Key takeaways

1) Many companies are adopting the “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS) model to sell their tech, including vendors on the Dark Web who aim to push criminal technologies such as ransomware.

2) No matter how good we are at stopping or preventing cyber threats, they are still going to happen and especially in innovative ways over time. The key lies in stopping them before they occur.

This week on WealthTech Unwrapped, Ned catches up with his long-time friend, Damian Bierman, Founding Partner & MD of Asia-Pac, Blackwired Pte Ltd. They discuss cyber security, the dark web, and how technological advancements could anticipate security threats even before they are conceived.

When it comes to cyber security, Damian believes that no matter how good we are at stopping or preventing them, cyber threats are still going to cause problems and in more innovative ways, thanks to lower barriers to entry. To add salt to wounds, cyber insurance may not cover every vulnerability without charging a premium due to a lack of data.

This is why it is important to remain one step ahead and Damian hopes to do so with his efforts in Cyber Threat intelligence.
