data breach

Forensic digital risk management organisation, The Crypsis Group, has announced the creation of the Crypsis Threat Research Labs, a group committed to studying emerging cybersecurity threats and trends.

The goal of the group is to publish their research to help bolster organisational cybersecurity and data privacy measures.

The team will leverage innovative tools developed by Crypsis’s development team as well as the considerable stores of threat intelligence data gleaned from thousands of the company’s historic and current investigations to analyze the changing threat landscape.

CTRL will be led by directors Tony Cook and Jared Greenhill; and while it includes full-time dedicated staff members, Crypsis’s services staff will also contribute their expertise to CTRL projects. The team will produce research reports, blogs, “Flash Alerts” (which will provide analysis of newly discovered security risks or malware types), white papers and open-sourced tools.

“The CTRL team helps our clients by advancing the overall state of cybersecurity and staying on top of threats as they emerge,” said Bret Padres, Crypsis’s CEO.

“We have considerable data from years of investigations and the advanced tools to assess and evaluate the meaning of that data from a macro view. This information will help not only our clients, but organizations in general react more quickly to new threats and respond proactively to emerging trends.”
