Some notable breaches over the past few years include the 3,000,000,000 email accounts at Yahoo, the 143,000,000 credit files at Equifax, and the 87,000,000 Facebook accounts accessed by Cambridge Analytica. The reason why these data breaches occur and keep occurring is that data lies on central servers just waiting for hackers to breach the firewall.
Using Blockchain to Protect Personal Data, The goal then is to move away from gatekeepers to a decentralized system. However, the decentralized system also presents many challenges. The “Godfather of Bitshares” Stan Larimer says –
Today, there is no real data security for blockchain-based applications, and there is a huge need in the marketplace for a security layer.
Secrata, developed by Topia Technology, is the only enterprise security platform providing triple-layer encryption and separation end-to-end, protecting against brute force attacks and more innovative security threats. It has offered unparalleled security, flexibility, and performance for US government agencies such as the Air Force, Army, FAA, TSA and other enterprises that have required protection coupled with strict performance metrics.
The organization, Topia Technology has combined its patented security for shredding and encrypting data with the power and transparency of blockchain into its SDFS network. Individuals and businesses will now be able to quickly and securely share any digital asset without a central server and with the confidence that each transaction is not only performed in a manner agreed upon by the blockchain, but it will also have the ability to guard against multiple threats.
