Reflecting eCrypt Inc's core purpose of enabling users to protect their online privacy and identity, in addition to empowering viewers with knowledge the show is also an innovative way for the Company to increase brand awareness, and awareness of the pressing need for its products in a world increasingly filled with privacy threats.
