In this Elemendar update I had been looking forward to talking about how the pandemic appears to be receding and hopefully beginning a return to a new normal. Sadly, however, the unfolding, tragic events in Ukraine have replaced this with something worse. War in Europe.
I’m not sure that it’s widely understood just how crucial Ukraine is to the world’s software. It has excellent universities and almost everyone you meet was educated as a scientist or engineer, or works as one of near 250,000 developers. This Bloomberg article gives an insight into how the software industry relies on Ukraine: The Coder Supply Chain Runs Through Ukraine.
Between 2012 and 2014 I worked for a Belarusian software company and then a Ukrainian one. Both have offices and people all over the world. I have visited Minsk, Odessa, Kharkiv and Kyiv and know former colleagues, now fleeing as refugees leaving everything they had behind or staying to fight. Everyone I met in Belarus told me that they would throw off their dictator and become European. Everyone in Ukraine told me how proud they were to have done so, and how they would become a truly European country. No return to the old USSR. We hope with all our hearts that this Russian invasion, which could destabilise the whole region fails and that Ukraine’s integrity as a sovereign, European democracy is returned as soon as possible.

Elemendar News for Feb / March
Elemendar Implements Customisable TAXII Server
Another new capability of READ. is the ability to produce ‘entity collections’. Cyber analysts often read several documents in order to understand a single threat. Until now READ. has analysed one document at a time. Allowing entity collections offers analysts pre-existing knowledge and the ability to view the graph of all combined documents in the collection. This makes it easier and faster than ever to join the dots between different threat reports.
