Resecurity®, a Los Angeles-based cybersecurity provider protecting major Fortune 500 corporations worldwide, showcased its cyber threat intelligence (CTI) solutions to participants at the Korea Police World Expo (KPEX) 2022 held in Incheon, South Korea. The solutions of interest to attendees from law enforcement agencies (LEA) and private sector businesses were focused on dark web monitoring and human intelligence (HUMINT) tools. These tools enable collection threat data to profile bad actors their tactics.
The dark web, an untraceable area of the internet that traditional search engines do not index, where individuals mask their identities through powerful anonymization tools has become home to innumerable hidden marketplaces, communities, groups, and forums used to traffic illegal goods and services (from child pornography, drugs, and weapons to tools for malware and ransomware distribution). The consequences of cybercrime originating from the dark web impact nearly every industry and cost the global economy as much as $600 billion and about 0.8 percent of global GDP. Security industry experts project that companies around the world will incur costs and lost revenue amounting to more than $5 trillion over the next five years due to cyberattacks.
As a geographic neighbor to North Korea, a hotbed for hacker groups, South Korea, along with its advanced technology sector, is a major target for cyber-attacks. The region is known for activity of nation-supported groups such as Lazarus which are focused on data theft, espionage and large-scale financial crimes including heists from major cryptocurrency exchanges. Resecurity® provides unique Human Intelligence (HUMINT) capabilities in the region recognized for its reach and access, and comprehensive investigative and intelligence services to target Dark Web actors and sophisticated cyberespionage groups. During the year, the company arranged numerous digital forensics & incident response (DFIR) projects for large enterprise and government clients in APAC region to assist them with post-incident procedures, as well as preventive measures via proactive cyber threat intelligence to enhance their cybersecurity posture. South Korea remains one of the strategic markets in APAC region for Resecurity® with a rapid growth across critical verticals including technology, e-commerce, energy, and government organizations.
Marking its 4th anniversary this year, Korea Police World Expo is a top destination for the security industry with 150,000 members of law enforcement attending. The latest products and technologies in the security and safety industries are showcased.
The company successfully showcased its award-winning cyber threat intelligence platform (CTIP) – Resecurity® Context which is designed to assist law enforcement and a portfolio of products for effective digital risk monitoring (DRM) of the enterprise digital ecosystem.
