Kymatio is a new concept of cybersecurity that incorporates the human factor to the technology, reaching the alignment of the protection of the information assets with the well-being of employees, fully incorporating the information security in the Corporate Social Responsibility. It is a solution that offers organizations the means to benefit:
- The well-being of the people that form the team.
- The protection of the asset information of the entity.
The proposal of Kymatio is to help organizations prevent situations of risk associated with internal human resources - Insider, providing the capacity to deactivate the triggers that can lead to security incidents. Considering a GRC (Governance, Risk & Compliance) model, Kymatio provides information for decision making (Governance), offers the internal risk point of view and the possibility to prevent it (Risk) and, consequently, the fulfilment of internal and external regulations regarding protection of the organization's asset information (Compliance).
The objective is, through the integration of innovative psychological and technological tools, to identify potencial risks and points of friction to work through them. This way, we reach the most favorable situation for the members of the organization with respect to their personal characteristics and situations and, for that, reaching a major alignment with the corporate objectives.
Cybersecurity is traditionally focus on the defence against external threats, existing a total lack of it in the internal scope of the organizations. The actual solutions of the market are techno-centric, without having in consideration people, only as a threat.
Kymatio works on the human factor. Focusing on this, Kymatio has in consideration people as sources of information (Human Firewalls) and as a valuable asset to manage and protect.
What is the situation?
The technology is absolutely essential in the day to day professional, and yet it has advanced and evolved in the defense against the external threats, the internal scope has been left unattended.
The current business environment is marked by digitization, and has in the area of cybersecurity growing and diverse internal risks that demand, to avoid them, support in prevention and, in a novel way, in prediction.
- Current reactive actions
- Damage produced
- Lack of awareness
- The Need for Disruptive Technology

What do Organizations do?
Today efforts are focused on working on the early detection of potential harmful activities.
In almost all cases, the response of the companies is subsequent to the incident and in any case is limited to reactive actions of minimization of damages.
- Use external defense tools
- Invest in reactive detection
- Acquiring DLPs (Reactive)
- Assume there are gaps
- Not having preventive measures
- Not having predictive measures
- Internal Threat Model Misstatements (Security Policy)
What does Kymatio offer?
Kymatio is based on paradigms of Big / Smart Data and Machine Learning strongly powered by a powerful psychological-based approach to the identification of departments and personnel where the internal risk deactivation protocols have to be applied.
It is necessary that companies adopt a proactive attitude in the prevention of internal risks. Employee collaboration is key to success and can only be achieved if people are offered a clear benefit.
- Psychological Disruptive Approach

The traditional point of view in the field of cyber security is presented as Prevention VS Reaction. The current solutions have a techno-centric character, taking into account people only as a threat. The Kymatio vision rests on a more advanced paradigm: Prediction and Deactivation. The latest trends in intelligence go through searching through information in […]
In the 2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index, IBM found that 60% of all attacks were carried out by insiders. Of these attacks, three-quarters involved malicious intent, and one-quarter involved inadvertent actors.
