Andrey Suzdaltsev, CEO and co-founder of Brightside AI, detailed: “Phishing attacks are up 47% in 2022 compared to 2021, and the advent of ChatGPT has personalised these threats and taken hackers’ capabilities to a new level. Phishing is like marketing. The more data the attacker has on a victim, the better he can target and convert with his fraudulent message. Using Social Links OSINT infrastructure, Brightside will be able to show its users with up to 100% accuracy what threats their digital footprint poses to their security. We’re excited about our strategic partnership with Social Links because it enables us to enhance our solution and, at the same time, allows us to apply the SL offering (or API) to the cybersecurity market in a unique way”.

Ivan Shkvarun, co-founder of Social Links shared: “We are investing $1M in Brightside’s infrastructure because it offers a powerful and innovative solution to combat the problem of human error in cybersecurity. Reducing human error is essential because no one can guarantee zero risk of cyberattacks, especially in a scenario where new AI phishing developments are on the rise and present a major threat to online security. That’s why we’re not only investing in Brightside’s infrastructure but also supporting it with our data extraction solutions from more than 500 open sources. We understand the significance of harnessing technology to make a safer world.”
