[caption id="attachment_2095" align="aligncenter" width="528"] Cyber Security, Social Media, You.[/caption] The Panama Papers as released this past week are a really huge data dump, in fact one much larger in scale than that of Wikileaks, and the largest to date in history. The project that resulted in this massive public disclosure, was essentially a cyber security lapse leading to a breach.  Following the breach, data exfiltration was executed through leveraging a long known critical failure in the operating system and email servers that were used by the law firm, Mossack Fonseca. Not only are the Panama Papers a stunning example of a hack that resulted in massive  data exfiltration; thus consequently leading to a global reputation breach. But they are also representative of a slow to change cyber security environment in…

  co·nun·drum kəˈnəndrəm/ noun noun: conundrum; plural noun: conundrums a confusing and difficult problem or question. "one of the most difficult conundrums for the experts" This is the conundrum of the digital age. One one hand executives of a company will be the first to state they think their systems are secure, and if there are any problems they are small. or Maybe they think their information, data and business relationships are not important to hackers because, "too small", "not on radar screen", or "we have nothing worth taking." But both of these are clearly conundrums: The first is pretty basic, if you think you are secure but have not brought in outsiders to test your systems and people and facilities, then how do you know? The second is also…

Many people must feel the 2015 holiday break could not have arrived soon enough what with terrorism, crazy weather and other events that get covered rightly or wrongly in social media.

There are specific tactics and strategies for understanding how live events unfold in social media and these can be instructive to the general public about what you are seeing and when, during events like these past weeks that we have all experienced.

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…

Reputation Control for Kids by Social Media, Search Results

In Digijaks daily course of business with reputation management we come across a lot of people (adults) who have seen their life get turned upside down because of something appearing in search results that negatively affect them. This happens so much, and so often it has created a whole industry to deal with it. Search results leading to problems to people happen for many reasons. I recently wrote about this problem on the Huffington Post as it relates to adults. But this same correlation exists for kids, for families and the same problems may arise, but with lifelong implications. Imagine being an 11 year old who innocently posts a picture or a quote or a poem or a location, thinking nothing of it. Fast forward 6 years to college applications.…

[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…

Reputation Control. Cybersecurity. Recent OPM Hacks and You.

Reputation. Is hard to get, hard to maintain, hard to control; especially in an era of hacking by governments and criminals alke. Cybersecurity is something many people long put off as a back burner decision, or lower funded priority, but in actuality is a critical need, now at the forefront of many leaders' thinking due to the sheer number and audacity of the hacks from 2013 forward. There is a distinct triangulation between reputation control and cyber security and search results. The more things get hacked, the more information flows onto websites, both for sale, and for free, and the more the search engines index these results. Digijaks’ CEO Alan W Silberberg has written about this triangulation before as it relates to cyber security and how we all need to…

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…

When it comes to reputation management and control, there are many techniques that can be employed, depending on the person, the brand, or the situation. What works in a digital crisis environment does not always translate to a long term digital branded environment. The same is true in reverse. An older article from 2013 examined this correlation and there has been a ton of blog posts and other material written about it, but still very few understand or practice this type of specific tactical methodology to achieve their long term strategic goals for search and or social media. Here is an example from my own search results, searching for my name. Note in order: 1. Twitter 2. Linkedin 3. Huffington Post (As I am a blogger and have a byline)…
