Abstract

The current article about execution of the Data Protection Act (DPA) proposal was sent a week before the State of New York state wide shut-down due to the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the US Senator from the State of New York who had proposed the DPA. The article underscored the need to advance the focus of its execution beyond ex-post reactive penalization of respective firms for compromise of privacy of personal information by firms 'storing' such data to focus on ex-ante Sustainability and Survival material to individuals. There were two specific issues underlying the above recommendations. First, it is not just about storage of such 'entrusted' data but if and how such data was 'exploited' by the trusted firms to Command & Control the Survival and Sustainability of respective individuals. Second, in most cases, those firms may not even be responsible for such compromise of individual data entrusted to them given that they are themselves subject to being 'hacked' by third parties. Hence, to solve the more critical systemic problem encompassing all individuals and firms, we need to build and stress-test systems to preempt and prevent such 'hacking' attacks in addition to the proposed normative compliance measures. Essentially, for Sustainability and Survival of individual Command & Control (C2), we need to focus on developing and deploying Adversarial C2 systems to stress test the robustness of C2 systems as well as Counter-Adversarial C2 to counter the adversarial threats.

The specific focus of global networked systems, infrastructures, and networks that can get impacted in global systemic exponential cascading attacks given the inter-connectivity of networks and often endogenous nature of such attacks was compared with analogous global contagion risks of COVID-19 and their global and national 'spread' that all are monitoring. Over the subsequent few weeks, the COVID-19 global pandemic had unfolded with major adverse impacts evident across public health, global financial and economic, and, global geopolitical, national defense and security, and, related socioeconomic domains. The Survival & Sustainability of Systems at all levels which is at stake and the respective critical significance of Command & Controls - spanning global, national, organizational, individual, and, even human cellular levels of analysis – are being recognized worldwide as never before on the COVID-19 pandemic threats and vulnerabilities "global theater". The respective role of such Command & Controls that are the most essential defining attributes of all Self-Adaptive Systems and their self-identity, self-regulation, and, self-determination are also being recognized in terms of determining the Sustainability and Survival of the respective Systems at all levels. For preempting and preventing future similar global threats such as COVID-19, we need to develop and deploy Adversarial C2 systems to stress test the robustness of C2 for respective Systems as well as Counter-Adversarial C2 to counter the adversarial threats. Our Global Post AI-Quantum, Finance & FinTech, Command & Control Network ventures, United States Air Force (USAF) Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) Commercialization Academy ventures, AIMLExchange.com, BRINT.com, and C4I-Cyber.com fulfill the above global missions.
