Hillary Clinton email issue diverts attention from much needed cybersecurity

Though the focus is on whether or not Hillary Clinton did anything wrong, the takeaway should also be a wakeup call about how vulnerable emails are to attack or snooping, cybersecurity expert says

Bravatek-company-logoCybersecurity was anticipated to be a huge topic in the presidential race, given the threat hacking poses to U.S. companies and the attack on the federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM) that was likely carried out by China.

Yet, even as the Iowa Caucuses move into the rearview mirror and talk now turns to the first in the nation New Hampshire primary, cybersecurity has failed to gain the traction as a topic that it deserves, cybersecurity experts lament.

“The dangers of phishing and other email attacks are there and are very real and pose a huge danger to the government and businesses everywhere, whether the candidates are talking about them or not,” says Thomas A. Cellucci, PhD, MBA, former Chief Commercialization Officer at the US Department of Homeland Security in both the Bush and Obama Administrations.

Cellucci is now CEO of Bravatek Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: BVTK), which makes the Ecrypt One cybersecurity email solution to thwart phishing. A true whitelist system, Ecrypt One is focused on PREVENTION, not detection.

Ecrypt One is a direct replacement for conventional secured email systems consisting of an email server – such as Microsoft Exchange – bundled with email security products and services. Ecrypt One delivers the security as an integrated part of the complete solution so customers can install it easily on their preferred server hardware: on premises or in the cloud.

When people think about cybersecurity in the presidential race, what comes to mind is Hillary Clinton’s emails and her use of a private email server to conduct official business. Though the focus is on whether or not Hillary Clinton did anything wrong, the takeaway should also be a wakeup call about how vulnerable emails are to attack or snooping.

“Servers can absolutely be attacked or corrupted,” says Cellucci. “I hope part of the takeaway is that every business needs to rigorously secure emails with a product such as Ecrypt One—otherwise they are leaving themselves vulnerable to trouble.”

Organizations interested in learning more about Ecrypt One and its anti-phishing technology can go to www.ecryptone.com and sign up for a free trial on a pre-built server at Amazon’s AWS Marketplace (https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace).
