Secure Channels’ SCIFCOM Platform Preps Companies for CCPA

Encryption-as-a-Service Portal Provides Solutions in Time for New Regulations

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jan. 1, 2020, deadline approaches quickly, and many companies remain unprepared to meet key requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Around half of U.S businesses, service providers and third parties have yet to put “reasonable” data security measures in place to satisfy the act’s sometimes-vague regulations. The experts at Secure Channels Inc. shed light on what covered companies can expect after the deadline, and provide solutions that will help protect them from the act’s heavy penalties.

The CCPA, dubbed “America’s GDPR” by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), was modeled after the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR strictly regulates and sets penalties for organizations anywhere in the world handling and failing to protect EU citizens’ data. The CCPA likewise holds accountable companies anywhere handling the personal data of the most populous state’s residents.

“One need only look at the penalties the GDPR has set out so far to see where CCPA is headed,” notes Secure Channels CEO Richard Blech. “This past July they hit two companies with a combined $350 million in proposed fines for data breaches. This happened within a two-day period.”

Blech refers to the penalties the GDPR intends to levy against British Airways (£183 million) and Marriott (£99.2 million) announced July 8 and 9 respectively. Marriott’s violations stemmed from IT failings of a hotel chain they subsequently purchased, inheriting its liability, while a hack against British Airways redirected customer data from the company’s website to an unauthorized party. “In BA’s case, there was no financial loss to any customers exposed by the breach, but the failure to protect the data alone may result in the largest GDPR fine to date — second largest breach fine in history,” Blech points out. “The CCPA is the same kind of beast. Affected consumers will be able to sue companies under the regulations without having to prove financial harm.”

Thus far, the CCPA is ambiguous in what meets its “reasonable security” requirements, making compliance tricky. “The CCPA doesn’t explicitly mandate that covered companies encrypt consumer data, but it does give consumer’s the right to sue when their unencrypted data is compromised due to failures implementing reasonable security measures,” Blech explains. “There’s little hard guidance for what their definition of ‘reasonable’ is, but the California Attorney General’s 2016 Data Breach Report does specifically recommend strong encryption. Bottom line is encrypting consumer data may be the one step that can spare a company from the severe financial fallout that comes with a breach.”

The CCPA states that violations of the act can result in fines between $100 and $750 per consumer per incident, or actual damages if greater. A company that mishandles 50,000 Californians’ unencrypted personal data can net fines between $5 million and $37.5 million from the base fines alone, not counting reimbursement of any financial damages and business lost through operational and/or reputational harm.

The CCPA complements California’s extant data breach notification law that limits breach reportage to consumers to events involving unencrypted data. A properly-deployed encryption system can therefore shield a company from both fines and a damaged reputation. However, even with so much to lose, PwC and others report that approximately half the businesses they surveyed believe they will not have measures in place to achieve compliance by the 2020 deadline. Blech attributes this to the complexity and cost typical to implementing or overhauling a security system.

“Encryption is one of the ways a company can mitigate the damages of a breach, but IT customers are saying the same things today they were saying 20 years ago: it’s too difficult to deploy, it’s expensive, it’s too user-unfriendly, it’s cumbersome, it’s incompatible with their systems. Even the accepted top-shelf encryption, AES-256, is a 20-year-old cipher that will have questionable efficacy against the unpredictable, rapid advancements in quantum computing. They’ve needed a solution that fits their budget, system architecture, operational needs and, most of all, is simple to use.”

Blech is confident Secure Channels’ encryption-as-a-service portal answers these concerns. “We’ve released SCIFCOM with our assembled encryption solutions that make it easy and extremely cost-effective for companies to temper the CCPA’s presumed heavy-handedness.”

Blech elaborates, “What we’ve put together with SCIFCOM are encryption apps and plugins that can provide standalone protection or work within any existing systems companies have in place. It’s strong, user-friendly encryption for any data-protection situation.

“Visitors to the portal can download our free XFA Mail plugin to send and receive encrypted email. It’s weightless and works with most email clients, like Gmail and Outlook, and uses our post-quantum XOTIC cryptosystem to keep communicated data out of the hands of unauthorized parties. Or, they can sign up for a free SCIFCOM account and send encrypted mail and files directly through the portal.”

Blech continues, “We’ve also released ZIPcrypt through SCIFCOM. Anyone who downloads it can encrypt files right on their desktop with XOTIC and AES ciphers. It’s a very simple solution for users who want to archive data or send encrypted files from their computers.

“Our SUBROSA solution phases out old PIN and password technology for a more secure, intuitive picture-based authentication system where users create easy-to-remember passcodes. That’s available to developers as a toolkit and sandbox environment.”
SCIFCOM is also the destination for companies seeking encryption they can integrate into their systems. “XOTIC is the main encryption component of many our SCIFCOM products, and we’ve made it available to companies and tech integrators across all industries as a free trial demo. We want companies to see that XOTIC can be deployed anywhere, easily, and for a mere fraction of the cost they could face if they get breached.”

Blech hopes vulnerable companies protect themselves and, more urgently, their consumers before a breach puts them on the wrong side of privacy regulations. “If we’ve learned anything from GDPR’s handling of breaches, it’s clear that the attitude is there’s no excuse anymore not to have strong data security in place. That may be true, but we also know there have been obstacles for a lot of companies that want to deploy cybersecurity solutions. That’s why SCIFCOM is there. We made it easy. Everyone should have access to no-friction encryption.”

Still Winning Awards 25 Years Later, Director Jerry Vasilatos' Debut Feature "Solstice" Coming To Blu-Ray December 15th

"Solstice" 25th Anniversary Restoration

The Award-Winning Film comes to Blu-Ray December 15th

60 Day Pre-Order Crowdfunding Campaign Already Funded At 10% One Week In on Indiegogo

CHICAGO, IL, USA, October 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — After losing his leg in a tragic accident in 1986, Chicago native and filmmaker Jerry Vasilatos, was able to overcome his setback and in 1993 go on to fulfill his dream writing, producing and directing the touching holiday drama “Solstice”. The film went on to be a huge success and was broadcast into millions of households as Lifetime Television's Original World Premiere Movie in 1994. This year, the newly restored edition with a brand new orchestral score to celebrate the 25th Anniversary has garnered nominations and awards including Best Drama and Best Score at the Action on Film Megafest, Hollywood Dreams International Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Awards and Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. The restored director's edition, along with 140 minutes of bonus content including newly produced behind the scenes programs, commentary tracks and foreign subtitling in French, German, Greek, Russian and Spanish, is available for pre-sale in a limited edition of 500 copies on Indiegogo at: https://igg.me/at/solsticebluray/x/13077443#/

Harkening other perennial Christmas classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Mr. Krueger's Christmas", the film deals with personal seasonal introspections as relevant today as they were 25 years ago." I hope the message of the story helps provide some hope and comfort to audiences during their own reflections on what the holidays should be about" said the director. "The film was restored after scanning the original camera negative in 2K and the sound mix recreated from the original reel to reel elements. Along with composer Balint Sapszon's new score recorded by the Budapest Scoring Orchestra, the film looks and sounds better now than when it was originally released. The limited edition Blu-Ray will make for a great holiday gift, or for viewing with family and friends."

Vasilatos funded Solstice with proceeds from a personal injury settlement that he had received after his accident. “Back in 1992, I decided to take my settlement and produce a project of my own,” he recalls. Set in frigid, mid-winter Chicago, the film tells the story of Nick Allman (Michael Kelley), a disillusioned young man who encounters a variety of characters that help him regain a sense of hope and optimism during a lonely Christmas Eve. Vasilatos went through some tough times – even losing hope – just like Nick in the film, whose character was inspired by the true events and emotional struggles in Vasilatos’ life at the time. Today Vasilatos has turned tragedy into triumph even going so far as to invent a device made to provide greater mobility for other amputees, cane and crutch users in need of temporary or permanent support called the EZ-Walk. The director's next feature film project, "Shelter Me" has also won awards in several scriptwriting competitions and also placed as a semi-finalist in this year's Slamdance. It is being developed with Chicago Media Angels and Cinespace Studios, with a quarter of first money commitments in place towards the budget.

With the ability to adapt and overcome, a passion for filmmaking and the ingenuity for creating cutting edge products, Vasilatos has had a successful career and sees nothing getting in his way of his ongoing endeavors.

The 25th Anniversary Edition of "Solstice", along with other perks including the award-winning score on CD, DVDs and film poster, are all available on Indiegogo at: https://igg.me/at/solsticebluray/x/13077443#/

Saving Earth: A Conspiracy Theory

The Lost Outpost by Joshua Quentin Hawk

A battle between political and supernatural forces

“Lady of Guadalupe,” a touching movie exploring religious themes and historically significant topics.

“Lady of Guadalupe”

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, U.S.A, October 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pinnacle Entertainment proudly introduces “Lady of Guadalupe,” a touching movie exploring religious themes and historically significant topics.
Los Angeles, CA (October 18, 2019) – Pinnacle Entertainment is a production company dedicated to creating art that will transcend cultural and generational differences with its latest blockbuster. Their most recent film is titled “Lady of Guadalupe.” It is a touching story with powerful characters and even stronger morals. The movie tells the story of the Virgin of Guadalupe, one of the most celebrated saints in the long history of Christianity and Juan Diego. The movie was created by a talented crew of Latino actors, performers, executives, along with film stars Paola Baldion, Guillermo Ivan, Huitzil Bennett, Eric Da Silva and many others. The film is going to be released soon, so stay tuned to learn more about this exciting project, which has set out to share this powerful story with the whole world.

Robert Hymers, Executive Producer, stated “this film is being released in a timely manner as many of the topics covered in the film are more relevant than ever to Latinos and other groups world-wide. The film underscored the importance of love, faith and hope both in modern times and in the past. It also showcases a pivotal event in Mexico’s rich history.”

It’s a story about a humble native, who changed the lives of millions and the course of history, with nothing but his simple devout faith that was sparked by his personal encounter with the Virgin of Guadalupe. The conflict between the natives and the Spanish came to a halt and over nine million or 90% of the people living in the region converted to Christianity within twenty years of Juan Diego’s encounter with the Virgin. Juan Diego went on to be the first American indigenous saint that was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and MX4D Team Up for More Hit Movies in 2019

See and Feel
Zombieland: Double Tap, Charlie’s Angels & Jumanji: The Next Level in Immersive Motion Format

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — California-based MediaMation Inc., makers of the immersive motion EFX experience MX4D, are pleased to announce that it’s continuing its collaboration with Sony Pictures to release a multi-genre, multi-picture worldwide slate for 2019 – 2020. MediaMation works with all studios, but Sony Pictures was an early supporter of MX4D programmed films since 2013.

The enhanced and immersive MX4D format was programmed for nine Sony Pictures releases this calendar year, starting with Escape Room, through the blockbuster, Spider-Man™: Far From Home.

And now, these eagerly anticipated sequels round out the year in MX4D auditoriums:

A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and a cult classic, the lead cast (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone) have reunited with director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and the original writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool) for Zombieland: Double Tap. In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family. Zombieland: Double Tap makes its way to theaters on October 18.

On November 15, director Elizabeth Banks takes the helm as the next generation of fearless Charlie’s Angels take flight. In Banks’ bold vision, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. With the world’s smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women all over the globe, there are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs everywhere. The screenplay is by Elizabeth Banks from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn.

Out on December 13, Jumanji: The Next Level brings the gang (Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas) back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.

Dates cited are for US & Canada and international dates may vary. Other 2020 films are to be confirmed soon.

Children's films, action-adventure, horror and comedy all play extraordinarily well in the MX4D viewing experience, which features such unique in-theater effects as fog, strobe lights, snow, and rain; full-motion seat effects, wind, scent, water and rumblers. Because of its patented armrest, MX4D is the only company to offer each and every patron the same dimensional experience.

Scott Sherr, Executive VP, Worldwide Theatrical Distribution at Sony Pictures Entertainment, remarked, “MX4D’s programming effects team really knows how to make a film more immersive and entertaining. We welcome their global expansion and our partnership that offers another unique theatrical moviegoing experience.”

Howard Kiedaisch, CEO of MediaMation stated, "We enjoy an extraordinary relationship with the team at Sony Pictures. Their diverse and compelling slate of films is perfect for our motion and effects programming and for our global exhibitors. Together we are enhancing the theatrical moviegoing experience.”

Currently, MediaMation's dedicated MX4D cinema auditoriums are in 24 countries, with 378 theaters and growing. Upcoming installations include ten more locations with B&B Theatres in the U.S., four with Kino Arena in Bulgaria and multiple new facilities with industry leading exhibitors including Kinepolis, Diesel Kino, Inox of India and multiple circuits in China.

Actor Jack Falahee & DJ Elephante Join Forces as Diplomacy, Release Debut Single "Silver Lake Queen"

She’s the Silver Lake Queen, she’s a lucid dream. A gin martini and nicotine fiend. She’s a dark soul with a heart of gold. Got me jumping up whenever I’m told

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bringing together two pop culture forces of nature, DIPLOMACY represents the creative union and longstanding friendship of acclaimed producer, singer, songwriter, and artist Elephante [aka Tim Wu] and actor Jack Falahee—known for the ABC hit 'How To Get Away With Murder'. The duo team up to deliver a dynamic and diverse take on alternative pop with rock ‘n’ roll swagger and dancefloor-ready charm. Today, they introduce themselves on the bold and bluesy banger “Silver Lake Queen.”

Billboard exclusively premiered the music video. About the song, the outlet claimed, “the bewitching chorus syncs perfectly to her sensational groove.”

Quite fittingly, a majestic and mesmerizing femme fatale who the guys met in Silver Lake (the birthplace of the project) inspired the tune. An arena-ready beat and loose guitar underscore hypnotic vocals as the track builds towards an instantly unshakable chorus.

Meanwhile, the music video centers around a talented dancer clad in a red dress and accompanied by other performers before eventually entrancing Wu and Falahee as they fall under her spell.

It ties in perfectly with the chant, “She’s the Silver Lake Queen, she’s a lucid dream. A gin martini and nicotine fiend. She’s a dark soul with a heart of gold. Got me jumping up whenever I’m told.”

Diplomacy has been a long time coming for these two buddies.

On the project Tim Wu says, “Diplomacy is about the reconciliation of opposing sides – past and present, old and new, organic and electronic, Michigan and L.A., and Asian and White. Jack and I grew up together, went our separate ways, and both found our way to L.A. to try to chase our dreams. The music and visual content we made is all about trying to create a reunion between our different paths to California, my electronic music as Elephante, and the music we loved growing up as well as songwriting and the visual storytelling that Jack has developed as an actor. It's about two kids from Michigan fulfilling their childhood dream of starting a band together, but coming from a place where we're older and have had time to develop our craft and creative community.”

Jack Falahee adds, "We want Diplomacy to be more than just a band. I think starting this project in our late 20s allowed us both time to mature as artists in our respective fields and hopefully has brought a more developed creative prospective to the project. For me, Diplomacy is in some way about the reconciliation of what Tim and I both bring to the table artistically to make the band reach it's fullest potential. We're both bringing different music, art, fashion and film aesthetics to the project that hopefully come together in a really interesting way to make DIPLOMACY."

It’s just the beginning. Get ready for more from DIPLOMACY very soon.

We tell people: You may never be more moved at the movies. We also give out packs of tissues.”

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The most rare stories in the world screen at Disorder: the Rare Disease Film Festival
at Mission Bay Conference Center, San Francisco, CA, on November 9 and 10, 2019.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Disorder: The Rare Disease Film Festival (Disorder: RDFF) was started by two ultra-rare disease dads to showcase films from around the world that address the challenges of life with a rare disease.
Many of these films are one-in-a-million stories. Or two-in-a-million. In fact one of the films featured is titled “One in a Million” from Academy Award® winning filmmaker Ross Kaufman (“Born into Brothels”). Kaufman co-directed with Emmy nominee Jeremiah Zagar (“Captivated: The Trails of Pamela Smart”). Their short film beautifully addresses Charcot-Marie-Tooth Syndrome.

The festival's organizers have chosen 54 films dealing with some aspect of the 7,000 rare diseases, which affect 1 in 10 Americans. "We couldn't be more energized by the enormous response from filmmakers all over the world who are sharing these powerful rare-disease stories," said Bo Bigelow, one of the festival's co-founders.
“We're so glad to have not just documentaries this year, but fictional films, animated films, even a comedy or two,” said co-founder Daniel DeFabio. “We tell people: You may never be more moved at the movies.”
Some films are the first to be made about their subject disease, such as Menkes Disease, USP7 and Jon Dorflinger's film "Unconditional," which deals with an ultra-rare neurodevelopmental disease called PACS1. Other diseases addressed by the films screening in November include Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Cystic Fibrosis, NGLY1, Batten, Sanfilippo, and Mitochondrial Disease.

In the film “Deep Blue Breath” several well known Hollywood actors come together to make a film envisioned by a boy with VATER syndrome. Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings”), Natasha Gregson Wagner (“High Fidelity”) and Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”) are directed by Patricia Cardoso (“Real Women Have Curves”) in this touching story that makes leaps into animation and special effects as a sick boy imagines his battle with his disorder.
The festival will also bring back 13 of its most popular selections from their last event, which took place in Boston, MA in fall 2017.

Tickets for the festival are now on sale at the event's website (https://www.rarediseasefilmfestival.com/attend2019)

Disorder: RDFF aims to increase awareness of these diseases among not only the general public but medical researchers and industry as well. The festival's goal is to promote collaborations among rare-disease stakeholders in order to reach cures and treatments. Between many of the film screenings, rare disease researchers and patient advocates will also share stories from their experiences. These discussions have been shown to spark new thinking towards translation applications of current treatments and inspire avenues for new research. Additionally, many filmmakers attending the festival will have an opportunity to participate in questions and answers with the audience following the presentation of their films.
Disorder's founders are glad to have support from some of the leading organizations in rare advocacy—NORD, Beyond the Diagnosis, CheckRare and Global Genes, —as well as several leading orphan drug companies including Premier Research, Sanofi Genzyme, Horizon, and Takeda.
