Someone Else’s Predicament ?

Hacked Fast Company sends ‘obscene and racist’ alerts via Apple News

Not hearing otherwise, we need to suspect that the incident might have happened because of the compromise of identity assurance of the personnel in charge due to poor management of their secret credentials.

It’s a pity that we are not able as yet to offer our solution. It will be some more time ahead that we will become able to start to distribute Mnemonic Gateways leak-proof password manager powered by citizens’ non-volatile episodic memory.

In the meantime, I would like to offer a stopgap measure: combining two kinds of passwords — One that we can easily remember and recall , with the other one that is truly random and complex for electronical storage on a device. When in use, we recall and type the former and copy&paste the latter.

Another solution that I could suggest is appoint multiple employees for one account: each of them only needs to remember a section of a long random password.

These are too far away from a desirable solution? — Please write to me should you be in a position to help us accelerate the completion of the Mnemonic Gateways project so that all the global citizens become better prepared most quickly to defend their digital assets, not as ‘someone else’s problems’.

The Mnemonic Gateways project is outlined on the top page of our corporate website — https://www.mnemonicidentitysolutions.com/
