15th episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This episode is produced in collaboration with the European project ALAMEDA (Bridging the Early Diagnosis and Treatment Gap of Brain Diseases via Smart, Connected, Proactive and Evidence-based Technological Interventions - https://alamedaproject.eu).

An in-depth Italian article on the ALAMEDA project, by Maris Matteucci & Matteo Mauri (ALAMEDA: Intelligenza Artificiale per il trattamento dei disturbi cerebrali) is available in our blog and on Difesa Online.

The Italian version of this episode is available here: CyberSeComics Ep. #15 - Graf-IA.

In healthcare, the cost of treating brain disorders accounts for a significant percentage of total treatment costs. In Europe, the budget for treating brain disorders alone far surpasses the combined budget for other diseases.
Utilising cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence, the EU-funded ALAMEDA project could greatly reduce the cost of treating these conditions by enabling personalised care and improved treatments for major brain disorders. The goal is to demonstrate AI-enabled prediction, prevention and intervention, making the treatment of disorders such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis and strokes more affordable and easing the burden on healthcare systems across Europe.

Within the project, Pluribus One deals with a delicate aspect of ALAMEDA's IT security: the design of the platform to ensure the protection and privacy of data that will be hosted, processed and shared with the scientific community. Not an easy task, considering that in recent years cyberattacks against European health facilities have shown a growing and worrying trend.

CyberSeComics Ep. #14 - AIDA foresees (almost) everything

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

14th episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This episode is produced in collaboration with the European project AIDA (Artificial Intelligence and advanced Data Analytics for Law Enforcement Agencies - www.project-aida.eu).

Next Monday, on Difesa Online and on our blog, an in-depth Italian article on the AIDA project, by Maris Matteucci (Intelligenza Artificiale e Forze dell'Ordine: tecnologia ed etica del progetto AIDA).
This episode, along with further details and info on the project, is available also in the third edition of the AIDA official Newsletter: www.project-aida.eu/index.php/newsletter.
The Italian version of this episode is available here: CyberSeComics Ep. #14 - AIDA prevede (quasi) tutto.

AIDA has an ambitious goal: to develop a descriptive and predictive data analysis platform and a set of satellite tools to prevent, detect, analyze and combat several typologies of criminal activities. Without forgetting the social aspects (citizens' perception of the use of Artificial Intelligence tools) and the citizens' privacy.

To identify, prevent and combat modern crimes, it is nowadays necessary to implement innovative technologies and methods that are transversal to different types of crimes: cybercrime and terrorism pose distinct problems to Law Enforcement Agencies. The prevention of cybercrime relies on the analysis of different sets of input data compared to those used for the fight against terrorism. However, the same analysis of these data can benefit from the application and use of a common denominator: a technological framework equipped with Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning algorithms applied to Big Data analysis, and tailor-made to provide law enforcement with specific additional analytical tools to combat individual criminal activities.

Let's see what happened in the episode, with a little spoiler. Wallo, technology can help but still can't make miracles!

CyberSeComics Ep. #8 - Smishing

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Eighth episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

Black Friday is coming !!! And then Christmas !!! The rush for gifts and compulsive online shopping is starting!

But beware of fraudulent SMS notifying alleged delivery attempts.

In this episode we warn against Smishing and other frauds affecting the mobile devices: it is a recent neologism that combines the acronym SM (Short Message), with the word Phishing.
These messages often contain malicious links, suitably designed to steal important credentials to act in the name and on behalf of the victim. Or links to sites that contain malware that can install itself without arousing suspicion on smartphones, tablets or other devices that the victim uses to visit these sites.

We cannot directly protect you from Smishing but we certainly have weapons against Phishing and against links conveyed through Smishing.
Pluribus One Internet Security® is our free service for safe Internet browsing, which, as its primary purpose, ensures to avoid domains containing Phishing, Malware, and Scam. And, among other features, it allows also to avoid unwanted advertising.

And, it's not over, stay tuned! Our free app for the protection of mobile devices, based on Machine Learning algorithms, is coming: Pluribus One Mobile Security® will soon be available on Google Play to protect Android devices.

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Seventh episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

Prevention is better than cure! The more you spend the less you spend! Think Before ... You Click!

We agree with dentists and with all the proverbs that protect us from the consequences of a lack of planning, in our case from the consequences of a cyber attack. October has just ended: it was the European Cyber Security Month - ECSM (ECSM, organized by ENISA), a European Union campaign designed to promote awareness on cyber threats and methods to face them.

Wallo also wants to make his contribution to this campaign. Each data breach on organizations costs the impacted company on average 3.86 million dollars globally and 2.90 million euros in Italy. This according to Cost of a Data Breach 2020, a report conducted by Ponemon Institute on behalf of IBM Security, an organization that also notes a 10% increase in costs for the 2021.

Don't be like Wallo's boss! Be aware, invest in Cybersecurity!

Pluribus One Web Application Security®, our solution for the protection of incoming traffic to web applications and services is smart and, thanks to sophisticated Machine Learning algorithms, tries to model the behavior of users who connect to the pages of a website, configuring a standard behavior profile. When we detect a behavior that deviates from the standard profile, the alarm is triggered.

Sixth episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This time Wallo discovers that not all Web Application Firewalls work in the same wayl. Absolute protection? Let's block everything !!! And goodbye functionality!

Pluribus One Web Application Security®, our solution for the protection of incoming traffic to web applications and services is smart and, thanks to sophisticated Machine Learning algorithms, it self-learns the legitimate traffic, distinguishing it from the illegitimate one but also from the potentially suspicious one; it provides automatic alerts and reports, builds customized protection rules and involves the system operator in the decision-making process, in an explainable way.

Our protection systems essentially try to model the behavior of users who connect to the pages of a website, configuring a standard behavior profile. When we detect a behavior that deviates from the standard profile, the alarm is triggered.

Fourth episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This time we enter the world of Social Engineering, the study of a person's individual behavior in order to extrapolate and exploit useful information to build a subsequent, personalized and effective attack.

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Third episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This episode is produced in collaboration with the AssureMOSS project. This time Wallo is grappling with the task of finding bugs and vulnerabilities within a software project, and this work requires a lot of time and attention. Let’s see if Wallo is lucky and if he is doing the right thing.

But before, two more words on the lesson to be learnt. The Assurance and certification in secure Multi-party Open Software and Services (AssureMOSS) project aims to produce a coherent set of automated, lightweight techniques that allow software companies to assess, manage, and re-certify the security and privacy risks associated with the fast-paced development and continuous deployment of multi-party open software and services.

AssureMOSS tools for development-time analysis help save time in finding bugs and vulnerabilities by analyzing each commit to your code repository, speeding up the whole project re-certification process.

Wallo, be aware! Next time be sure to use AssureMOSS and contact us at https://assuremoss.eu!

CyberSeComics Ep. #2 - The vaccine

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Second episode of CyberSeComics, comics series produced by Pluribus One.

This time Wallo, a character from the world of Mirko's Scribbles, is grappling with a bizarre online order, the Anti-Covid Vaccine.

Pluribus one offers protection against other types of viruses, the computer viruses. But we can give you some advice even in this case.

The anti-covid vaccines are free and administered only by the National Health Service. They are not immediately available to everyone, we will have to wait, and this can frustrate our desire to obtain protection from Covid-19 as soon as possible or to immediately obtain more freedom to travel, through the so-called European Green Pass.
In any case, however, always be wary of those who want to subtly sell pharmaceutical products online. Fake Pharmacies represent a dangerous phenomenon of the digital world and, above all, of the Dark Web. They are a dangerous type of Scam and Phishing.

Let's see what happened to Wallo's order.
