By expressing interest in Delta Institute and the BX Protocol™, you could receive contact from individuals looking to instill fear or create doubt to discredit our organization.

In 2016, some of our email systems were hijacked. The group responsible is a highly sophisticated cyber-criminal organization with significant cyber-attack capabilities. Members, affiliates, and associates should be apprised of a strategy to generate protective orders against Delta Institute and the BX Protocol™ by manipulating communications.

The example below is content from an actual email sent to one of our members from a testimonial video. Similar emails have been sent to members, their friends, family, and others on their email contact list.
Contact information for members, affiliates, and prospective members was illegally obtained when an online system was unlawfully hacked. In recent months, activity from “John Q. Public” seems to have stopped. Members, new members, and interested parties have not reported continued communication. This is likely due to the fact that Delta Institute has increased security measures, but we want you to be aware that this does not guarantee you will not be contacted.
