The awards are in recognition of our work developing new artificial intelligence and analytics capabilities for investigation of cryptocurrency incidents.

Ben Azvine BT, Head of Security Futures Practice says: “Jonathan’s research into the use of machine learning for classifying bitcoin transactions helped simplify and shorten the investigation of suspicious cryptocurrency transactions.”

Tim Whitley, BT MD Applied Research says: “This is a great example of applied research to protect us and our customers from new forms of cyberattacks. Nexus technology, developed within BT Labs, was successfully used by our Security investigations team to help identify criminals behind a ransomware attack.”
