Information is the most important tool that is available in the modern world. Battles in the modern times are not being fought with weapons and warfare but with mind and information. There have been significant changes in the way we perceive information these days. From the manner in which the information is conveyed to the manner in which it is used, humans have discovered better ways to utilize and exploit information at the same time.
However, the advancement in the tech world has proved to be a boon and a bane at the same time. While on one hand, it helps a person to store relevant information and share it with interested users while on the other hand, it allows a person to exploit the information in the way he or she wants. This has led to the breach of privacy which is one of the trending topics in the global news. With each passing day, more and number of business houses and powerful companies are disclosing the news of privacy breach that has affected millions of people. More and number of innocent users are becoming the victims of the data breach that occurs every day. It is for this reason that modern technology is continuously trying to look for newer ways to protect information that are safe and secure as well. 2018 certainly brings a new ray of hope for the people who are looking for safer and more secured mediums for the transfer and sharing of information.
The vicious circle
The privacy breach is something that has become a raging issue among the people and organizations around the world. The basic reason behind the data theft can be quite different depending on the needs of people. However, it is totally illegal and it is for this reason why the breach of privacy is so common in the organizations. Whether it is national security or international relations or the organizational data, nothing is safe from the clutches of the hackers who are always on the lookout of some or the other way to steal the information.
Light at the end of the tunnel
Although, it seems like an impossible task to ensure the safety of the data that lies on the internet and on systems, yet the current scenario in the technological world is continually changing. With the help of these newly found measures, several firms are on the lookout of developing measures that allow a person to encrypt the information in a way that it becomes absolutely difficult for any breach of privacy and information. One such technology that is still in its nascent phase is the ZKP or the zero-knowledge proof which is basically a technology that uses the advanced stages of cryptography to modify the information in a way so as to protect it from theft or breach.
Thus, with the help of the right technology by your side, you can be quite hopeful of the future of data.
