The digital explosion and spread of connected technology has a potential impact on privacy and thus protection of personal data has become a new priority. On one hand, there are extremely technology-driven privacy enthusiasts who cultivate zero digital footprint anywhere, on the other – in real life, the vast majority of end users leave a footprint everywhere; giving cybercriminals a web-scape full of sensitive data to be exploited. This deviation makes maintaining the desired data-neutral position for the end user increasingly complex. With nearly 3 billion new connected devices powering on this year, data privacy in 2019 is a complex ball game. Data is growing exponentially, driven by aggressive digital adoption initiatives across all industries. Trends, such as Internet of Things (IoT), AI/ ML and a multitude of cloud computing models, promise increased productivity and business agility however even more sensitive data is now available for collection and exploitation. Data breaches are at an all-time high, with new and evolving technologies being used to instigate as well as prevent cyber-attacks. With companies, governments and citizens facing a growing risk of being hacked, data security demands both defensive and offensive strategic solutions. The threats to data privacy and security are significant, but so are the defensive measures that are available, with frontier technologies offering the potential of highly effective and proactive approaches.
