    Quoscient helps to analyze, investigate and respond to cyber-threats

    QuoScient helps to analyze, investigate and respond to cyber-threats Attackers are devious… During the current health crisis, they are going after health institutions and hospitals. They don’t basically care that they are doing damage to people who have already health problems.
    Ioannis Bizimis, Co-Founder QuoScient
      
    The FounderIn this interview, we are talking to Ioannis Bizimis (https://www.linkedin.com/in/ioannis-bizimis-6423527/, https://twitter.com/defense_active), the Co-Founder, CFO, CRO, and  CISO of QuoScient.
    Ioannis has been an Investment Manager, project lead with Dow Jones, with MarkIt, an employee of Deutsche Bank and other well-regarded companies. He has a lot of experience and with this experience, he started to set up QuoScient.
     
    One of the biggest strategies [of hackers] is to come into your network and stay there and install as many backdoors as they can. They will use them when they need it.

    It costs hackers just a few hundred Dollars or Euros to build up an attack campaign. The effort on the other side is thousands, sometimes millions to understand this kind of campaign.

    The StartupQuoScient (https://www.quoscient.io/, https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/quoscient)  is a cybersecurity startup, which recently split into three parts to better pursue their respective activities. Two of those entities are still headquartered in Frankfurt, one in Columbia, Maryland (close to Baltimore). They basically split along their business lines:
    QuoLab Technologies – Defense Technology https://quolab.com/QuoSec – Security Consulting https://www.quosec.net/QuoIntelligence – Cyber Threat Intelligence https://quointelligence.eu/ 
    [A company] first must understand what their most critical assets are and what are the [cyber] risks to those assets.
    Ioannis Bizimis, Co-Founder QuoScient
     Venture Capital FundingQuoScient has just raised venture capital. They may be looking at another funding round in the fall of 2020. If you want to keep posted, reach out to us.
     
    Threats can not only come from the outside. Capable hackers can also send you someone, pretending to work for you as contractor. … they do this professionally.

    Energy Robots provides Software for semi-autonomous Robots

    Energy Robots provides Software for semi-autonomous RobotsWe provide a full software stack, which also makes the robot move …
    Dorian Scholz, CEO and Co-Founder Energy Robotics
     The FounderDuring this interview, we are talking to Dr. Dorian Scholz (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dorian-scholz-3514a8b3/) CEO and Co-founder of Darmstadt based robotics startup Energy Robotics (https://www.energy-robotics.com/). We talk to him in a remote interview, recorded in May 2020. Dorian is already a long time robotics fan, who has been working for more than 15 years in robotics, even participating in the robotics soccer world cup with the team Darmstadt Dribblers (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3jFWB-VP6bFcIFtb-czCcQ). Energy robotics is also a startup, spun off TU Darmstadt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technische_Universit%C3%A4t_Darmstadt). The Rhine-Main-based startup offers software to make robots operate autonomously, as well as enable them to be operated remotely, in case this is needed. They are called “robotics”, but they don’t build robots or any hardware.
     
    We are providing a very easy user interface to program “missions” for the robots.

    The StartupThe startup Energy Robotics helps to inspect remote places on a regular based. The Darmstadt-based startup offers software to make robots operate autonomously, as well as enable them to be operated remotely, in case this is needed. There are very remote places, running semi-autonomously e.g. platforms to drill for oil and gas (https://www.offshore-technology.com/features/inside-the-first-fully-automated-offshore-platform/). Nonetheless, these places need regular inspections e.g. gas leaks, which can be performed by robots with the Energy Robotics software, on different software platforms.
     
    The robots record automatically the pictures and data on its automated round.
    Dorian Scholz, CEO and Co-Founder Energy Robotics
     
    Venture Capital FundingEnergy Robotics is currently looking for investors for their seed round, for one million Euros.
