The “virtuous” behaviours: a first step towards security

By Digitance 


COVID-19 emergency has forced governments, in many countries around the world, to impose drastic measures of social distancing. One of the main consequences of this decision was the immediate increase in the use of ICT technologies, in order to fill the inconveniences imposed by this distancing.

For example, educational institutions have replaced face-to-face classrooms with remote teaching. Companies immediately began to use the “Smart Working” methods in a massive way. The ordinary citizens, forced into their homes, have used video communication as an alternative to direct socialization.

Digitance believes that human factor always remains the fundamental element in every activity, in every process. Its centrality is indisputable.

Human behaviours are a crucial element in every analysis, in every situation.

The massive use of ICT tools, in the past few months, has brought public attention to the increasingly frequent and pressing actions of hackers who, taking advantage of the situation, have become progressively aggressive.

Apart from any technological disquisition, a “first line of defence” against hacking actions can undoubtedly be represented by some “virtuous” personal behaviours towards tools and technology applications.

First, in the use of “social media”, we should never describe our habits, our lifestyles and, above all, we would never talk about our possible absences from home and from office. This is information that hackers would know how to exploit.

We should learn how to build “strong” passwords, wisely using the full range of available characters, including special ones. We should never use full names connected to us and not even places or dates.

We should create our own personal password rotation policy. We would try not to keep the same password for more than a month on the same application and create our own archive of passwords and rotation criteria, which we will keep outside of our PCs, smartphones, tablets, etc.

As far as possible, we should avoid using free email services, web conferencing, VoIP, etc. … the so-called “no-cost economy” does not cope with security. Free platforms are the preferred target of hackers, who take advantage of the intrinsic weakness of the platforms themselves.

As soon as possible, we should equip ourselves with a system for encrypting our data, our hard disks, in order to decrease their vulnerability.

These are just a few small tips, which can however start to define a virtuous behavioural model, that could be a robust base to start building – with the help of a specialized company such as Digitance Group – a real Security Management System.

The Art of Cryptocurrency

Crypto Currencies have recently gained enormous popularity amongst the general public. With each passing day, more and more companies are radically accepting crypto currencies in their payment systems, paving way for an economic revolution. However, the average consumer’s understanding of what are also known as cryptocurrencies is limited.
Many financial analysts can explain what a cryptocurrency is or how a blockchain works.  But for art dealers, the most relevant question is: what do cryptocurrencies have to do with the art world?
Albeit quietly, art business is rapidly adapting to the new “gold rush”.
On June 14, 2018,  Āto Gallery sold a painting for 150 Bitcoin – equivalent to around $1.25 million. On October 11th, Christie’s announced that their sale of the Barney A. Ebsworth Collection in November will the first auction to incorporate blockchain technology. This marks a huge shift towards the application of blockchain technology given the influence Christie’s has as a major auction house. Austrian Museum of Applied Art/Contemporary Art is the first museum to buy art using Bitcoins.
Tech entrepreneurs envision the Blockchain networks they create will expand the base of art buyers beyond the current stable of purchasers.
Blockchain in the art market also promise that, for instance, within the context of auctioneering, there will never be a concern as to whether a potential bidder has funds to actually obtain a piece she has bought. The transparency a Blockchain network brings to the ledgers of its users ensures a punter must have sufficient funds to transact any business through the network.
Blockchain can actually democratize fine art investment, improving provenance and reducing forgery, and creating a more ethical way to pay artists. The digital currencies are most appropriate for international buyers who prefer to “cut out the middleman”. This approach attracts Bitcoin “billionaires” who need to translate the value of their digital hordes into physical assets.
The art world is slow to change, especially to a concept as difficult to grasp as new terminology like cryptocurrencies, tokens, coins, blockchain. But for sure we will hear more and more about it in the next few times as well as new applications for blockchain technology pop out.
[11 HellHeaven] Art Gallery is ready for cryptos! Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin CASH (BCH), Dai (DAI), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), USD Coin (USDC) are currently accepted, according to the buyer’s preference.
