"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat.
Por años, los fabricantes han estado tratando de optimizar sus procesos y cadenas de suministro asociadas creando mercados, intercambios estandarizados, y sistemas monolíticos. En muchos casos, estas soluciones no logran su objetivo, lo que da origen a procesos fragmentados y frágiles, y en los que compartir datos es complicado.
Blockchain, la tecnología que está detrás de Bitcoin y otras criptomonedas, puede resolver estos problemas. Compartir información mediante una red distribuida confiable con una lógica de negocio integrada ofrece muchos beneficios al sector manufacturero, especialmente cuando se combina con las comunidades de IoT y de IA.
Vea este webinar titulado Blockchain y Manufactura: Una Manera Inteligente de Elevar la Eficiencia en las Cadenas de Suministro de Semiconductores y Electrónica, conducido por Nelson Petracek, director de Tecnología de TIBCO Software. Entre los temas que se abordan se incluye:
• Blockchains empresariales
• Casos de uso en el sector manufactur

Blockchain is no longer just some mysterious technology built for Bitcoin. Organizations are using blockchain technology to solve today’s fast-moving business challenges and prepare for what the future brings. Read this report to learn how you can benefit from blockchain.
The pace of disruption has never been greater. New entrants are removing customer pain points and gaining market share faster than ever before. Names such as Airbnb, Uber, Bitcoin, and Netflix have upset business models seemingly overnight.
Die Geschwindigkeit der Disruption war niemals höher. Neue Wettbewerber entfernen Schwachstellen bei Kunden und erzielen
Marktanteile schneller als je zuvor. Namen wie Airbnb, Uber, Bitcoin und Netflix haben Geschäftsmodelle offensichtlich über Nacht auf
den Kopf gestellt.
What is ransomware?
Ransomware is a malicious software designed to hold a user’s files (such as healthcare records, financial contracts, manufacturing blueprints, software code, and other documents) for ransom by encrypting them and demanding the user pay a fee (often in Bitcoin) to decrypt them.
How ransomware works
Attackers initiate attacks using an array of tactics. Ransomware infections often first begin with an exploit kit — which are software kits designed to identify software vulnerabilities on endpoints and then upload and execute malicious code on the endpoint.
Although variants of ransomware behave differently — there are many ways that Cisco can help. Download this whitepaper today to find out more.
Threat actors increasingly look toward illicit cryptomining as an easy source of income.
Cryptomining is the production of virtual currency, also known as cryptocurrency, such
as Bitcoin and Monero. It comes at the expense of system performance and power
consumption. Moreover, threat actors are infiltrating networks to use their victims’
computer resources to do this work for them. In this white paper, you will learn how to
defend your organization from illicit cryptomining with the Cisco® security portfolio.

hile Bitcoin took a bit of a beating in August 2018, it did little
to dampen interest in the obviously volatile cryptocurrency
market. Bitcoin lost 20 percent of its value in just two weeks in
August, according to some reports1
, and yet there appears to be
substantial optimism in the currency. According to one report2
, there were
96 new crypto hedge funds launched in the first seven months of 2018 and
when the Turkish Lira plummeted 20 percent in August 2018, there was a
surge in Bitcoin trading3
. Cryptocurrency is clearly here to stay and while that
may whet the appetite of brave investors, it’s also a magnet for crime.
Unsurprisingly perhaps, hackers are targeting4
exchanges but what many businesses and individuals may not
realize is that there is serious money to be made in actually
performing admin functions for the currencies themselves.
Called cryptomining, it can be big business. Some reports5
suggested that profits from mining have hit over $4 billion
For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing.
Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities.
