It sounds like the plot to a suspenseful thriller or an entertaining tv-series but it’s really happening: a team of Dutch hackers has teamed up in order to fight digital crime. This gang of “hackers with a heart of gold” goes by the name of Zerocopter, which also sounds like a great name for a tv-show. Zerocopter’s lift-off is off to a flying start as they have raised €1.3M to further develop their security system.
The company sure picked the right time to announce the investment, as earlier this week the Dutch National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) presented a rapport that shows digital career criminals are the biggest threat to digital security in the Netherlands. Online career criminals are getting more and more professional at what they do and how they do it. Yet a lot of companies still have no idea of the precautions they should be taking to prevent themselves becoming victims of digital crime. Zerocopter has developed a permanent digital security system to prevent digital theft. Their software meets the recommendations made in the rapport.
