Sekur Private Data Ltd. (CSE: SKUR) (OTCQB: SWISF) (FRA: GDT0) Seeks to Boost User Security Amid Attacks on Government, SMBs

  • Amid concerns about election integrity and the challenges of sustaining a remote-work environment, cyber-attacks on government and corporate computer infrastructures are increasing, including recent attacks on Canada’s national police and various U.S. agencies
  • Swiss hosted Sekur Private Data Ltd. is calling attention to its proprietary security solution, which includes a suite of products based on hosting in Switzerland, where IP addresses are protected from data mining under law as private property
  • Data mining through email is regarded as a significant culprit when it comes to eliminating the privacy of communications via email and app usage
  • Sekur’s 100 percent-owned infrastructure and technology include service solutions for email, messaging and VPN

As ransomware attacks against critical business and governmental computerized infrastructure continue on a global basis, cybersecurity and Internet privacy innovator Sekur Private Data (CSE: SKUR) (OTCQB: SWISF) (FRA: GDT0) is advancing its proprietary solution for securing email, messaging, and operational data under a Swiss-hosted suite of private and secure communications tools.

Sekur’s suite of email and other tools protects users from data mining that is common to computer applications hosted by the prevailing corporations in the United States and elsewhere. Under the law in Switzerland, it is illegal for companies to infiltrate their own users’ data because the IP address is considered a user’s private property, Sekur founder and CEO Alain Ghiai noted in a recent interview.

“Every time you use a Big Tech solution, first of all they have all the rights to read and listen to your (communications). … I always tell people that when you give your phone number away to download an application, nothing is private,” Ghiai said (https://ibn.fm/uA3S2).

“Privacy and security goes hand-in-hand,” Ghiai reiterated earlier this month (https://ibn.fm/lRHS4). “If you don’t have privacy and you get data-miners, you sell the data of people, they’re going to be compromised by hackers. … We’re the only ones that have an off-the-grid, Swiss-hosted-only, our own infrastructure, our own coding, no open source, affordable solution for email, messaging, VPN.” Ghiai said the company is also pushing to develop voice and video encryption by the end of the year.

Ransomware attacks in which a malicious invader exploits cyber vulnerabilities to gain control of an organization’s computer systems and data, holding them hostage pending payment of a ransom, have increased in recent years. As noted by Ghiai, the attacks generally result from business email compromise (“BEC”) attacks that get an organization’s email users to unwittingly infect their system with computerized malware.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (“RCMP”) found itself targeted by one such large-scale attack last month, leading it to launch an investigation into the incident against the national police force (https://ibn.fm/aFLnO). Various U.S. government entities have also reported a spate of BEC attacks by an entity it identifies as TA4903 that is impersonating the agencies in order to lure targets into revealing critical financial information (https://ibn.fm/JAjZB), and TA4903 appears to be shifting its strategy to small businesses.

“Ninety-one percent of all hack attacks start with email, and it’s not just email phishing,” Ghiai told on Fob Business TV’s New To The Street in a new “Weekly Hack” segment (https://ibn.fm/b06AE). “We’re launching a small business plan to basically protect people from business email compromise because during (an) election year, there’s a ton of attack on small businesses and infrastructure.”
