Top cybersecurity firm hit by a cyber-attack
Sopra Steria was shut down last week by a cyber-attack according to a very minimal statement. Sopra Steria is an IT giant in France with systems development across a wide range of sectors: aeronautics, defense & security, energy & utilities, financial services, insurance, government, retail telecommunications and transportation.
On the Sopra Steria web-site they outline their approach to cybersecurity as follows:
1. Cybersecurity: the foundation of trust required for your digital transformation
2. A security-focused approach i.e. prevention, protection, detection and response
3. Innovative solutions to accelerate development for your organization
As cybercrime has exceeded the ability of any perimeter defense to keep hackers out it is inevitable that whatever they develop will be breached. Data is at that point in the clear.
It is obvious that their products can’t even protect their own business. Beyond, this troubling circumstance is the lack of information they are providing their customers and the press. If you are going to sell your firm as cybersecurity experts in the area of detection, then you have to at least disclose what happened. If not, it leaves one to wonder if they even know what happened. I fnot, then their problem runs much deeper than a breach. It certainly calls into question their overall IT capabilities.
Fanaticism on identification through bio-metrics, password managers or 2FA are only as secure as the person entrusted to follow the protocol. As we all have learned, the human error component can always be breached. In the near future, when quantum computing becomes more mainstream, products that rely on TLS-based encryption will be instantly obsolete.
Helix22 delivers all this security assurance very confidently due to our genius engineering team spearheaded by Robert Statica and Alex Maslov who have invented a new model for data security that required an innovative look at the problem. As mentioned, 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 identification. However, once the product is breached or a password is stolen, your firm/nations data is in the clear.
The Helix22 cryptography is embedded with the data itself through our inventive and patented process of DNA Binding. Therefore, even if a breach were to occur the data cannot be exfiltrated. This means that all your firm/nations data is 100% protected regardless of the type of attack. Further, Helix22 protects data at rest, in use and in transit. No other data security can make that claim. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning experimentation runs and generates incalculable amounts of data. All is protected at its inception.
