Monday, January 28 is Data Privacy Day and in an era of increased data collection and almost daily data breaches we need a global effort to protect individuals privacy. Acceptto's CEO, Shahrokh Shahidzadeh along with industry experts share their perspective on data privacy in an interview with VMBlog.

"Assume all of your credentials have already been stolen, even those credentials that haven't been created yet.
Due to the frequency of data breaches, we all must operate under the assumption that it's only a matter of time that we become aware of the fact that our credentials and personal information are compromised. Protecting our citizens' identity and privacy requires new regulatory measures and the collaboration of private and public sectors including all (large or small) companies that today are taking overt advantage of harvested consumer data that is readily available for corporate welfare but not well protected.
2019 is the year of new solutions that employ a combination of multi-modal and contextual controls that continuously and accurately protect user identity and privacy with the assumption that all your online credentials are already compromised."
