dark web event.



Yesterday, we held the world’s first Dark Web conference called Inside Dark Web – with partners Bob Miko and Alan Meckler. When we first decided to launch the event we discussed the business opportunities the dark web presents. After the event, there are a few observations I’ve made that I think are worth sharing.

Inside Dark Web Live Blog 2016

May 11, 2016





I will be live-blogging all about the latest dark web happenings from the show starting tomorrow. Gordon G. Chang, the author of Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World as well as other works is about to take the stage here at the Inside Dark Web Conference.




The most dangerous criminals on the Dark Web are states. Hackers sponsored by Russia attacked Ukraine in the past. It is also a matter of time before a rogue state or bad actor takes out critical infrastructure in the US.




A Million Dark Web Facebook Users Value Privacy, Security and Safety

April 25, 2016

Each month, over one million people access Facebook over the dark web via Tor. So why does Facebook offer such a site and why would people even want to use it? The company says the primary drivers of this growth are privacy, security and safety.

According to Alec Muffet of Facebook:

This is why in the last two years we built the Facebook onion site and onion-mobile site, helped standardise the “.onion” domain name, and implemented Tor connectivity for our Android mobile app by enabling connections through Orbot.

He continued:

Over this period the number of people who access Facebook over Tor has increased.

Sonus Says Dial Plans Are A hot Product These Days

March 13, 2016

I just had a fascinating conversation with Sonus – they company responsible in-part for getting carriers to adopt IP communications is now seeing something very interesting happen. The company’s PSX or Centralized Routing and Policy Server is gaining interest among customers. The reason? They are looking to integrate their disparate IP communications systems together into a unified solution.

Inside Dark Web Conference: Why TMC Teamed with Alan Meckler

March 9, 2016

 

Alan Meckler is one of the brightest visionaries in the tech world having launched the first show covering the Internet in the 1990s – Internet World, part of Mecklermedia. He was underestimated and denigrated by virtually all the traditional tech publishers and trade show producers at the time, yet his event grew faster than any show I have ever seen.

I attended many of these conferences in New York and Los Angeles and saw with my own eyes how professionally run and vibrant these fast-growing shows were.

Cradlepoint talks scaling IoT at IoT Evolution Expo




At the most recent IoT Evolution Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we had a chance to interview a number of the companies shaping the future of the IoT space. Cradlepoint (below) for example had a lot of exciting news to share such as the company's recent SDN acquisition and how this relates to keeping IoT devices secure and scaling properly.



Gemalto too had some great news to share - their secure IoT solutions are doing well in the market thanks to mainstream hacking publicity. He went on to detail various threats companies need to keep in mind - after a risk assessment they work backwards from.



If there was a trend, it was optimism... Here is the complete list of IoT companies interviewed:

Politically Motivated Hackers Hit Nissan, Are You Prepared?

January 15, 2016

Quite often when we think about hackers, we imagine there is someone looking to gain something of value from us. In response, we plan our computer and network security strategy with this in mind. For example, many attacks have targeted credit cards as companies like Target have learned about the hard way. Their breach cost them hundreds of millions - $200 million actually and counting.

My Thoughts on the Iran Dam Hacking in Rye, NY

ISIS Brings Flip-Phone to Crowd-Sourced Cyber-Hacking Fight.

November 19, 2015

Its an interesting world we live in where a group like Anonymous which likely wasn't thought very highly has become a savior thanks to their efforts to combat ISIS. The Obama administration, Putin and the rest of the world which has lost their citizens to ISIS may have done less to hurt this organization in 18 months than Anonymous has done in a few days of fighting this organization.

President Obama has said repeatedly and so has Hillary Clinton that we are fighting an ideology. So any logical and sane person would put two and two together and figure out if ISIS is using social media extremely well to spread their ideology, then maybe we should shut down their twitter accounts, right? Doesn't the CIA and NSA have tens of billions of dollars at their disposal to keep the US safe?

BuckleMate Reduces Teen Injuries Through Smart Monitoring

September 24, 2015



You really need to have nerves of steel when you give the car keys to your teen child for the first time. At that very moment, a parent can have a traumatic episode where they remember their child's entire life while simultaneously reliving every near-miss collision and accident they've ever witnessed or been involved in.

The good news is, technology allows new and innovative solutions to this problem most every parent may have to face at one time or another. Specifically, BuckleMate was founded by Jeffrey Miller who serves as CEO, to deal with this issue. The following interview goes into detail regarding how his company can help make teen driving a safer endeavor and perhaps it can become simultaneously less traumatic.

Tell me about BuckleMate – how did the idea come to you?



I came across a product about 5 years ago that would force drivers to Buckle their seat belts.
