The digital world is changing at a tremendous speed. New communication technologies open up new possibilities, but by using them you can also expose yourself, and others, to risks. Many people have trouble assessing these risks especially with regard to the subject of safe digital data storage. With other things, keeping personal information at bay from unauthorized users is becoming an important aspect of life. With all devices connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices are rapidly becoming ubiquitous while IoT services are becoming pervasive.
In this digital age where mobile devices and other internet connected devices are normally shared temporarily. Even with PIN-protected devices, users can readily unblock their phones and hand them to other users, keeping personal information could be really challenging. Traditional data protection and data security solutions are not readily applicable to new age users. Absolute security is no more possible in computer systems than it is in bank vaults. The goal is providing new solutions to these new challenges. A security measure that would keep the user’s private information private until their end of life and after that only disclose selected information to added beneficiaries. This information is encrypted and stored in the cloud so that it could be accessible from different devices.
