Covid-19. Coronavirus. Cybersecurity. That is a lot of words beginning with C. Unfortunately, as the Covid-19 or Coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe in March 2020, we are also seeing massive increase in cybersecurity threats multiplying as well. While China, Italy, Iran, South Korea and other countries have all been slammed with the pandemic crisis, they have also been slammed with hackers trying to take advantage of the situation. I have given many speeches around the world about cybersecurity. Anyone who has heard me speak has also undoubtedly heard me talk about cyber hygiene. There are many parallels with healthcare and cybersecurity. One is proper hygiene. If there is any common lesson to everyone around the world, it is the importance of clean hands, not touching your face, using sanitizer or…

**Excerpt from a talk by Digijaks CEO Alan W. Silberberg at the 2016 GEOINT Symposium.** When you think of Cyber Security you probably think about your iphone getting hacked, or your email, or your companies servers, or your credit card, or bank card or health care, or banking, or government information plus so many others... But did you ever stop to think about how a huge chunk of all the data populating all those things actually gets there? Not in the sense of how Google asks prospective employees to describe how the internet works. But close. Think Space. Satellites are massive growth industry, for both government and business alike. We have scaled globally from a situation 20 years ago where only a handful of countries could afford to mount in…

BAM!  There it is. Right in your face one morning when you check your social feed as news. That nasty little something that someone, a bot, or a person, or maybe both left for you overnight. It is a digital take down. A bad blog post. A social media meme that is being unanswered or purposely pumped up to discredit you, your company or organization or your brand. Or maybe it is a false allegation. Or paid fake bad reviews that your competitors put up. Face it. The Internet is a hostile place for your reputation and your brand, whether that is personal, corporate or government. The control and management of your reputation start and end with you. As we enter 2015, it is worth paying attention to, in fact…

Happy Holidays. It is, as is so commonly mentioned in the media: "That Time of Year Again." Yup. Packages. Shiny New Things. Cool Toys for the Kids and kid-adults alike. It is also the time of year of increased cyber crime attempts aimed at retailers. Add also the time of year when more families and organizations introduce new varieties of malware, ad-malware, viruses, worms, bad bots and devices that phone "home" into our homes, workplaces and civic spaces. https://twitter.com/IdeaGov/status/668911020937580544?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw How? Because many devices are coming pre-loaded with malware. How many parents look into the workings of a cheap tablet before handing it off to the kids? How many people are checking new apps to see the permissions being requested on those new devices and old ones too? How many companies are…

[caption id="attachment_2095" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Cyber Security, Social Media, You.[/caption] Cybersecurity used to be be the geek's eagle's nest. it was hard to understand, hard to get to, hard to see the impact and need often times. If there was a CIO or CISO, he/she would not be in the board room too often, and usually the budgets were the first to go in any budget change environment. But the cycle switched. Now we are in the opposite cycle. The CIO and CISO are ruling the roost and commanding serious budgets and attention. But being missed in all the excitement is this: The Crossover from pure cyber crime to real world crime from the same instance. It is safe to say, times have changed. Now - Cybersecurity has become a word…

As the CEO of a cyber security and reputation company, I have to admit to not being surprised by the recent successful hacking and penetration of the US Government. While the scope of the recent events is most definitely shocking, myself and others have been researching, writing about it and trying to push and pull officials to focus on the whole set of threats, not just the known ones, and not just the data hardening ones. This recent set of hacking and penetration successes were definitely done by a Nation State, China in most probability. But guess what? The intrusion was apparently found by a Vendor doing a sales pitch to the US Government, and not by the billions of dollars of hardened equipment or custom platforms designed to stop…

Wealth. We all want it, work for it and strive for it throughout lives and careers. Reputation. We all have one. It us up to us to define it, scale it and defend it. Which one is more valuable? Which one brings more of the other? This is a two sided question. To some people, money is everything. To others, their reputation is everything, with money or without. While most people might reflexively think that money is more important, others will emphatically state that reputation management is paramount. Some recent studies weigh in on the side of reputation. Reputation expert Michael Fertik recently weighed in on the issue in the UK's Guardian Paper. Digijaks CEO Alan W. Silberberg feels that money and reputation are completely intertwined; and that this effectively…
