In THE PPE WARS. Now One Year Later; ie part 1, I discussed a little bit of how America has gotten to where we are now in 2021. Not just in regard to Personal Protection Equipment, but specifically N95 Respirator Face Masks Made in USA.

Here is a recent tweet from me about this. https://twitter.com/IdeaGov/status/1364622814116859904?s=20

Now comes the reason why you still can’t easily get N95 masks. Still. Part of the reason many healthcare facilities still have shortages. …

2021 is the year we hopefully pull out of the #Covid19 crisis. Seriously. For real.

Vaccines are becoming available. Doctors and Nurses know much more about Coronavirus, and about what works best to treat people. We have a new President. A new Administration that upholds and believes in science. We finally are not up against our own Government to help each other.

But. Most importantly.

You still need to wear a mask, even after being vaccinated. US #CDC is finally, as of 2021 recommending that all peoples in the United States wear…


Digijaks Group started Covid19 response by working with our cybersecurity clients in February 2020. We were asked to help source and validate vendors for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The focus was naturally heavily on China based suppliers. This was basically because China was and still is the World’s primary supplier of PPE, for now. Since then we have secured items like masks, gowns, sanitizer, face shields, as well as gloves, and more detailed equipment like Ventilators for clients across the Globe. We have helped Doctors, Dentists, Nursing Homes, Native American Tribes, as well as small first responder groups.

The Covid19…


Bots Against Us by Alan W. Silberberg

Bots Against Us.

It is about how bots actually manipulated millions in the 2016 Elections. It also discusses how the Russians attacked the United States through multiple forms of cyberwar, information war; and psychological operations combined with bot armies.

It is now out on Amazon Kindle, and paperback book.

The election of 2016 was NOT normal.

The interactions between all of us were manipulated, and thus we were all manipulated in ways obvious and overt, and also obtuse and covert.

The information warfare attacks and psychological operations (psyops) conducted against the United States in 2016 were just one part of…


First part is the introduction from the Office Of Director Of National Intelligence, second part is what I wrote originally on December 10, 2016.

Part 1:

SNIPPET of January 2017 Intelligence Assessment:

Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections ICA 2017–01D 6 January 2017 Key Judgments Russian efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election represent the most recent expression of Moscow’s longstanding desire to undermine the US-led liberal democratic order, but these activities demonstrated a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort compared to previous operations.

The connection between one’s reputation, whether an individual or company/organization; and cyber security is real and persistent. The more that one connects to devices, and connects those devices to the internet and social networks the more this becomes true. This is exponentially true for organizations and networked companies/governments/non profits.

Not only is the cyber attack surface area ever widened, but so is the reach of digital marketers into you and your organization with each set of connections. …


Cyber Security for Families.

Cyber Security for Small Businesses.

Cyber Security for Family Owned Businesses

All three are things most people rarely think about or actually deal with unless there is a problem. These problems can be something that starts with clicking on the wrong link or opening the wrong email.

Escalation can quickly turn into compromised banking, healthcare and social media credentials along with identity theft, and cyber bullying, stalking, theft of business trade secrets, and violations of HiPAA and other regulations. There is a rise in the theft of social security numbers for youth and teenagers yet to use their own information. …


BAM!

There it is. Right in your face one morning when you check your social feed as news.

Reputational Tsunami

That nasty little reputational tsunami something that someone, a bot, or a person, or maybe both left for you overnight. It is a digital take down. A bad blog post. A social media meme that is being unanswered or purposely pumped up to discredit you, your company or organization or your brand. Or maybe it is a false allegation. Or paid fake bad reviews that your competitors put up. …
