Looking Forward To My Replacement

Looking Forward To My Replacement
Nick Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group of Companies

Like all things in life, we have to look at change. When systems don't work anymore, wear-out or simply are just behind the times, we must do something about it.

The corporate world should take heed!

CommSmart Global are excellent 'change agents' and have the full understanding of implementation and the reactions of management and staff at these times. 

That is why in these days, our management team is welcoming our replacements!

Derek got his new hip yesterday and is doing fine.  I cannot repeat what he actually said, enough to say, a grunt of swearability occurred.

This morning it is my turn for a replacement knee and I am meeting my surgeon/carpenter early this morning.  Yes, I asked him if he was a surgeon or an engineer, he stated he was a very intricate carpenter.  

Time will tell!

Will discuss how surgery and rehab can be applied to the corporate world doing the next weeks of recuperation.

The rest of the global team are healthy and ready to assist in all your cyber and analytic woes!

Talk soon...

Sadly, We Are Falling Apart! But, The Fix Is In!

Sadly, We Are Falling Apart!  But, The Fix Is In!
Nick Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group of Companies

It is not what you think, business is great and our four decades could not be finer, customer base growing, on-target innovations and success booming and then...

Our management started to age, fall apart healthwise.  No, nothing that cannot be fixed with a little cutting and replacing that is.  

Our V.P. Law Enforcement, who played in his youth for Chelsea Football club and was a major part of the 'Flying Squad', (Major Crimes) in Britain's Metropolitan Police, has been suffering with a deteriorating hip, which has been causing agony for a couple of years.

As of this morning, it is being replaced!  

So that is one fix that is in!

Secondly, I had knee surgery in the late 1970's by the inventor of the replacement hip, Mr. Mckee.  Well nothing lasts forever and I am having replacement knee surgery on Thursday.  Both Derek Keene and I will still be as active as ever during the recuperation, electronically that is.

Our other managing partner, AJ, in our Netherlands office has been concerned that he is the only fit one in management!  He was joking of course...

Pain causes issues and the daily change mirrors what we must effectively do on a daily basis, that is if you are up to snuff and serving your corporation well.

CommSmart Global Group of Companies is use to looking at what needs to be changed.

Our Red Tagged software group is proven cutting edge for the needs of today and the ongoing hacking and phishing explosion.

Our taking on employment and why the job must search you out is necessary in this social or antisocial age. ZoooMeee is the way for both job seekers and improving your HR department and using them the correct way.

Then, the crime analytics which encompasses crime, terrorism and cyber categories by allowing all agencies globally to share information, even if they use differing data collection and software. It is also available for the public to view in a less informational way. 

IRATC, International Repository of Analysis for Terrorism/Cyber Crimes

This is your global data repository for those facts that require sharing to protect us all.

So, we have achieved a massive amount while 'under the weather' so to speak. 

It is business as usual as a small corporate percentage sip on dry Martinis and savor exquisite cuisine, whilst doing rehab.

The show must go on...

If Our Protectors Are Not Ready for Cyber/Terrorism Warfare, What About You?

for Cyber/Terrorism Warfare, 
What About You?
By Nick Ashton,CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group of Companies

The Armies, both Military, Law Enforcement and Homeland Security of Kings and Queens, all powerful, commanding and are a privilege to join.  They are the power source for protection of our shores, family and the value of a nation.

Not anymore!

The weapons used included fist and feet, knives, guns, grenades, mines, bombs, missiles, satellites, sex, MRE’s and importantly varying grades of tacticians. 

Our protectors keep their abilities close to their chest and you trust them implicitly. 

So what the HELL happened?

On Cyber war, this quote for the top military man:

The U.S. military is ill-prepared for waging cyber warfare and needs to bolster defenses against the growing threat of cyber-attacks against both military systems and private infrastructure, the commander of U.S. Cyber Command told Congress on Thursday.

“Those attacks are coming and I think those are near term and we’re not ready for them,” said Army Gen. Keith Alexander, head of Cyber Command and also outgoing director of the National Security Agency.

Alexander, in prepared testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee, sounded the alarm on the need for better cyber-attack and defense capabilities. He said the command’s priorities include setting up a secure “defensible” telecommunications architecture, training cyber warfare personnel, increasing intelligence data on global cyber threats, and clarifying lines of authority for conducting cyber-attacks and defending government and private networks.”

Excuse me?  The attacks are not coming, they are here and getting worse, ignored, not reported immediately and swept under the carpet!  That is why I cannot understand why they call it Cyber Command, as they are not in command!

Trusted Remedy is more in command for “Shutting the Front Door” than the American Government.  Fact, not fiction…

The failure of cyber security is not knowing your password and importantly remembering it or where you wrote it down.  Passwords are not the answer as they are so easy to hack, after all, we humans take the easy way out, as we cannot remember birthdays, anniversary or the name of the guy behind the lunch counter you see every day.

So who is this CommSmart Global RED TAGGED 

A company, who, for the last twenty years has protected more computer data, both personal and corporate from the new cyber terrorists who steal the information directly from the files on your Desktop PC/Mac, Laptop, Tablet and Smart Mobile Phone.  They get so close you can smell their hardware.  They do not spill blood, they spill the inner most secrets of your life, both business and pleasure.  Some and most should never see the light of day.

RED TAGGED END2END ENCRYPTION (E3) Trusted Remedy was created because there was nothing out there in the computer security world that protected data, was easy to manage and worked!  Hence, the Secure Connection Solution for Data in Motion or In-Transit of today.  

Passwords are useless, so to speak, on an education campus they get passed around, households all use the same one and most are so easy and connected to birthdays, anniversaries or so ridiculous you forget them or keep them on a torn piece of paper in your clutch or wallet.

The human element lets us down every time and that is why we have created a hallway or corridor that is totally secure.  

It not only Shuts the Front Door, It Shuts the Back Door Too!  It allows your device to speak!

It is all about connections, secure connections without a human element.  It is your device, Desktop PC/Mac, Laptop, Tablet and Smart Mobile Phone, they are your token, it negates the password, so to speak.

It is the ability to know that your Data in Motion is a mere blip in transference and all is transparent in it actions.  It is not some elongated action that takes forever or lives on the Internet way after you are gone. 

Trusted Remedy is short lived certificate solution based on your device’s DNA, sorry to be technical for the first time.

Trusted Remedy turns your device into a token with no need of a password if you like. Secondly, it is not the server side that causes the problem, but the Man in the Middle and Phishing attacks

Only with Trusted Remedy you can use 123456 as a password because without the device, even using the right log-in and password, the connection is blocked! 

Even in a consumer environment Trusted Remedy will secure your desktop PC/Mac, laptop, tablet, smart mobile phone to have fully secure transactions with your bank, your website, corporate data servers, secure your bank card transaction at Target, the gas pump or the local restaurant, even your Linked In page!

The Hacker, Phisher or Man in the Middle Brutal Attacker will do anything to steal your information and never even meet you.  Whilst you swipe your bankcard, they swipe/steal your inner most personal information.  You are violated in a way that is difficult to explain. 

When it happens to you, and it will, you will understand the turmoil they will put you through and will kick yourself that you did not take notice of what you can do to protect all your information, computer based devices, your business and importantly your clients/customers.

So what about you?  Ready to corporately and personally understand what has to happen to protect Data in Motion or In-Transit? 

Then we must talk. 

This is a commercial solution that will Shut Both the Front and Back Doors with a secure connection.

WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…
