Silobreaker Forms Cyber Partnership with Norwich University

March 4, 2015

I learned that cyber OSINT capable Silobreaker has partnered with Silobreaker. Norwich, the oldest private military college in the US, has a sterling reputation for cyber security courses and degree programs. The Silobreaker online threat intelligence product will be used in the institution’s cyber forensics classes.

Silobreaker’s cyber security product automatically collects open source information from news, blogs, feeds and social media. The system provides easy to use tools and visualizations to make sense of the content.

Kristofer Månsson, CEO and Co-Founder of Silobreaker told Beyond Search:

By offering Silobreaker as part of their studies, Norwich University is addressing the need for a more holistic approach to threat intelligence in cyber security. This partnership showcases the power of Silobreaker to provide relevant context beyond the technical parameters of a threat, hack or a new malware. Understanding the threat landscape and anticipating potential risks will unquestionably also require the analysis of geopolitics, business and world events, which often influence and prompt attacks. We are excited to continue working with Norwich University and to open up the young minds of tomorrow to the ever-evolving cyber landscape.

Silobreaker is used by more than 80 Norwich students. The university offers the product across its cyber security classes including Cyber Criminalistics, Cyber Investigation and Network Forensics. Students learn how to apply Silobreaker’s next generation system to intelligence gathering in the context of their investigations. Students are required to use the technology throughout their independent research projects.

Aron Temkin, dean of the College of Professional Schools said:

In order to maintain our excellence in cyber security research and training, we need to stay on top of the latest emerging technologies. Silobreaker is a powerful tool that is both user-friendly and flexible enough to fit within our cyber education programs.

Dr. Peter Stephenson, director of the university’s Center for Advanced Computing and Digital forensic added:

Students can get useful output quickly, and we do not have to turn a semester forensics class into a ‘How To Use Silobreaker’ session. Cyber events do not occur in a vacuum. There is context around them that often is hard to see. Silobreaker solves that. It cuts through the mass of information available on the Internet and helps our students get to the meat of an issue quickly and with a variety of ways of accessing and displaying it. This is a new way to look at cyber forensics.
