Let’s dive into a world where data isn’t just growing — it’s exploding — setting the stage for an AI-driven future that’s as exciting as the next sci-fi blockbuster. With innovations like ChatGPT and Neuralink pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, we’re on the precipice of a data revolution.
One of the biggest challenges of digital technology today is around security systems and data. In response to this, sophisticated algorithms have been designed to encrypt data and protect it through frameworks known as symmetric cryptography. While this has proven successful, advancements in quantum computing - which utilises quantum mechanics to solve complex problems faster than conventional computers - could potentially turn data security on its head.

The need to find the balance between providing a unique and tailored customer experience, ensuring data privacy, and adhering to market regulations has become more critical than ever for Communications Service Providers (CSPs). In a world where customers are more demanding, regulations are more stringent, and attacks are more sophisticated, it’s easy to see how telecom organisations deem balancing act challenging.

Data is the most valuable resource for the global enterprise. For any company wanting to remain relevant in today's competitive business landscape, data needs to be at the centre of every business decision, allowing the C-suite to review initiatives, make real-time decisions and if necessary reverse actions. A quick response fuelled by real data insights will power and improve the customer experience and product offerings while driving lower prices through better efficiency. Ultimately, this will improve the bottom line and deliver successful outcomes for many organisations.

AI is growing in popularity and this trend is only set to continue. This is supported by Gartner which states that approximately 80% of enterprises will have used generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) application programming interfaces (APIs) or models by 2026. However, AI is a broad and ubiquitous term, and, in many instances, it covers a range of technologies. Nevertheless, AI presents breakthroughs in the ability to process logic differently which is attracting attention from businesses and consumers alike who are experimenting with various forms of AI today. At the same time, this technology is attracting similar attention from threat actors who are realising that it could be a weakness in a company's security while it could also be a tool that helps companies to identify these weaknesses and address them.
The technology landscape has evolved significantly over the last year with the introduction of technologies such as ChatGPT and other generative AI tools taking the market by storm, while raising concerns about data security and more. As we move forward into 2024, we anticipate that the impact these new technologies have made this year means they will continue to pave the way forward, with AI remaining a hot topic in the industry, while data security concerns rise around it.

By the year 2025, an estimated 463 exabytes will be created daily. For reference, one exabyte is 8,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits. That’s a lot of data. And even though cyber-attacks will increase as the attack surface expands, with cybercrime costing the world $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, data will remain the most valuable resource for today’s global enterprise.

In today’s data-driven world, privacy and data protection are paramount. One of the most significant developments in data privacy is Quebec’s Law 25, also known as Bill 64, which was officially adopted on September 22, 2021. This landmark legislation represents a significant step in modernizing Canada’s privacy landscape and introduces several key provisions that businesses must be prepared to address.

Quebec’s Law 25, also known as Bill 64, is a comprehensive data privacy law that introduces stringent requirements for organizations handling personal information. Non-compliance can have, and likely will have severe consequences for businesses, resulting in costly fines and reputation loss, which impact businesses greatly. Protegrity’s pseudonymization solutions can help organizations simplify Law 25 compliance and avoid fines.

What is tokenization? This method revolutionized the modern way we protect data. In today’s age, InfoSec teams can deploy keyless and reversible methods with tokens, which replace sensitive Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and store this information in both vaulted and vaultess token look-up tables. When the data is needed, it can be re-identified and accessed by the right parties, ensuring sensitive information remains protected. Watch above to learn more about this revolutionary data protection method.

What is anonymization? InfoSec teams can utilize anonymization to irreversibly scramble sensitive data values, thereby protecting an individual’s private information. If the sensitive information can no longer be linked to an individual, businesses have a better chance of saving on audits, complying with regulatory requirements, and scaling their ability to compete – all leading to revenue increases for your bottom line.

De-identifying data is what every data protection method is designed to do, making it the basis of effective cybersecurity. Common data fields that are de-identified by businesses would include names, birth dates, addresses and zip codes, National ID, and Social Security Numbers. By obfuscating sensitive data values through reversible and irreversible methods, your customers and patients can rest easy knowing their data can only be viewed by authorized parties.

At its core, tokenization simply substitutes a randomly generated value or "token" for a cleartext value. A lookup table is then used to trace the cleartext value back to the corresponding token so an authorized user can use a digital token to read the data.
