However, this foundation is at risk of surveillance and attack by increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals and well-funded nation states. These network connections, if unprotected, are proving to be highly vulnerable, leaving sensitive assets exposed. Threats such as shared infrastructure exposure, man-in-the-middle attacks, and metadata exposure leave agencies susceptible to a range of devastating repercussions.

My purpose is to invite a changed narrative to supplement the existing constructiveapproaches being taken today. Why a supplemental narrative/discussion? •       If 80%+ of cybersecurity issues are due to human elements, why was there not a single recommendation addressing the most important human element at all - Character. •       Because, as virtually ALL indicators attest, the problem is getting worse,... ...read more...

A typical vehicle contains over one hundred microprocessors, globally sourced with each processor running millions of lines of software code with uncertain provenance and uneven quality. Many of our adversaries wield remarkably effective hacking skills, and by its nature, the advantage in cybersecurity goes to the attacker because a defender must defend all his assets while the attacker can choose any point of attack.

Government owned satellite networks are expensive and are at a technological disadvantage compared to their commercial counterparts in regard to size, scale, and price as well as the immense amount of resources required to operate and maintain these networks.

The RF shielding material can also prevent the scanning of a sensitive asset to determine its shape.  This step is critical if the asset’s performance can be deduced by knowing its shape.  The material, with slight modification,... ...read more...

Designed for the needs of the intelligence community, this solution used advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms to track emerging patterns and trends in near real time. Analysts get an integrated dashboard that shows all open source intelligence channels. They can drill down to original OSINT information for more in-depth analysis, more readily reach conclusions about tone and... ...read more...
