Jordan Peterson is back at work on his next book

In February it came as quite a shock to many that Jordan Peterson was going through detox at a clinic in Russia after developing a dependency on benzodiazepine. At the time, Petersons daughter Mikhaila said he had nearly died several times but she suggested he was finally on the road to recovery.Theres some indication that he is indeed back at work now. Last week his website put out a call for new illustrations for the sequel to his bestselling book 12 Rules for Life.

I am currently in the process of writing my next book, and am searching for an illustrator to produce 12 images. Each chapter of my previous book, 12 Rules for Life: The Antidote to Chaos, was preceded by one line drawing, which was placed on its own page

I am planning something similar with the book I am working on now. The new illustrations must be line drawings, in black and white (because the book will not be printed in color). They will occupy a page at the beginning of each chapterjust as indicated, above. They also do not have to precisely duplicate the style of the previous illustrations, although they should bear some relationship to them, as the two books are companion volumes.

Peterson writes that he is specifically looking for an illustration for a chapter titled Do Not Carelessly Denigrate Social Institutions or Creative Achievement which should be based on this tarot image of the fool:

In addition to this blog post there have been several recent updates to Petersons Instagram account. This one links to the call for an illustrator and includes a photo of Peterson working on the book, which will apparently be titled Beyond Order.

I also noticed this one from last week which includes a video of Peterson playing with a remote controlled car, apparently at home. His daughter wrote, Spotted@jordan.b.peterson actually enjoying himself. Hope you guys are finding time to do the same.

My initial reaction when I learned of Petersons drug dependency and near-death experience was that his career in public was over. After all, many in the media have been eager to see him fail for the past couple of years and it seemed like he had in fact failed in some sense. I was expecting most of the media to take a see, we told you so approach.

That may still turn out to be true, but I have to say Petersons timing may also turn out to be excellent. The next book is reportedly about chaos in the way the former book was about order. Its not hard to imagine that Petersons own experience of chaos in his personal life might become part of telling that story. If nothing else, he suddenly has a very new story to tell and one that is relevant to millions of people in the U.S. alone where deaths from drug addiction in recent years have far outpaced deaths from the coronavirus thus far.

The chaotic state of the world right now might also provide a perfect moment to say something about chaos more broadly. After all, there are no shortage of progressives suggesting now is the moment to capitalize on this crisis to build a new world. Even if you dont like their socialist solutions, its a timely idea.

I hope Peterson is able to recapture his footing and once again go toe to toe with his critics. He was a helpful corrective to a lot of progressive nonsense on the world state. It would be nice to have him back.

Jordan B. Peterson Health Update: Author Is Recovering …

YouTubeJordan B. Peterson's daughter gives a health update.

Jordan B. Peterson is now expected to recover after a dangerous and very arduous journey back from benzodiazepine addiction, which occurred because of an averse reaction to the medication, his daughter told fans in a YouTube video updating the authors health.

Peterson is a well-known author and clinical psychologist who wrote the bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.

The YouTube video from February 2020 on Petersons YouTube channel is called Peterson Family Update. It was posted on February 7, 2020 and has more than 700,000 views already. Jordan Petersons daughter, Mikhaila Peterson, speaks in the video.

Heres what you need to know:

Peterson Family Update February 2020Jordan Update February 2020 Hi everyone, its been months since weve given an update on Jordan and my familys health and its time for one so here goes. The last year has been extremely difficult for our family. Dad was put on a low dose of a benzodiazepine a few years ago for anxiety following an extremely severe autoimmune reaction to food. He took the medication as prescribed. Last April when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the dose of the medication was increased. It became apparent that he was suffering from both a physical dependency and a paradoxical reaction to the medication. A paradoxical reaction means the drugs do the opposite of what theyre supposed to. These reactions are rare but are not unheard of. For the last 8 months hes been in unbearable discomfort from this drug, made worse when trying to remove it, because of the addition of withdrawal symptoms, stemming from physical dependence. He experienced terrible akathisia, which is a condition where the person feels an incredible, endless, irresistible restlessness, bordering on panic, and an inability to sit still. The reaction made him suicidal. After several failed treatment attempts in North American hospitals, including attempts at tapering and micro-tapering, we had to seek an emergency medical benzodiazepine detox, which we were only able to find in Russia. It was incredibly gruelling, and was further complicated by severe pneumonia which weve been told he developed in one of the previous hospitals. Hes had to spend 4 weeks in the ICU in terrible shape, but, with the help of some extremely competent and courageous doctors, he survived. The decision to bring him to Russia was made in extreme desperation, when we couldnt find any better option. The uncertainty around his recovery has been one of the most difficult and scary experiences weve ever had. So: Finally Dad is on the mend, even though theres a lot of physiological damage that he needs to recover from. Hes improving, and is off the horrible medication. His sense of humour is back. Hes smiling again for the first time in months, but he still has a long way to go to recover fully. It appears that we are going to get through this by the skin of our teeth. So let me make a couple of things clear: 1. Neither our family nor the doctors here believe that this is a case of psychological addiction. 2. Benzodiazepine physical dependence due to brain changes can occur in a matter of weeks. It can be made even worse by paradoxical reactions that are difficult to diagnose, and can be extremely dangerous. 3. Weve been told and hope that Dad will recover fully but it will take time and he still has a ways to go. 4. We are extremely lucky and grateful that hes alive. The next update will come from him directly. Thanks again for all the support. Previous update: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPwaixIuTrU2020-02-07T21:34:36.000Z

Hi Everyone. Its been months since weve given an update on Jordan or my familys health and its time for one, so here it is, Jordans daughter says in the video.

The last year has been extremely difficult for our family. Dad was put on a low dose of benzodiazepine a few years ago for anxiety following an extremely severe auto immune reaction to food.

When his wife was diagnosed with cancer, he took a higher dosage, his daughter says, and thats when the problems began.

He took the medication as prescribed, she says in the video. Last April, when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the dose of the medication was increased. It became apparent that he was suffering from both a physical dependency and a paradoxical reaction to the medication. A paradoxical reaction means the drugs do the opposite of what theyre supposed to. These reactions are rare but not unheard of.

She added: For the last 8 months, hes been in unbearable discomfort from this drug, made worse when trying to remove it because of the additional withdrawal symptoms.

A physical dependence let to a terrible condition where the person feels an endless irresistible restlessness bordering on panic and inability to sit still. The reaction made him suicidal. After several failed treatment attempts in north American hospitals, including attempts at tapering and micro tapering, we had to seek an emergency medical benzodiazepine detox, which we were only able to find in Russia, his daughter says.

It was incredible grueling and it was further complicated by severe pneumonia, which weve been told he developed in one of the previous hospitals.

He spent four weeks in the ICU in terrible shape. With the help of some extremely confident and courageous doctors he survived. The decision to bring him to Russia was made in extreme desperation when we couldnt find any better option. The uncertainty around his recovery has been one of the most difficult and scary experiences weve ever had.

Hes now recovering, but theres a lot of physiological damage he needs to recover from, she said. Hes improving and hes off the horrible medication. His sense of humor is back, hes smiling again for the first time in months, but he still has a long way to go to recover fully. It appears were going to get through this by the skin of our teeth.

She concluded by saying she wanted to make a couple of things clear. Neither our family nor the doctors here believe this is a case of psychological addiction. Benzodiazepine physical dependence due to brain changes can occur in a matter of weeks. It can be made even worse by paradoxical reactions that are difficult to diagnose and can be extremely dangerous.

In conclusion, she said, Weve been told and hope that dad will recover fully, but it will take time, and he has a ways to go. Were extremely lucky and grateful that hes alive. The next update will come from him directly. Thanks again for all the support.

Jordan Peterson on the Resurrection | Adrian Warnock – Patheos

As a Christian who believes in the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and even wrote two books about it, I often feel like I should be full of hope, peace and joy at all times. Yet as I tried to explain in my three year anniversary reflections the truth is the last years have been a struggle to not let go of all three of those things. It is a battle we all face. But it is a battle that can sometimes be especially hard for a Christian because of this expectation we put on ourselves that we should be able to rise above all our problems gliding on some kind of celestial magic carpet!

If we believe in the resurrection of Jesus it does give us an eternal hope that at the very least takes the edge of our pain. But it sure doesnt eliminate it for me. Years ago I wrote a post on the subject of grieving and explained that hope doesnt take away grief it just changes it. I have, like many others with blood cancer, been grieving the loss of my old life. But there has been much to be thankful for and so I have been sorrowful yet always rejoicing.

The resurrection does make a difference though. And our belief as Christians in both our own resurrection and that of Jesus Christ is what marks all of us, no matter what denomination or wing of the Church, out as different from every body else.

In my first book I offered the following definition of a Christian:

A Christian is someone who believes in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ and lives in light of the implications of that event.

Adrian Warnock, Raised With Christ How the Resurrection Changes Everything

But when asked whether he actually believed the tomb was empty Jordans answer was fascinating and encouraging. He admitted this was something he struggled with and that actually the Bible seems to be full of people who struggle with God. In fact the very name of the people of God in the Old Testament was Israel and it means one who struggles with God. He argued the in reality nobody can be 100% sure of anything and that is what faith is all about . . . READ THE REST

Hong Kong is number one in Asia for enterprise encryption, with customer personal information the top data protection priority, reports nCipher…

Encryption key management remains a critical challenge to effective data protection

HONG KONG, May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- nCipher Security, an Entrust Datacard company and world leader in hardware security modules (HSMs), today released its 2020 Hong Kong Encryption Trends Study, based on research by the Ponemon Institute. In adjusting to a "new work-from-home normal" as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, most Hong Kong enterprises have accelerated digital initiatives. This brings even more attention to data protection and encryption strategies, with protection of customer information their number one priority. However many organizations face challenges deploying encryption technology.

Most Hong Kong enterprises have an encryption plan in place, but find it difficult to deploy technology and train users

Hong Kong adopts enterprise encryption at one of the highest rates among the global markets surveyed. 60% of Hong Kong companies surveyed say they have a consistent plan or strategy, well above the 48% global average.

Protecting personal customer information is the major driver behind data encryption adoption in Hong Kong. 72% of respondents see it as a priority, 18% higher than the global average. The second driver is intellectual property protection (70%), 18% higher than the global average. Compared to other markets, regulatory compliance mandates are of a lower priority, 17% below average.

Several types of data are encrypted at a much higher rate in Hong Kong compared to its global peers, including intellectual property (68% vs. 49% globally), healthcare information (66% vs. 25% globally) and customer data (52% vs. 44% globally).

Despite active data encryption by enterprises in Hong Kong, many respondents encounter difficulties in deployment (57%) and user training (24%)-- both exceeding global averages. With the growing demand for cybersecurity skills, there is a real need for solutions to help ease the burden of deploying effective enterprise-wide encryption.

Effective encryption is increasingly essential, but key management is critical

The survey shows that rising encryption use intensifies key management challenges, with approximately 60% of Hong Kong firms finding encryption key management to be "very painful". Reasons include no clear ownership (73%) and inadequate key management tools (57%).While 40% of respondents believe IT operations have the most influence in directing encryption strategies, nearly a quarter (23%) say no single function is responsible.

Looking ahead-- cloud, blockchain, quantum and adoption of new encryption technologies

Cloud adoption dominates in Hong Kong with 81% of respondents either currently using cloud computing services with sensitive or confidential data, or planning to do so in the next 12-24 months.

While the surge in remote working has increased the risk of data exposure, how are organizations looking ahead? In the near term, over 70% of responding organizations plan to use blockchain, with asset transactions, wallets, identity, supply chain and smart contracts cited at the top use cases.

Other much-hyped technologies are not on Hong Kong IT organizations' near-term radar. Most IT professionals see the mainstream adoption of multi-party computation at least five years away, with mainstream adoption of homomorphic encryption more than seven years away, and quantum resistant algorithms over eight years out, all of which are in line with global trends.

Story continues

"Consumers expect brands to keep their data safe from breaches and have their best interests at heart. Our survey found that IT leaders are taking this seriously, with the protection of consumer data cited as a top driver of encryption growth," says Dr Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of Ponemon Institute. "Encryption use is at an all-time high right now, with 60% of respondents this year saying their organization has an encryption plan that is applied consistently across the entire enterprise, while a further 30% say they have a limited plan or strategy applied to certain applications and data types."

"As the world becomes increasingly digitalized, the impact of the global pandemic highlights how critical security and identity have become for organizations and individuals, both at work and at home," said Michael Tai, area vice president, Greater China region, nCipher Security. "We are glad to see that Hong Kong is one of world leaders in adopting enterprise encryption, despite the challenges they face in terms of deployment and cybersecurity skills shortages."

"Organizations are under relentless pressure to deliver high security and seamless access-- protecting their customer data, business critical information and applications, while ensuring business continuity," said Ian Christofis, managing principal consultant, nCipher Security. "nCipher empowers customers by providing a high assurance security foundation that ensures the integrity and trustworthiness of their data, applications and intellectual property."

2020 Hong Kong Encryption Trends Study methodology

The 2020 Hong Kong Encryption Trends Study surveyed 267 IT professionals in Hong Kong and is part of a larger global study, based on research by the Ponemon Institute. The report captures how organizations around the world are dealing with compliance, increased threats, and the implementation of encryption to protect their business critical information and applications.

6,457 IT professionals were surveyed across multiple industry sectors in 17 countries/regions: Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, the Middle East (which is a combination of respondents located in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates), the Russian Federation, Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam), South Korea, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, the United States and two new regions for the first time, Netherlands and Sweden.

Are social giants morally obligated to break encryption? – ACS

It may have originally been intended to protect citizens from online harm, but scope creep could see the UKs new duty of care legislation put legal heft behind Five Eyes governments long-running efforts to access social media users encrypted communications.

New reports suggest that ministers from Five Eyes countries Australia, New Zealand, UK, US, and Canada will meet this week to discuss using the new UK legislation to cudgel recalcitrant social media giants into providing government agencies with access to private communications.

A UK government white paper last year outlined its proposed approach which emphasises the importance of a culture of transparency, trust and accountability that would force social media firms to audit harmful content and the measures they are taking to address it.

Compliance with the enforcement regime would be overseen by an industry-funded independent regulator which, the government posited, would also have powers to require additional information... including about the operation of algorithms.

The word encryption is conspicuously absent from the 98-page document, with just one instance of the term, relating to how online child grooming moves across different platforms.

A new twist on an old concept

Despite ongoing threats to clamp down on social media giants in the US, the UK legislation would lead the world in imposing a legally-enforceable duty of care on online platforms.

Just as the common-law idea of duty of care has been applied to a wealth of different situations, interest from Five Eyes partners suggests they see the new laws as allowing them to force social media companies to decrypt messages between customers.

Pushback from Apple, Facebook, Google and other social media giants remains a thorn in the side of police and intelligence services that have struggled to access encrypted mobile devices they say are protecting terrorists and paedophiles.

Facebooks resistance which stems in large part from the Privacy Manifesto that CEO Mark Zuckerberg penned last year after the companys Cambridge Analytica privacy debacle has been particularly problematic given that it owns dominant social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.

I believe the future of communication will increasingly shift to private, encrypted services where people can be confident what they say to each other stays secure and their messages and content won't stick around forever, Zuckerberg wrote amidst law enforcement bodies increasing calls for access to customer data.

Under zero knowledge encryption frameworks, that data is often protected by encryption that the social media firms often cant break but that hasnt stopped government agencies from demanding access to it.

Where does liability start and end?

Australias leadership against live-streaming violence kick-started a global consensus around forcing social media firms to police their content, and its Assistance and Access Act has singularly and controversially focused on letting the government order the breaking of encryption.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton is also calling for unprecedented powers allowing the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD)s surveillance arsenal to be turned on criminal suspects within in Australia.

Yet rather than focusing on specific technologies, the UKs idea of subjecting social media providers to a broader duty of care could shift the onus onto those companies to ensure that potentially harmful communications can be accessed and blocked.

The design choices made by the companies in constructing these platforms are not neutral, a trio of legal experts wrote in an analysis of the proposed laws that called it a sensible regulatory framework on which to proceed.

Every pixel a user sees on an online service is there as a result of decisions taken by the company the operates it, they wrote. Companies have to own responsibility for reasonably foreseeable matters that arise from operation of their service.

If the use of their encryption platforms for online harms like terrorism and paedophilia can be reasonably foreseen, the logic goes, online platforms would be breaking the law if they dont provide a mechanism to help stop such harms.

This novel legal structure would distance the UK government from the perception that its forcing companies to build technological back doors into their products.

The problem with backdoors, as well-intentioned as they are, is that they are engineered vulnerabilities and bad actors inevitably find them, Internet Society senior director of policy strategy and development Konstantinos Komaitis warned.

This means for every crime you stop with a backdoor, you enable countless others... the criminal world effectively gets their hands on a digital skeleton key.

Whether the new legislation represents more carrot or stick, remains to be seen but the fact that Google, Facebook and Twitter all singled out the new legislation as a potential threat suggests that the battle is only getting started.

Facebook plot to encrypt ALL chats will help child abusers to hide, former police chief warns – The Sun

FACEBOOK risks helping child abusers to hide their sick online activities, a former police chief has warned.

The alarm has been raised over Facebook's plans to encrypt more of our private chats shutting out hackers, but also the police.

4

Encryption jumbles messages in transit, and is widely accepted to be one of the best ways of blocking online snoopers.

But Sir Mark Rowley, a former assistant commission at the Metropolitan Police, said Facebook's encryption plans would "make it easier for criminals to flourish on their platform".

"I have lost count of the times my teams were unable to stop crimes in the UK, because of decisions taken thousands of miles away by Silicon Valley executives," Sir Mark said, as quoted by The Times.

He said that Facebook would be "blinding itself to serious crime".

4

"Without access to content, Facebook's AI will be able to detect only a tiny fraction of the criminality it currently identifies," he said.

"We consider our homes to be private, but if the police suspect a serious crime is being plotted in a safe house, it's entirely reasonable to expect them to get a warrant to bug that house.

"This is the digital equivalent."

Facebook is currently trying to"merge" the behind-the-scenes messaging techthat powers Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.

The idea is that users will be able to message each other from and to any Facebook platform. A WhatsApp user could chat to an Instagrammer, for example.

This would also mean encrypting messages sent on all platforms rather than just WhatsApp.

End-to-end encryption means your message is garbled into gibberish during transit, and can only be read in its true form by the sender and recipient.

That's because the contacts involved in the chat each have a "key" that decodes the message.

Anyone else (including Facebook) is unable to read the encrypted text.

It's an important privacy feature, and already one of the defining features of WhatsApp.

Strong encryption is critically important to keep everyone safe from hackers and criminals," said a Facebook spokesperson, speaking to The Sun.

"It is already the leading security technology employed by many services to protect peoples chats and calls today.

"Facebook has led the industry in tackling terrorism and child exploitation online, including tripling the size of our safety and security team to 35,000 people in recent years.

"The rollout of end-to-end encryption is a long-term project and we are committed to building strong safety measures into our plans.

"We will continue to work with industry experts and law enforcement to combat criminal activity across all our platforms."

4

Today's comments echo earlier warnings about Facebook inadvertently helping child abusers.

In February, dozens of child safety groups penned a joint letter urging Mark Zuckerberg to bin his encryption plans.

"Facebook may be happy to shut their eyes to abuse but they cant close their ears to this unanimous concern shown by international experts," Peter Wanless, NSPCC chief, told The Sun.

"Mark Zuckerberg has a choice whether to allow sexual abuse to soar on his sites or listen to those from all over the world asking him to rethink how to implement encryption without putting children at risk.

"In its current form encryption would breach Facebooks duty of care for children so the UK Government must ensure a new regulator has the power to hold them financially and criminally accountable."

Child safety experts including Child USA and the UK's NSPCC argue that it puts kids at risk however.

"Abusers will be able to exploit existing design aspects to make easy and frictionless contact with large numbers of children," the letter reads.

"And then rapidly progress to sending end-to-end encrypted messages.

"This presents an unacceptable risk to children, and would arguably make your services unsafe.

"End-to-end encryption will embolden abusers to initiate and rapidly escalate abuse directly on Facebook's services."

The letter adds: "We therefore urge you not to proceed with the rollout until and unless you can demonstrate there will be no reduction in children's safety as a result of this decision."

Who is on Facebook's Safety Advisory Board?

Here's the official list...

4

Encryption is a tricky issue for tech giants.

By encrypting messages, it becomes impossible to tech firms to police the contents of those message.

This, safety experts say, puts kids at greater risk of being targeted by predators.

But privacy experts (and Facebook itself) say encryption is vital to the security of messaging.

By placing a "backdoor" in messages, it exposes all users' chats to government snooping and hack attacks.

"Strong encryption is critically important to keep everyone safe from hackers and criminals," said David Miles, Head of Safety at Facebook.

"The rollout of end-to-end encryption is a long-term project, protecting children online is critically important to this effort and we are committed to building strong safety measures into our plans.

"We are working closely with child safety experts including NCMEC, law enforcement, governments and other technology companies to help keep children safe online.

"We have led the industry in safeguarding children from exploitation and we are bringing this same commitment and leadership to our work on encryption.

"Over the last few years, weve tripled the size of our safety and security team and now have more than 35,000 people working to protect the people using our platforms.

"We are also continuing to invest billions in safety, including artificial intelligence technology to proactively find and remove harmful content."

Facebook has shown no signs of backing down from its decision to roll out end-to-end encryption.

Some of the key players of Encryption Software Market:

The main purpose of an encryption software is to protect the confidentiality of the data stored in files/folders and disks or data-at-rest; and the data travelling over wireless network or data-in-transit, depending upon the security and compliance requirements of an organization. This is achieved by converting a message or plain text into coded message called the Cipher text so that only the authorized parties can read it. Software-based encryption uses software to encrypt and decrypt data at-rest as well as data-in-transit. Thus, by rendering the data unreadable by unauthorized persons, encryption software ensures the safety and security of the confidential data.

Additionally, a number of data privacy legislations mandate the use of encryption or cite encryption as one most appropriate measures of data protection. Thus, the adoption of encryption would continue to grow in response to data protection compliance regulations and the on-going cyber attacks.
