The gaming industry in the United States has been shown to be targets of successful cyber-attacks. Two recent attacks against Caesars and MGM Resorts have left the companies paying out tens of millions of dollars to regain control of their systems, leaving patrons’ information vulnerable during the attack (https://ibn.fm/RQmQr). This past week on New to the Street, internationally acclaimed internet privacy expert Alain Ghiai, CEO of Sekur Private Data (CSE: SKUR) (OTCQB: SWISF) (FRA: GTD0), a cybersecurity and internet privacy provider of Swiss-hosted solutions for secure and private communications, and multi-media journalist Ana Berry, discussed the significance of the casino’s stolen data (https://ibn.fm/L9UZS).
According to the segment, the attack occurred from a source within the United States, and the FBI is still investigating the crime. They hypothesize that the hackers are selling the data stolen on the Dark Web. The initial attack appears to have come from an email, and most casinos and other businesses use open-source email platforms, making them more vulnerable to attacks.
Mr. Ghiai said the data is valuable – providing information like names, addresses, hotel stay particulars, and other private information. Even if someone hasn’t recently stayed at one of the casino properties, data from years ago may have been on the servers when the information was stolen.
The single best defense against such threats is a secure email communication platform. Sekur Private Data offers a suite of products with encrypted and private emails, secure messengers, and secure communication tools. The company has chosen Switzerland to locate its data storage because of its neutrality, independence, strong privacy laws, long-standing political stability, and excellent international relations. Switzerland is also home to several large multinational corporations and is ranked as having one of the world’s strongest and most competitive economies.
Sekur’s secure email platform allows management and other C-suite executives a private and secure communication platform. This unique product enables splitting a business domain, allowing emails on Sekur’s platform without limiting the domain’s other emails on other platforms. SekurMail also comes with the SekurSend/SekurReply feature that invites electronic communication on a closed-loop encrypted platform. Even non-subscribers can benefit from the security and privacy features when they receive an email from a Sekur subscriber.
In addition to SekurMail, the company also provides:
- SekurVPN creates a secure, encrypted connection between client’s devices and the internet, giving them access to the web safely and privately by routing their connections through a server and hiding online activities. All data sent and received is hidden from prying eyes.
- SekurMessenger is a Swiss-hosted private and secure messaging communications app providing secure and private chat, self-deleting chat, voice recording, and file transfers via any mobile device, tablet, or desktop computer. All communications are transmitted within Sekur’s secure servers.
Mr. Ghiai reiterated during the show that Sekur wholly owns and controls its Swiss-based servers, never sells data, never mines data, never asks for phone numbers, never uses third-party providers, and never tracks internet traffic. The company offers a 15% savings toward monthly and yearly subscriptions with PROMO CODE: PRIVACY.
