CROSSWORD SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH COVENTRY UNIVERSITY TO EXPLORE COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITIES IN TARGET-CENTRIC NETWORK MONITORING

Crossword Cybersecurity Plc (“Crossword”) the ISDX listed tech transfer company, is to partner with Coventry University to jointly explore commercial opportunities leveraging research conducted at Coventry into target centric network monitoring in cyberspace.

Dr Siraj Ahmed Shaikh, Reader in Cyber Security at Coventry University and his team has conducted extensive research in the area of threat attribution and monitoring using advanced Bayesian analytics. The approach taken provides a highly effective early warning system when networks are under threat and are widely applicable, particularly in detecting and responding rapidly to insider threats and advanced evasion techniques. Crossword is working exclusively with Dr Shaikh’s team to develop their work into a highly scalable platform to meet today’s cyber security challenges. 

Tom Ilube, Crossword’s CEO said “Coventry’s research is extremely compelling and we believe it will enable companies to react to time sensitive cyber incidents in a more efficient and cost effective way. Coventry’s applied research into Bayesian inference allows us to bring this exciting area of analysis into the cyber domain”

“We are delighted to be working with Crossword Cybersecurity on this exciting venture. Our research has the potential to significantly enhance early estimation of threat indicators for cyber defence, national security and critical infrastructure protection where defences rely on sensing. Working with Crossword would mean effective access to the market with the right product.” commented Dr Siraj Shaikh, Reader in Cyber Security at Coventry University.
