Portugal Tech Startup Helps Consumers Fight Cyber Crime

It was 2008 when two friends, Rui Ribeiro and Pedro Fortuna, were asking themselves why internet browsing was so vulnerable, with almost no real security despite the obvious dangers plaguing our online activities. At the time, they were focused on fighting click-fraud in advertising campaigns, and couldn’t help but notice just how easy it would be to change the code behind browsing. Improvising, they came up with their own solution that became so successful, they released it as JScrambler. Today their product helps thousands of applications defend themselves against cyber attacks.

Why the Cyber-Criminals are Winning the Fight of Good vs. Evil

It’s become a regular habit now of when I go to any event, whether it’s an outing with friends, a family get-together, or any conversation really, and they ask what I do and I tell them I work in cybersecurity, that the conversation then goes one way.

They always say: “oh that must be interesting” and then they ask “What do you think of [insert latest breach here]?” In the recent months, it’s been “What do you think of Equifax?” I used to go into some rant about how big of a colossal screw-up it was, but I could tell about half way through my rant that I started to lose them because I started using terminology and phrases they weren’t familiar with.

Justice minister, US politicians discuss fight against cyber crime

“At the meetings I raised the topic that, since cyber crime has emerged as a global kind of crime which causes immense damage, then shouldn’t we draw up a list of countries supporting cyber crime just like the list of countries supporting terrorism,” Reinsalu said after the meetings with head of the committees on the judiciary of both houses of the U.S. Congress.

“To fight against impunity in cyberspace, awareness of the problem on the political level is necessary along with strong international cooperation, including cooperation on the other side of the Atlantic,” the Estonian minister said.
