Define: Early warning system?
An early warning system can be implemented as a chain of information communication systems and comprises sensors, event detection and decision subsystems. They work together to forecast and signal disturbances that adversely affect the stability of the physical world, providing time for the response system to prepare for the adverse event and to minimize its impact.

CyberOwl develops an innovative early warning system for attacks through real-time monitoring of high-value targets for malicious behavior. The technology, based on research shortlisted for the Lloyd’s Science of Risk Prize 2015, is aimed at addressing the challenges of increasingly anonymous and persistent threats to rapidly-expanding global networks, particularly in the wake of Smart Cities and the Internet of Things.
The system raises early warning on network assets for possible undesirable activity, by applying a Bayesian-based framework to systematically analyze indicators associated with early stages of such activity. This approach dramatically reduces the processing overheads of monitoring.
The benefits to the security operation include scalability to networks exceeding 1 billion devices, providing earlier visibility of risk and improving prioritization and decision-making in deploying countermeasures. CyberOwl is developing its minimum viable product and is looking for two or three strategic industry design partners for validation, verification, and further development.
The ideal design partner would provide access to real-world security problems in a large network, high-volume data environment. CyberOwl was founded on 2016 and is headquartered in London, England..
Giant Gray builds multi-sensor, artificial cognitive neurolinguistics software that provides enhanced safety, security, and operational efficiency to businesses and government agencies across complex physical environments – from sprawling corporate campuses and remote oil and gas operations to ports and public transportation systems, and global enterprise networks of data. The patented, adaptive, and self-learning algorithms of Giant Gray technology “see” anomalies often hidden in oceans of data, bringing to light actionable insights with an intelligence that is anything but artificial.
In short, Giant Gray helps dramatically improve business operational awareness and incident response for its customers – as well as prevent costly interruptions and breakdowns – through its Graydient technology platform with applications in industrial (SCADA/ICS), physical security and surveillance, and cybersecurity environments. Most data analytics technology is challenging to deploy, expensive to use and maintain, confusing to understand, and limited to identifying known problems in a particular domain.
Giant Gray’s patented technology reduces costs and simplifies usage and maintenance by teaching itself from observing data – and it excels at detecting the unexpected and providing improved context by correlating various, disconnected data sources. These real-time insights allow customers to make operational adjustments before early-warning signals grow into true incidents that impact safety, security, and business operations.
Graydient stands apart from traditional analytics with its artificial cognitive neurolinguistics approach to machine learning, meaning it creates a custom language to describe the data from scratch and is not limited to primitive, baseline behavior models from the start. This is the Giant Gray difference.
We see it.. .
Patriot One Technologies
Patriot One Technologies aims to directly address the very real and growing Active Threat phenomena which have become a significant force for shaping research in weapons detection. Since the 1970’s many parts of the world have experienced ongoing increases in acts of international terrorism, with increasing numbers of domestic Active Shooter incidents occurring with disturbing frequency.
In response, Patriot One and a respected university-led research team have developed the basis for portable devices and software solutions to assist military and civilian security personnel in the detection of concealed weapons. The technology, which is intended to be placed in key access points, utilizes radio wave emissions to safely target, identify and notify of concealed threat potential through software recognition of specific wavelength patterns.
Early warning is the key to effective deployment of timely countermeasures, and Patriot One is commercializing its PATSCAN CMR technology as an automated alert system capable of covertly screening moving individuals for on-body concealed weapons (handguns, knives, grenades, explosive vests, etc.).. .
