Research to Drive Innovation
Piracy, AI and the Blockchain
Internet Think Tank conducts ongoing research in a variety of cyber security fields to better
understand the dynamics of cyber attacks and the methods cyber attackers use. Through our
research we are able to devise appropriate response frameworks for organizations seeking to
enhance their security.
Dynamics of Online Piracy
Internet Think Tank contributes to fundamental research in the field of anti-piracy
as it relates to online piracy of pure information assets (music, motion pictures, print media and software).
Through our published research in recognised business journals and book contributions, we work to
improve society's ability to detect contributing factors to online piracy and how industries can take proactive
steps to reduce piracy.
The future of AI in Cyber Security
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most significant technologies that will shape
advances in cyber security. From event monitoring systems to predictive analytics,
Internet Think Tank believes research into AI will help provide more rapid
real time evaluation of cyber attacks across a wider footprint of vulnerable systems and operational assets.
AI holds the potential to not only detect cyber attacks, but to also select appropriate responses based
on well designed frameworks that thwart attacks much faster than humans can take action.
Internet Think Tank also conducts research on the blockchain, an emerging technology that introduces a novel
approach to securing transactions against fraud and manipulation over a shared network.
By using encryption techniques, blockchains have the potential to prevent piracy through innovations
such as the Open Asset Protocol, which uses digital tokens to track ownership of
tangible assets. The blockchain innovation is a promising innovation that can allow enhanced
security against transaction fraud.
