Crypsis

 

a genus of annual herbs of the family Gramineae. The stems are extended at the base, and the leaf blades are flat or longitudinally folded. The inflorescence is a spike-like panicle, surrounded by sheaths of the upper leaves. The single-flowered spikelets are bisexual and laterally compressed. There are ten to 15 species, distributed in the temperate and subtropical belts of Eurasia and in North and tropical Africa. The USSR has five species, growing in the southern and, less frequently, middle belt of the European portion, in the Caucasus, in the southern part of Western Siberia, and in Middle Asia. The plants grow in salt marsh meadows, in salt marshes, along sandy riverbanks, and amid pebbles. Sometimes they form a dense cover. The most common species are C. aculeata and C. schoenoides, which are eaten by geese, ducks, and other domesticated animals.

"Depending on the nature of an incident, reporting requirements for manufacturers vary but can be far less stringent than some other industries," adds Brendan Rooney, Director at The Crypsis Group, a digital forensics and incident response firm, noting that, despite handling just under 500 incidents that required forensics in the past year, these events are often not made public.

Crypsis is a primary defense strategy for cephalopods (Hanlon & Messenger 1996), therefore, embryos encompassing a larger area at lower density can potentially increase their survival.

For example, Crypsis also has a suite of "pre-breach" risk management capabilities in which they have the ability, in a contained environment, to actively exploit a client's network to gain a foothold and then move laterally throughout the organization to identify areas that are vulnerable to compromise.

Crypsis is a type of camouflage where it mixes with the background color and reduces the risk of being detected by a predator, this is achieved by matching the body color to the background color or using offensive color patterns that break the contour of the body and creates false lines (Merilaita, 1998).
