President Biden is taking cybersecurity seriously and realizing that cyber weakness is a threat to national security. There has been a multitude of high profile attacks recently that has escalated it’s importance.
Yesterday, the President signed an executive order entitled “Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.”
A couple of key things to note is that there are timelines for delivery of the tasks (most are within 90 days) and there is an oversight board to be set up a named the Cyber Safety Review Board (sect 5)
The US federal government has been the victim of several high profile cyber attacks in 2021
Here is a list of the 10 sections that are included in the Executive Order. We’ve added a “very brief synopsis.” To read the entire executive order, click here.
Section 1 Policy To prioritize cybersecurity for national and economic security and greater partnership with the private sector
Section 2 Removing Barriers to Sharing Threat Information Increase cyber threat reporting by IT and OT suppliers to the federal gov’t
Section 3 Modernizing Federal Government Cybersecurity. Adopt cyber security best practices
Section 4 Enhancing Software Supply Chain Security. Improve the security and integrity of all supply chain “critical software”
Section 5 Establishing a Cyber Safety Review Board. Review major cyber incidents and research and develop concrete recommendations
Section 6 Standardizing the Federal Government’s Playbook for Responding to Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities and Incidents. Standardized response processes across agencies
Section 7 Improving Detection of Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities and Incidents on Federal Government Networks. Increasing visibility into and detection of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats to agency networks
Section 8 Improving the Federal Government’s Investigative and Remediation Capabilities. Agencies and their IT service providers collect and maintain data and make it available upon request to assist in remediation efforts
Section 9 National Security Systems. adopt National Security Systems requirements that are equivalent to or exceed the cybersecurity requirements set forth in this order that are otherwise not applicable to National Security Systems. This one is not so clear???
Section 10 Definitions
It is great to see that the Federal government is finally seeing cyber security as a national security threat.
The Helix22 SDK was imagined specifically as the definitive tool for national security.
From a governmental standpoint, national defense and security is at risk if data is not protected. Also, foreign interference and espionage is more possible in an unsecure technological environment especially in terms of infrastructure. And, when it comes to the military, the vast bulk of operations has gone digital so any type of malicious attack could effect a nations overall well-being.
BLAKFX offers a full range of custom products and services including the state of the art Helix22 SDK (backed by 28 patents) that provides the most secure data encryption technology in the world.
In Math We Trust
Our products include:
- BLAKFX DNA Binding Cryptography Helix22™
- Advanced Cybersecurity & DARKHYDRA3
- On-site physical Security
- Electronic/RF Security
- Ransomware Protection
- Tactical Communications
- Quantum Computing Immunity
The new era of data security is one that requires new solutions. The era of perimeter defenses is over as it is proving impossible to keep hackers from breaching the perimeter and accessing data. Further E2E encryption based on old models of RSA cryptography will be obsolete when quantum computing becomes mainstream.
Helix22 delivers perfect security assurance due to our genius engineering team that has invented a new model for data security that required an innovative look at the problem. The approach we took was to protect the data itself. Almost all other data security products try to build a perimeter or being fanatic on user credentials. However, once the product is breached or a password is stolen, even if it is 2FA or encrypted, your firms data is in the clear.
You see, the Helix22 cryptography is embedded with the data itself through our inventive and multi-patented process of DNA BindingTM. Therefore, even if credentials are stolen the data cannot be exfiltrated. This means that all data is 100% protected regardless of the type of attack.
Another substantial advantage of Helix22, is that it protects all data whether at rest, in use or in transit. All communication apps for example, only encrypt data while in transit. Therefore, that encryption become useless for internal IT security or Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning experimentation. All data generated during these massive computing exercises is equally protected in real time. Plus, the latency period for the Helix22 is exponentially less than any other security product, so it actually contributes to faster processing times.
In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server so your private communications and transmissions remain completely top secret. Even in the event that BLAKFX were subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted content…as that is literally all we have. Helix22 also only use keys just one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique user-to-user encryption (U2U) world, there is no opportunity ever for any data leak.
The Helix22 data security SDK accomplishes the following:
- Protects all your firms data at rest, in use and in transit
- Renders ransomware threats obsolete
- Eliminates human error
- Eliminates all malicious or interior attacks
- Verifies original content i.e. minimizes the threat of impersonation attacks and deep fakes
- Reduces latency
- Installs with 5 lines of code
- Runs on any platform, network, device and in any programming language
- Provides perfect future/forward secrecy
- Delivers “zero-knowledge” encryption
- Compatible with all cloud, 3rd party and vendor services
- Is quantum ready – so there’s no need to upgrade when the time comes
- Requires no employee training
- Exceeds all gov’t and banking standards
- Meets compliance regulations
We can make this claim as the tech engineers at BLAKFX invented and patented a genuine device2device (D2D) encryption. We manage data security transmission through the truly brilliant and also patented universal Helix22 key service. The Helix22 encryption originates on your network or device, not just when the app is opened. This means, that when data arrives to our key server, it is already encrypted so all it needs to do is issue another key. Signal and Telegram cannot claim this level of security. This key will then only work with the intended device, which generates a matching key required to open the data. In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server so your communications and transmissions remain completely top secret. Even in the event that BLAKFX were subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted content…as that is literally all we have. Helix22 also only use keys just one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique device-to-device world, there is no opportunity at all for any data leak.
This same protocol just described, can be the same with all your 3rd party vendors and suppliers. It does not matter in the least what platform they are running or what device they are using or even the type of data, it is all 100% protected. We do however, strongly advise that all firms involved be utilizing Helix22 due to the nature of the data content. Helix22 can ensure that whatever data they are generating is protected as well.
Let’s take it a step further. Even if your organization were a victim of an internal attack or a victim of malicious open source downloads, there is no reason for concern. Any data that has been forwarded, downloaded, copied or saved cannot be exfiltrated. Period. We have the technology industries foremost data packets which are protected with multi-layered, military grade encryption algorithms that have already proven the ability to withstand penetration testing from MI5 and quantum computing attacks.
One final practical genius of DNA BindingTM is in that it is immediately compatible with whichever system or software you are utilizing. Therefore, any organization can forward information to another and then discuss it and there is immediate privacy.
BLAKFX is Based on Proven Success
Our founders, Robert Statica PhD and Kara Coppa, also founded Wickr, which is used by the US military and has never been hacked since its inception in 2012. The Helix22 data security SDK is several generations enhanced since then. Dr. Statica also delivered the encryption for the world’s most secure phone, Katim.
