Secure Channels Readies XOTIC® Core for Network Cameras

Lightweight Cipher Gives OEMs Faster, Stronger Tool to Aid End User Compliance

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Secure Channels Inc. announced the release of its advanced encryption solution for network camera OEM integration. Secure Channels’ XOTIC® Core cryptosystem gives network camera manufacturers new market advantages for selling encrypted video devices. XOTIC Core encrypts digital video with block cipher strength at streaming cipher speed that allows network camera OEMs to provide more secure cameras without a performance tradeoff. Secure Channels’ announcement comes as video encryption becomes more urgent to end users responsible for safeguarding image data under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Data privacy laws like the CCPA tend to be legally broad. All 50 states have breach notification laws on the books, but California joins states like Nevada, Illinois and New Jersey by enacting a law that permits civil action against entities that fail to protect personal information. Organizations are learning that when the CCPA goes into effect Jan. 1, video captured on their security and safety systems can meet the criteria of “personal information” covered. Video of persons inside an airport, a retail establishment, a casino or a courthouse can form the basis of serious privacy violations in the event of a leak or breach. Organizations seeking to avoid possible liability and penalties under the CCPA are placing more importance on video cybersecurity. XOTIC Core’s encryption gives network camera OEMs a powerful advantage in the race to provide these customers with devices that help them with compliance.

As the General Data Protection Regulation — the CCPA’s model predecessor — continues to motivate data privacy violation fines in the hundreds of millions of dollars, organizations worldwide entrusted with California residents’ personal information are realizing they could be liable for the unauthorized release of sensitive data, including video images. Encryption technologies, if any, that have been integrated into network cameras lean on algorithms that are losing their comparative strength to advancing quantum threats. Others use 20-year-old standards that struggle to keep up with the performance demands of higher-megapixel, higher-frame-rate cameras. XOTIC Core solves for both deficiencies.

“XOTIC was optimized for soundly encrypting streaming data in environments as intensive as those found in the film industry,” explained Secure Channels CEO Richard Blech. “In that kind of extreme protection situation, the cipher needs to be capable of a frictionless deployment, and be lightweight, fast and efficient enough to encrypt high-frame-rate, 4K or 8K video directly from the camera, frame by frame.”

XOTIC excels under the film industry’s punishing workload, providing a level of protection and performance unavailable in other cryptosystems. Its few lines of code fit in devices with virtually zero available battery, CPU, processor or space. XOTIC Core’s digital litheness gives network camera OEMs more versatile encryption and greater performance flexibility as camera technology continues to evolve.

Blech also explained that XOTIC Core’s default encryption key length is already twice the strength of the accepted gold standard integrated into many network cameras today, and it can be set to several times higher for greater protection without added latency. This level of protection satisfies the CCPA’s mandate of “reasonable security” and spares end users from the sharpest penalties in the event of leaked or breached video.

“The CCPA is showing that governing agencies are taking consumer data privacy much more seriously by broadening the liability of and litigation against those tasked with protecting personal information. As such, video security and safety systems now need to be part of every organization’s end-to-end cybersecurity plan,” Blech noted. “When organizations realize that unprotected video is another vulnerability that can subject them to the breach reporting nightmare and resulting financial consequences, they’re going to rely on camera manufacturers to provide future-proof, threat-resistant solutions. XOTIC Core gives camera OEMs the solution.”

Surge in Child Baker Acts Prompts Watchdog to Call for Greater Protection of Children

Involuntary examinations are being initiated on children without parental knowledge. The parent finds out AFTER their child has been Baker Acted.

Normal Childhood Behavior is not a Mental Illness

CCHR is asking lawmakers to change how the mental health law is applied to children to protect them from traumatic involuntary psychiatric examinations.

The manner in which the Baker Act is being initiated, especially when dealing with children, is a gross violation of human rights.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The mental health law in Florida, commonly called a Baker Act, allows for a person of any age to be taken into custody and transported to a psychiatric facility for examination. During 2018 there were over 200,000 Baker Acts with more than 36,000 of them initiated on children. Some of these children are very young, including those between the ages of 2 and 5 years old. [1]

According to the Baker Act Reporting Center, involuntary examinations more than doubled in the past 17 years prompting the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) to call for amendments to existing state law to protect children from abuse. CCHR is concerned over the large number of individuals being sent annually for involuntary psychiatric examinations in light of the fact that it is known that a percentage of these Baker Acts are illegal due to a failure to meet the criteria for taking a person into custody.

In order to take a person into custody under a Baker Act there are three criteria that must be legally met yet it is common knowledge that this is not always done and it was disclosed during a meeting of the Baker Act Task Force in 2017 that 30 percent of the Baker Acts initiated on children in Pinellas County did not meet the criteria. This alarming fact is one reason CCHR believes the Baker Act needs to be reformed so that parents and guardians are brought into the process before a child is put through the trauma of a Baker Act in an effort to reduce illegal Baker Acting of minors. [2]

In the example of minors, parents and legal guardians are being left out of the process only finding out that their child has been Baker Acted after initiation and usually after the child has been transported by law enforcement to a psychiatric facility. CCHR believes that this is a rights violation, a belief that is shared by Sheriffs, Police Chiefs and even School Districts across Florida.

“The involuntary psychiatric examination of children is a gross violation of human and parental rights,” stated Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida.

Over the past several years, CCHR has worked to educate those granted the power to initiate a Baker Act on a child on why a parent or guardian should be brought into the process before initiation resulting in county and city level policy changes that requires parents to be contacted prior to initiating a Baker Act.

However, greater protection of children is needed according to CCHR who is calling for lawmakers to change how the mental health law is applied to children and teens to help prevent unjust involuntary psychiatric examinations.

Those interested in learning more about CCHR’s campaign to protect children from abusive Baker Acting are encouraged to call 800-782-2878.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Sarah Gad Hosts Campaign Job Fair, Helps Employ Dozens of Recently Incarcerated Constituents

Illinois congressional candidate Sarah Gad helps employ dozens of formerly incarcerated constituents through campaign job fair.

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chicago-based activist Sarah Gad recently joined the race for U.S. Congress in Illinois’ 1st district. The 32-year old democratic candidate launched her campaign last month with this powerful campaign video.

Gad's district encompasses the South Side of Chicago, an area plagued by disproportionately high levels of incarceration, poverty, and gun violence—all of which she says are inextricably linked⁠. "Our criminal justice system targets people of color and leaves them permanently disenfranchised, unable to find work, housing, or earn a living," she says.

This past Sunday, Gad's campaign hosted a job fair-style meet & greet for Chicago's reentry community. The four-hour job fair enlisted a variety of background-friendly employers—from Amazon to the U.S. Census—and concluded with 26 on the spot hires and dozens of additional interviews.

Gad says her campaign plans to host these job fairs on a recurring basis. "The unemployment situation out here is more dire than many people recognize," she says. "Finding stable employment is more than just about earning a living. It's also about staying off the streets and not getting killed."

Gad is a third-year law student at the prestigious University of Chicago Law School. She was awarded the 2019 University of Chicago Humanitarian Award for her advocacy work in the realm of civil rights and criminal justice reform. If elected, the 32-year old will become the nation's first formerly incarcerated female legislator.

Marr Plan Advocates in front of the U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — WASHINGTON, D.C. – Saturday, wild horse protection advocates assembled in front of the U.S. Capitol on the National Mall to speak out against the terrible plan by The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), ASPCA, National Cattleman’s Beef Association, and American Mustang Foundation that calls for the roundup of over 100,000 wild horses and burros from our federal lands.

Advocates from California, Florida, Massachusetts, Virginia, and the District of Columbia called out the troubling parts of the proposal, and offered an alternative – the Marr Plan, authored by activist Anthony Marr. Advocates then traveled by motorcade to Richmond, Virginia – approximately 100 miles. That’s the same distance as lining up all of the horses, head to tail, that the HSUS and ASPCA are proposing to round up and remove from our federal lands.

“We must save our iconic American wild horses and burros, and stop this madness,” said Cheryl Turner, campaign director for the Marr Plan Action Committee. “It’s a land grab by ranchers, and big oil, and the use of helicopters to roundup these majestic steeds is inhumane, and unacceptable. We must implement the brilliant and strategic Marr Plan instead.”

“America was built on the backs of horses – they’re an iconic symbol of western civilization that deserve better than to be rounded up and incarcerated by the BLM with cover from the Humane Society and ASPCA,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action, and a life-long horseman. “The Humane Society and ASPCA plan will cost the taxpayers billions, and the Marr Plan won’t – plain and simple.”

Despite its animal-friendly branding, the HSUS and ASPCA proposal asking taxpayers to finance inhumane mass roundups over a decade – adding tens of thousands of horses to the captive population that BLM manages at great expense. Their goal is to remove horses until the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) reaches its favored number of 27,000 – the number that existed in 1971 when Congress passed a law to protect these animals because they were “fast disappearing from the American scene.”

Super Attorney Tom Girardi Reveals California Legal System’s Usage of AI May Lead to an All-Robot Courtroom

Tom Girardi, Super Attorney

Can human error be removed from the legal system?

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Can human error be removed from the legal system? Law firms are increasingly using computer algorithms to perform background research and other tasks traditionally performed by human staff. As computer researchers get closer to creating true Artificial Intelligence, it's predicted that AI will eliminate most paralegal and legal research positions within the next decade.

Yet could AI one day replace lawyers, judges, and juries? Could there eventually be a fully computerized legal system? Super lawyer Tom Girardi would even take that a step further. “It may even be considered legal malpractice not to use AI one day,” Girardi told Forbes. “It would be analogous to a lawyer in the late twentieth century still doing everything by hand when this person could use a computer.”

Writer Rossalyn Warren points out that people are, by their nature, flawed. Flesh-and-blood jurors and judges will always bring their own prejudices into the courtroom. But a robot juror, she says, "could be crammed with a far broader range of facts and figures about the nature of crime, cases on record and the law, making it much more worthwhile than a juror who has little awareness on such matters.” She goes on: “Expecting randomly selected members of the public to decide the fate of a person in a jury system is outdated because the notion of a fair and impartial jury doesn’t exist.”

Even cross examinations could be outsourced to an automated system. A thought-provoking experiment shows that people are more likely to be completely honest with an unemotional machine than a potentially judgmental human. When researchers led by Jonathan Gratch at the Institute for Creative Technologies created an artificially intelligent robot psychologist named Ellie, they tested it on two groups of people.

Half were told Ellie was just a machine that was able to ask probing questions and understand their respondents’ emotions with 3D cameras. Those people were shown to give more honest responses to "her" while the experimental subjects that were told that Ellie was being operated by a human ‘puppeteer’ gave less direct answers. Apart from the possibility of getting a fairer result, raw economics come into play too. “If a lawyer can use AI to win a case and do it for less than someone without AI,” says one of the nation’s top trial lawyers, Tom Girardi, “who do you think the client will choose to work with next time?”

But a solid-state legal system with no humans involved isn’t necessarily more error-proof than our existing system. Former Prime Minister Theresa May, in an address last year to the Davos Forum, pointed out that we need to develop a set of laws governing Artificial Intelligence so we can “make the most of AI in a responsible way, such as by ensuring that algorithms don’t perpetuate the human biases of their developers.” After all, as Ms. Warren points out: “AI, computers and legal robots are made by humans. “Technology, like humans, can make mistakes and hold the same discriminatory factors.”

Thomas V. Girardi

Thomas V. “Tom” Girardi, a partner of the law firm Girardi | Keese in Los Angeles, is widely regarded by his peers as one of the nation's top trial lawyers and with nearly fifty years of experience representing victims, Girardi has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, handling claims involving wrongful death, commercial litigation, products liability, bad faith insurance, and toxic torts.
