10.6 Million of MGM’s Customer Data Records Leaked After Breach

Hackers Leak Data
10.6 million customer data records were published on a hacker’s forum this week. The hotel chain MGM was breached last year and notified individuals affected afterwards. Personal information contained names, contact information and addresses of many high-profile individuals travelling for business.

“Last summer, we discovered unauthorized access to a cloud server that contained a limited amount of information for certain previous guests of MGM Resorts,” MGM told ZDNet. “We are confident that no financial, payment card or password data was involved in this matter.”

Personal information should be protected by multiple safeguards. Encryption is one important tool. When encrypted personal information is stolen, the encryption must be broken before the records can be accessed and distributed. Powerful computers over time and quantum computers can crack traditional RSA encryption.

IronCAP is a quantum-safe encryption solution. Even if personal information is stolen, when encrypted by IronCAP the data will be inaccessible. Be protected even in the case of a data breach or hack.

Coming Soon IronCAP X Product Could Have Saved AIG $6M in Cyber-Insurance Payout!

Jeff Stone at CyberScoop reported that Insurance company AIG is responsible to reimburse a $6M loss to a client using their cyber-insurance. The client SS&C Technology was fooled by hackers in 2016, who sent spoofed emails pretending to be a legitimate supplier asking for payment. AIG denied the claim at first. The issue went to federal court and was ruled in SS&C’s favor.

These types of attacks are more common and costly than one might think. “Such attacks, known as business email compromise (BEC) scams, cost organizations an average of $301 million every month in 2018, the U.S. Department of Treasury previously determined.”

IronCAPX is an email security product that is coming soon. IronCAP X allows senders to digitally sign the email, so that recipients can trust the legitimacy of the sender. Moreover, IronCAP X digital signature feature is not only safe today but also in the future world of #quantumcomputers.

IronCAP’s $100,000 Hackathon Closes, IronCAP Proves Un-Hackable!

See our video announcement at

After much anticipation, IronCAP’s hackathon has come to a close. 517 entrants from around the world patiently wait to hear the results, as do our investors and partners.
We are so excited to announce that not a single hacker was able to crack IronCAP’s encryption! Despite 30 days to adequately study, test and hack IronCAP’s encryption, IronCAP’s encryption engine stood strong.

To our knowledge, IronCAP is the first quantum safe encryption product to successfully survive a hackathon challenge. This hackathon has shown customers and partners that IronCAP is the best choice for post-quantum encryption.

Developments in the quantum computing space are announced weekly. More large companies are entering the space of developing quantum computers (e.g. Intel) and making them more accessible to the world (e.g. Amazon Braket). The implications of stronger chips and greater accessibility are that the need for protection grows by the day. Don’t let your company become vulnerable to these powerful machines because you started your migration efforts too late.

01 Communique is leading quantum safe encryption and working with new customers, partners and investors every day. If you would like to begin integrating IronCAP into your security suite, or partner with us, email to get started.
