DarkMatter Demonstrates First-of-its-kind Cyber Resilience Platform, Which Will Help Predict and Mitigate Cyber Security Risk Between Connected Entities

ABU DHABI and DUBAI, UAE, October 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The proprietary platform draws expertise from across DarkMatter to produce this powerful tool for the assessment and prediction of cyber risk  

DarkMatter, an international cyber security firm headquartered in the UAE, announces the introduction of its Cyber Resilience Platform, a first-of-its-kind city-wide dashboard that helps visualise the readiness of critical entities against cyber threats.

The platform succinctly demonstrates the cascading effect of cyber breach on separate, yet interconnected critical entities in a smart city environment, allowing for the first time, a contextualisation of the impact of a cyber breach on entities individually as well as collectively.

The Cyber Resilience Platform allows city authorities to predict and react timeously to cyber threats, with the powerful tool acting as a playbook for a city to be able to see how its critical entities are working individually, and as part of a wider interconnected, smart environment.

The holistic platform builds on DarkMatter's outlook to add cyber resilience end-to-end in a digital environment and is an extension of DarkMatter's Cyber Security Life-Cycle outlook, which incorporates a four-stage approach to cyber security involving planning, detection, protection and recovery.

Using sensors, interconnected services and decision-making algorithms to help entities predict, monitor and manage cyber incidents in near real-time, the platform is also scalable, and transferable so entities of any size, across multiple sectors that can benefit from its predictive capabilities.

Commenting on the introduction of the Cyber Resilience Platform, Faisal Al Bannai, CEO of DarkMatter said, "This platform represents DarkMatter's ability to draw expertise from across the organisation and produce tools that assess and predict the level of cyber risk in order for entities to pro-actively act in defence of their digital assets within an interconnected environment."

Faisal Al Bannai continued, "Our Cyber Resilience Platform is a KPI-focused, operations-oriented tool, which for the first time looks to bridge the gap between the activities of critical entities and the state of their security. We believe this platform will gain significant traction not just from federal and municipal entities, but for all organisations operating in highly digitised, connected eco-systems where cyber vulnerabilities have knock-on effects."

The platform's output from analysing resilience is used to monitor the actual status of systems, so it becomes a tool that produces actionable intelligence rather than offering just theoretical scenarios. The pace of digital transformation, and the instrumented, intelligent, and interconnected nature of modern digital networks means a more interactive and all-inclusive approach to assessing cyber resilience is required, which is what the platform delivers.

Harshul Joshi, Senior Vice President and the Chief Architect of the Cyber Resilience Platform said, "Our platform is not just another box-ticking exercise. It offers real and actionable information to allow connected entities to better protect themselves and mitigate against cyber attack individually as well as collectively. I like to view our platform as working like a pain detector in the human body, which draws attention to where a problem may exist, and triggers a series of actions to correct the problem. We are looking to add immunity to digitisation and better equip entities to be able to guard against cyber threats."

To see the Cyber Resilience Model demonstrated live, please visit the DarkMatter stand at booth number Z-C30, Za'abeel Hall, GITEX Technology Week, 16-20 October 2016, Dubai World Trade Centre.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
