Combat #Ransomware Attacks with #IronCAP

Don’t be left out in the cold – Combat Ransomware Attacks with IronCAP!

Cyber extortions are crippling critical infrastructures, healthcare systems, government agencies and businesses around the world. In 2021 alone we saw some large-scale scum hacks and ransomware attacks. In early May Colonial Pipeline paid $5 million to the DarkSide ransomware gang and in June, the meat processor JBS paid $11 million to the Russia-based REvil gang. Hackers are using simple phishing tools, making you believe it is a legitimate email, to gain access to your sensitive information.

Top US officials have recently ranked ransomware attack as a national security threat. According to The New York Times, President Biden put this issue at the top of his agenda for his June meeting with Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, and had given him forceful warnings for his inaction against those ransomware operators tied to Russia.  President Biden had also requested his lawmakers to work on several bills that would, among other things, require a wide range of companies including critical infrastructure operators to report attacks to the government.

The F.B.I. Internet Crime Report for 2020 listed 2,474 cyberattacks in the United States, with losses totaling more than $29.1 million. The reality is probably of a much greater magnitude. The German data-crunching firm Statista has estimated that there were 304 million cyberattacks worldwide in 2020, a 62% increase over 2019.

We at IronCAP™ have been trying to educate businesses and individuals that Q-day (the day the first quantum hack is publicly recognized) is around the corner and everybody needs to gear up. Nation states and governments are already at it, how about you? To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.

IronCAP™ is our latest innovation for the post-quantum cybersecurity. This patent-protected, post-quantum cryptographic system is based on the Goppa Code-based cryptographic technology. It has embedded our proprietary subclass of (L, G) making it not only more secured but also has faster cryptographic operations (key generation, encryption, decryption) than the traditional Goppa Code-based technology (McEliece). We are offering a live demonstration for the general public to try and experience the strength of IronCAP™ post-quantum encryption easily. To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.

#IronCAP Completes PoC #QuantumSafe #Blockchain

All the technical objectives necessary to integrate IronCAP™ into the Solana blockchain have been achieved!

Not just by providing a quantum-safe blockchain that supports smart contracts, but also retaining Solana’s ultra-fast throughput. “The technology we developed for this project is independent of the type of blockchain that is in use and as such it can be applied to not only the Solana blockchain but also other public blockchains such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, as well as most private business blockchains. The method of integration is unique and; therefore, we plan to file a patent application along with our partner, Talent Summit who has accepted and paid for the delivery of the Proof of Concept (“PoC”).  Our next step will be to create and demonstrate a quantum-safe wallet while Talent Summit will plan for commercial development and launching of QNT – Quantum Native Token,” said Andrew Cheung, President and CEO of 01 Communique.

As previously announced, the Company was commissioned to develop the World’s First Quantum-Safe Blockchain designed for Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for the Metaverse, De-centralized Finance (DeFi). It is expected that this quantum-safe blockchain will be resilient against cyber-attacks, including attacks from Quantum Computers.

“Unfortunately, virtually all blockchains in the world today are vulnerable to quantum computer attacks.  Since blockchain data is meant to be “forever” it is imperative that it is quantum-safe.  This PoC achievement is a very significant milestone and demonstrates our IronCAP™ technology can transform existing blockchains into a quantum-safe version that can be incorporated in Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for Metaverse, DeFi, and more”, said Andrew Cheung.

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.

Protect your customer’s information and your company’s important data with IronCAP’s quantum-safe encryption. Visit our website for more information or email sales@ironcap.ca to learn more.
