Data Privacy – The Canary in the Coal Mine

Data Privacy – The Canary in the Coal Mine
Some of our subscribers may not know that many birds are far more sensitive to poisonous airborne gases than humans.  For this reason, in the early years of the 20th century, British coal miners carried caged canaries into the mines to act as carbon monoxide detectors. Canaries that became ill or died in the mines indicated the presence of the odorless and colourless gas and that miners should evacuate.

We’re seeing the same happen with firms that collect and monetize your personal data. Although no birds are involved, we have already seen Oracle […]

Give it Away – The Million You Never Made (Part 2)

We’ve all seen online advertisements that match our interests. Many of us have pieced together that websites and apps collect our personal info, determine our interests, and somehow advertise to our interests whenever we’re online. What many people don’t know is that there are companies beyond Facebook and Google collecting our personal data and selling our digital profile to the highest bidders. You get paid nothing.

In Part 1 of Give it Away – The Million You Never Made, we detailed how governments have implemented or are about to enact legislation protecting personal data. In Part 2 of this report, we […]

Give it Away
Most consumers care about their personal data privacy but don’t know how to: a) take back their data, and b) monetize their data. Not only are governments stepping up regulations to protect consumers, but awareness around the value of personal data is starting to proliferate across the media. As consumers realize the value of their personal data, they may be inclined to protect it and find a way to monetize it.

An Electrifying Idea

Now and again (actually quite often) you get a second chance to buy a stock after missing its initial run. This is very true in the microcap technology world where the market can get very excited (and rightfully so) about the future potential of a disruptive technology, but then it takes longer for orders and accelerated sales than initially expected. This is especially true when a product is completely new (or unknown) and a company is defining a new product category.

This is exactly what has happened at Legend Power® Systems (LPS-TSXV), and why it presents an opportunity for investors. The […]

Sophic Insights – Kraken Investors Establish New Floor Price For Stock

Key Takeaway

Kraken Robotics Inc. (TSX-V:PNG) (OTCQB:KRKNF) (“Kraken”) stock is up more than 40% and has set a new 52-week high since Ocean Infinity, a Kraken customer, announced its plan to take an almost 10% stake in Kraken.

Clear Skies for Cloudy Cybersecurity

Clear Skies for Cloudy Cybersecurity

Contrary to popular belief, most public cloud services companies don’t guarantee data asset security. This worrisome detail hasn’t stemmed enterprises’ adoption of cloud services, even though their cybersecurity tools are still rooted on-premise. But on-premise tools are ineffective in public clouds, and even less so when tools from different vendors are stacked together. One company has remedied this impasse: Backed by a Silicon Valley management team that has had several exits, Sophic Capital client Nubeva (NBVA:TSXV) has a blockchain solution that bridges the enterprise disconnect between on-premise cybersecurity tools and public cloud use. It’s a solution […]
