Who am I? What is this? What are we looking for?
Balusian is a company that provides IT and cybersecurity services to a variety of organizations. Our consultants are experienced and certified professionals in their fields: virtualization, Unix systems, web development, consultancy and of course cybersecurity.
A personal project
Balusian is, overall, a personal project. It came out of our interest in how technology covers, impacts and transforms a growing number of aspects of life. Our vision goes beyond computer science, it covers other scientific disciplines and social sciences.
Biotechnology, robotics, Artificial Intelligence or BMI (Brain-Machine Interfaces) solutions are entering a growing number of facets of daily lives, and they will soon become mainstream services. They will bring incredible improvements to our lives, improvements unknown to us until now.
At the same time, they will introduce new and unsuspected vulnerabilites because of our critical reliance on the new digital devices. After all, the consequences of a virus, denial of service attack or data leak can be catastrophic if they happen on the coming robots that will take care of us or the online medical devices that will keep us alive.
Our goal is to study and assess the impact that those coming services and products will have in our lives and bodies, mainly in security and privacy, in order to find new ways to control the most negative effects, and always taking into account the reality of every environment. Our vision is positive: we want technology to fit around us naturally, the best way possible.
