How to identify hidden security risks

No business and IT organization are safe in the present cyber world. As cybercriminals increasingly rely on sophisticated technologies, organizations often feel hopeless as their confidential data and critical assets fall prey to malicious attacks.

Nowadays, security screening is a part of modern living and the need for safety continues. The technology used in screening people and their belongings exposes us to minimal amounts of radiation.

A safe and secure civil aviation system is a critical part of a nation’s overall security, physical infrastructure and economic foundation.

This threat assessment part involves assessing the various threats and security risks associated with a particular location. It covers a broad range of threats: ranging from natural threats (tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes), criminal threats (theft from location, violence against staff), to terrorists (active shooter, vehicle, and person-borne improvised explosive devices) and potential accidents.

Examples of cyber risks include:

  • Ransomware
  • Data leaks
  • Phishing
  • Malware
  • Insider threats
  • Cyberattacks

The three factors that feed into a risk vulnerability assessment are:

  • What is the threat?
  • How vulnerable is the system?
  • What is the financial damage if breached or made unavailable?

Hidden security threats – how to identify them?

Much attention has been given to certain indicators of potential insider threat actors. However, everyone has life experiences where their behaviour could potentially change from time to time. While obvious lifestyle and behavioural indicators such as an employee becoming rich for no apparent reason; someone becoming more reclusive and disengaged from colleagues; an employee carrying out the unauthorised or suspicious activity; through to an employee expressing strong and hostile views against their organisation, may be seen as insider threat indicators, they may also be due to some other issue such as workplace bullying, bereavement, lifestyle stressors or the triggering of psychological vulnerabilities.

The most factor is that someone needs to take responsibility to act appropriately when these indicators are present.

Nowadays, security screening is a part of modern living and the need for safety continues. The technology used in screening people and their belongings exposes us to minimal amounts of radiation.

Security threat assessment report

In case you were wondering what are the benefits of cyber security risk assessment reports, you should know that reporting plays a critical role in security risk assessment. By providing metrics that measure the presence of risk in your digital ecosystem and the effectiveness of your risk management decisions and processes, your cyber risk reports can help you prioritize your efforts to focus on the areas of greatest risk and the actions that will have the most impact.

The EyeFox solution

EyeFox detects and identifies hidden threats. Our solution employs deep learning computer vision to the screening process for automatic threat detection. Also, it creates a centralised image processing network whose value increases exponentially as it develops, learns and improves with data aggregation.

Machine learning plays a key role in the AI technology we use, where a computer system is fed large amounts of data, which it then uses to learn how to carry out a specific task. We want to cultivate a dynamic security operation where technology can be effectively deployed to maximise the efficiency, accuracy, and throughput of the baggage screening process.

Neural Guard is a dynamic technology company constantly developing Artificial Intelligence-based auto-detection solutions for the security screening market.
Cybersecurity is an effective and proportionate approach to the regulation of the aviation industry’s management of cybersecurity risk.

Our team combines industry leaders from the security, technology, and regulatory fields offering their expertise to ensure safer environments, lower operational costs and better customer experience for companies, and a better customer experience for people.

Getting more data requires spending more time and money. Maintaining it isn’t cheap either. For example, at Neural Guard we currently use some two million images. While in the automotive industry this is not considered significant, in the security market it is. Creating such a dataset requires expensive x-ray machines, real threats (e.g. guns, knives, explosives, etc.), a large variety of luggage items, and highly trained data annotators.
We look forward to working with you, to pursue our goal of a safer and more secure world.
