Safe America Appoints Ecrypt CEO to Head Drive

Thomas A. Cellucci Named Chairman of Program to Protect America

BOULDER, COLORADO -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- Ecrypt Technologies (OTCQB: ECRY) announced that the Safe America Foundation has named Ecrypt Technologies, Inc.'s CEO, Dr. Thomas A. Cellucci as Chairman of its "BE Safe America" National Fund Drive.

Cellucci will also join the Foundation's Board of Directors and will help lead programming designed to protect America from future disasters.

"Tom Cellucci is one of America's most respected leaders and we are delighted to have him chair the BE Safe America campaign," said Foundation CEO Len Pagano. "With Tom's leadership, we will grow a fund that underwrites the kind of resiliency that helps Americans survive disasters."

Cellucci was recruited from a pool of top leaders, standing apart because of his long service to the nation under President George W. Bush and President Barack H. Obama.

"We selected Tom because of his unique perspective and experience of teaming with leaders, no matter what their specific perspective or affiliation," Pagano observed. "Tom's attributes - of being a problem-solver and strategic thinker who knows no stranger - will help us bridge the many perspectives in America. Our goal: to bring together the best-and-brightest, knowing our unifying factor is our common American heritage."

BE Safe America is a program designed to help America handle emergencies better - whether they are weather-related, active-shooter or terrorist. Going into its sixth year, it has annually conducted a 60-day "drill season" in which American firms and communities - along with private citizens - are encouraged to rehearse how they would respond during a crisis. The goal: helping Americans realize that in an emergency, they can survive on their own. Since its beginning in 2009, over 4 million Americans have been involved in grassroots training and exercises.

"We've coined the term "YOU are your own first responder" - and that reality has been reinforced by every crisis since 9/11," Pagano said. "Whether it's a hurricane, an active shooter incident or a scare like Ebola, we all know that it's critical to be 'prepared' to take action."

BE Safe America will launch its national program on September 11th, partnering with over two dozen organizations. The Association for Contingency Planners - and its 42 chapters and 2,400 members - will help lead this year's program. Along with the US Medical Reserve Corps, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Operation HOPE, IAEM, NEMA, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the Hearing Loss Association of America. Financial support has come from the UPS Foundation, Wal-Mart, Sprint and Federal Signal. This year's goal: to reach over 50 million Americans and engage them in learning how to survive disasters.

"Safe America began with no government funding - and has done an incredible job," Cellucci observed. "My goal is to drive funding to enable Safe America to realize its vision of educating Americans on how to survive a disaster and build the mental toughness so communities don't 'fall apart' after a catastrophic event."

The Safe America Foundation is a 501c-3 non-profit, headquartered in suburban Atlanta. Since 1994, the organization has focused on 'emerging issues' in health and safety. The Foundation focuses on helping America improve grassroots resiliency while addressing issues impacting the safety and health of youth, families, businesses and communities.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
