TopSpin Security Selected To Present on Deception Technology

MAHWAH, N.J., and HERZLIYA, Israel, April 27, 2017 — TopSpin Security, Inc., the leader in intelligent deception and detection solutions, today announced that John Cebulski, Senior Enterprise Sales Engineer, has been selected to present “Using Deception to Hunt Cyber-Attackers” at the 2017 Financial Services ISAC (FS-ISAC) Annual Summit, being held April 30-May 3 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.


Mr. Cebulski will discuss an emerging approach in fighting cybercrime — intelligent deception security, which is a proactive detection technology allowing organizations to turn the tables on attackers and expose data breaches quickly and accurately. It helps keep attackers away from organizations’ real data and facilitates detection mechanisms that identify an attack in progress with a high degree of certainty. The presentation, which is part of the Silver Solutions Showcase, is scheduled from 5 pm EDT-6 pm EDT, on Monday, May 1, in the Atlantic B conference room.

During the summit, TopSpin will also demonstrate its DECOYnet™ Intelligent Deception and Detection Platform, which is the industry’s only intelligent deception solution that offers a built-in traffic and security analysis engine — enabling highly accurate placement of mini-traps and decoys, an additional security layer through analysis and threat detection, and adaptive and flexible deception that evolves with changing network conditions. With DECOYnet, TopSpin continues to perfect its asset profiling capabilities, uniquely mapping the network by every asset and subnet to build a comprehensive deception layer for each individual network. By constantly breathing the network traffic, DECOYnet actively adapts to dynamic network conditions, including new assets and applications introduced, so the deception layer is always optimized.

DECOYnet interacts with any existing security tool, helping organizations manage and correlate security activities across multiple platforms, systems and applications. It alerts organizations when third-party tools and service pose risks, for example…

eBook sales on the slide as people switch back to paper

Want to read a book? You might head to Google Play, Amazon Kindle or the iTunes Book Store, right? Well, according to the Publishers Association, less of us are doing this. Although digital sales have increased by 6% to £1.7bn and account for 35% of total revenues, the sales of ebooks dropped 3% to £538m last year.

eBook sales on the slide as people switch back to paper

The upshot of all that is that total book sales, including the “old fashioned” physical books, have risen 6% to £3.5bn. Chief Executive, Stephen Lotinga, states that..

Last year, one of the most eye-catching figures from our statistics was that physical book sales were increasing while digital book sales dropped.

While many will debate as to whether this trend will continue, we should not ignore the fact that digital sales beyond the domestic ebook market are growing.

This is the second year running that sales of electonic books have slumped. Physical childrens books in particular are still proving a big hit, and there’s been a decline in people reading fiction books on their phone, with a 16% drop to £165m last year. Lotinga also tells us..

I wouldn’t say that the ebook dream is over but people are clearly making decisions on when they want to spend time with their screens.

There is generally a sense that people are now getting screen tiredness, or fatigue, from so many devices being used, watched or looked at in their week. [Printed] books provide an opportunity to step away from that.

eBook sales on the slide as people switch back to paper

Are you one of those people? After a day in front of your phone or a monitor, are you looking to read a book with actual, real pages instead of spending yet more time in front of your phone? Or is it just the type of screen? Perhaps we need to see more phones which have an easy-on-the-eye eInk screen, like the Hisense A2 we saw in Barcelona?

Do let me know in the comments. 🙂

  • Fitbit activity tracker explodes on users wrist.

    Fitbit activity tracker explodes on users wrist.

    ABC News  is reporting on a woman in Wisconsin who’s been the victim of another exploding device. This time it’s a fitness tracker, and happened whilst the wearer – Dina Mitchell – was sitting reading a book. The Fitbit Flex 2 caught fire and explode, causing burns to her arm. She told reporters that..

    I was literally just sitting and reading when my Fitbit exploded. It was either defective or really mad I was sitting still so long… I don’t know. Either way, It burned the heck out of my arm.

    Love that. Yes, perhaps it was angry that she wasn’t doing any exercise!? I doubt that’d be a big selling point though – keep moving or I’ll go bang! 🙂 Like Speed with Sandra Bullock, but on a budget ? 🙂

    Dina quickly pulled the device off and threw it onto the floor where it continued to smoulder. She had pieces of plastic and rubber removed from the second degree burn to her arm shortly after.

    Fitbit activity tracker explodes on users wrist.

    Fitbit have responded to the incident, stating that they are “extremely concerned” and are looking into the issue. Currently they see “no reason” for people to stop wearing the Flex 2.

    This is yet another reminder of the possible dangers of those “little explosive devices” we all carry around with and some sleep with.

  • FCC Chairman Pai Takes First Steps to Reverse Net Neutrality

    Ajit Pai, Chairman of the FCC, today outlined his plan to remove the Title II classification from broadband services and kill off net neutrality laws put in place by the Commission two years ago. In a sometimes fiery and heavily partisan statement, Pai suggested that the previous Commission made an incredible mistake by re-classifying broadband under Title II and installing bright line rules that could not be broken. Pai claims these changes reduced investment in infrastructure by billions of dollars, prevented the formation of more than 100,000 jobs, and reduced choice for Americans. Pai will publish a Notice of Prosed Rulemaking on April 27 with the full context of his plan, allowing the public a chance to view it before it is adopted by the Commission. Among his goals are to re-classify broadband as a Title I information service and return the FCC’s regulatory behavior to the “light-touch” environment he says the internet enjoyed between 1996 and 2015. Pai suggests this path will improve internet speeds, create jobs, foster innovation, and protect consumers’ privacy. “We need rules that focus on growth and infrastructure investment, rules that expand high-speed internet access everywhere and give Americans more online choice, faster speeds, and more innovation. And we are going to deliver,” said Pai. Some industry groups and companies were quick to commend Pai for the new direction he is taking the FCC, while a number of other businesses vowed to fight Pai’s agenda as fiercely as possible.
