SwishData Releases New Video in Drama 'Hacked: The Series'

Episode II: Federal Employee Bob Nelson Lands in Jail Following a Cyber Breach

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - September 10, 2014) - SwishData, a woman-owned group of leading data performance architects for the federal marketplace, today announced that it released the second episode in the company's fictional drama, "Hacked: The Series," highlighting the cybersecurity dangers facing federal agencies today.

The new episode, "The Prosecutors," (http://cyberattackdefenders.com) dramatizes the government's investigation into alleged cyber espionage by Bob Nelson, a federal employee whose computer is hacked by foreign spies. Bob's colleagues race against the clock to prove his innocence as prosecutors seek to bring Bob to trial before a military tribunal. SwishData introduced Bob and his family in the first episode, "The Defenders," which dramatized how hackers stole government data and framed Bob for espionage.

"Hacked: The Series" is based on a combination of real-life incidents. Future episodes will reveal how investigators uncover the hackers' entry point into the government network using currently available security tools to detect and prevent their malicious activities. The third episode, "The Investigators," is slated for release in October 2014. 

SwishData is producing the Internet series for its Cyber Attack Defenders website to shine a light on the cybersecurity challenges and solutions in today's complex government IT environment. Joining in the campaign are SwishData's industry partners, including Forescout, McAfee, NetApp, RiverBed, RSA, Vormetric, and VMware.

"Our video series presents a unique and compelling way to illustrate the sophisticated cyber threats facing civilian and military agencies today," said Jean-Paul Bergeaux, Chief Technology Officer of SwishData. "Cyber Attack Defenders brings together the most powerful cybersecurity tools in an integrated platform that significantly reduces complexity and protects against evolving cyber threats to government networks and systems."

"McAfee has been a leader in partnering with other security industry companies through our Security Innovation Alliance. SwishData has taken this idea to an extent we have not seen in the small integrator space. We are excited to be a part of this tightly integrated Cyber Attack Defenders solution for our government customers," said Scott Montgomery, CTO Federal of Intel Security (INTC).

"The innovative Cyber Attack Defenders solution offers a best-of-breed approach for federal agencies. We at NetApp Federal were excited when SwishData released the solution because we had already been developing a proof of concept lab for integration testing of security products. Federal customers can see many of the same security products for themselves in the lab we created especially for government agencies," said Lee Vorthman, CTO of Federal Civilian Agencies (NTAP).

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
