VANCOUVER, BC – NOVEMBER 6, 2018 – BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc. (“BIG” or “the Company”) (CSE: BIGG)(WKN: A2JSKG)(OTC: BBKCF), a leading developer and provider of blockchain and cryptocurrency search, risk-scoring and data analytics tools and investigation services, will be represented at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO’s) Science and Technology Organization lecture series IST-143 on Cyber Security Science and Engineering, in Vancouver, Canada, on November 6, 2018, by BIG’s Executive Chairman and Co‑Founder, Shone Anstey, who will deliver the keynote address on Forensic Investigation and Monitoring of Illicit Cryptocurrency Use. The event is being organized by the Information Systems Technology Panel of the NATO Science and Technology Organization.
The mission of NATO’s Science and Technology Organization (STO) is to conduct and promote cooperative research and information exchange. In particular, the STO’s Information Systems Technology (IST) Panel is mandated to advance and exchange appropriate technologies in order to provide timely, affordable, dependable, secure and relevant information, and to improve C3I (Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence) systems including a special focus on Interoperability and Cyber Security. According to the IST, there is a worldwide lack of talent with respect to cyber security, which has become an issue facing national governments while raising the question of how to reduce the shortage of cyber security experts.
BIG’s Executive Chairman, Shone Anstey, will speak to this concern, as well as to the IST’s position that any vulnerability in today’s Information Communications Technology-dependent world, regardless of its size, can be exposed and exploited. Shone is a Certified Bitcoin Professional that represents 20 years of experience building complex technologies and software within the IT industry, primarily within search, analytics, and data center operations. He has been engaged with cryptocurrency since 2012, and formerly acted as Director of Technology for a distributed Bitcoin mining pool, while developing an industrial Bitcoin mining operation for a public company.
“It’s a privilege to deliver the keynote address at this NATO lecture series,” said BIG Executive Chairman, Shone Anstey. “It’s also a timely subject to address in light of growing scrutiny and regulation around cryptocurrency use to help bring this new era of currency mainstream. At BIG we understand that investors, financial institutions and consumers are demanding the same security and accountability with cryptocurrency that they’re used to with traditional fiat currency and investment assets. That’s why we develop and provide the tools and services needed by today’s law enforcement, regulators and compliance professionals to quickly determine the risk score of wallets, and to forensically trace, track and monitor cryptocurrency transactions and associations with nefarious actors. I look forward to demonstrating for the attendees at the NATO event how BIG helps mitigate the exposure and exploitation of cryptocurrency.”
