The personal digital lives of executives, Board Members, and high-access employees have become the path of least resistance for cybercriminals to penetrate the enterprise. It's also the main conduit to compromise the wealth, status, data, access, reputation, and even physical security of high-net-worth and high-profile individuals and their families. Physical security has always been a priority for individuals and companies. Businesses invest in cybersecurity for corporate networks. But what about people? What about our digital lives? As we become more connected and store more personal information on our devices, we’re becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attacks. This is especially true for executives, celebrities, and other high-profile individuals who are targets due to their wealth, authority, or influence. Unfortunately, there has been no solution comprehensive enough to solve this problem, until now.

This is the reason why BlackCloak wa found. To unite the top leaders in cybersecurity, privacy, and engineering to solve this growing challenge. Informed by decades of experience, its team has developed a concierge privacy and cybersecurity platform that measurably protects every aspect of your digital life. Merging enterprise-grade technology with expert advice, guidance, and education, it delivers concierge-style plans that match the unique threats the clients face. With BlackCloak, you can protect your digital life — and your peace of mind — anytime, anywhere.

Cybersecurity & Privacy PlatformTM: Digital Executive Protection

Corporate endpoint and network security controls cannot extend into personal digital lives. Consumer antivirus, firewalls, and digital privacy solutions are not built to defend against targeted cyberattacks. BlackCloak’s award-winning SaaS-based Concierge Cybersecurity & Privacy PlatformTM combines digital privacy protection, personal device security, home network security, and incident response with a US-based security operations center and white-glove client service. Onboarding with BlackCloak is fast and frictionless. The platform is built with individual privacy top of mind, and for employees of all technical levels. It doesn’t require ongoing maintenance or support by individuals or security teams, and it does not interfere or integrate with any corporate security controls. Most importantly, your personal SOC and concierge client service is always just one-click away. For cybercriminals, attacking the personal digital lives of high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families can be equally as lucrative as hacking into a large organization. BlackCloak members attain peace of mind knowing that they are well-protected from sophisticated threats to those with status, wealth, and influence.
