Dr. Termanini is the system architect and designer of “Cognitive Early-Warning Predictive System/ The Smart Vaccine™” which replicates the human immune system and creates the digital immune system, to protect the critical infrastructures against future cyber wars. He wrote a book on the system showing how Vaccination-as-a-service works.
The Electronic Pearl Harbor, Revisited® By Dr. Rocky Termanini CEO MERIT Cybersecurity Consulting
On August 24th, 2005, The Northeastern region of the United States was hit by an unusual type of a massive cyber attack that is called “The Virus Rain”. The attack caught the region by surprise and hundreds of incident response teams scrambled to catch up with the attack.
Systematically and with a progression of 5-minute interval, the attack spread out very fast and hit the whole region like a hurricane bringing down the electrical system, followed by the metro rail system, the hospital systems, the banks, followed by airport control tower systems…The National Cyber Emergency Response Team (CERT) estimates that over 200,000 different types of viruses have been unleashed to paralyze the region. Later, it was referred to as “The Electronic Pearl Harbor 2®”!
The cyber hurricane hit New England with its payload of Remote-control viruses, self-mutating stealth-smart bombs, backdoor hemorrhoid zombies, and autonomic heart-attack kamikaze agents. It was like the four horsemen of Apocalypse, or the final battle of Armageddon. All this will be done on Internet. The global malware market is phenomenal. There are 1500 virus supermarkets in the world, selling underground custom-made viruses for different purposes. The US is aware of such attack may occur, and new cyber bunkers have been built to fall back in case of an attack. Other countries have no such preparedness and they have to count their blessings and pray hard.
Now, Vaccination and acquired immunity has been one of the greatest milestones in the history of man. A similar mechanism is being developed to give the world of computing something that we call “'The Smart Vaccine''''®”. See additional info about it:
The three-tier model pretty much represents the human immunity system: The green layer is the skin; the middle tier represents the mobilization of white and red cells, and the blue tier represents the target organs. (Refer to The technical paper “The Smart Vaccine” published in September 2005). The smart vaccine is the autonomic broker of the the Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System (CEWPS) which is the only way to protect a critical infrastructure from cyber hurricanes and storms. The present security technology is not capable to protect the country’s critical infrastructures. The Smart Vaccine® is a first response technology that predicts and responds on demand. Developing countries such as the UAE need to learn about Cyber First Response to protect the critical infrastructures. Massive calamities such as Pearl Harbor or 9/11 will always be revised and those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.
