VMBlog: Data Privacy Day 2020: Views and Tips from Top Industry Experts

Data Privacy Day occurs each year on January 28 to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. 

Tips from Industry Cybersecurity Experts

Shahrokh Shahidzadeh, CEO at Acceptto, a Portland, Oregon-based provider of Continuous Behavioral Authentication:

"Today, everyone must assume that each and every one of their credentials have already been stolen. This includes those credentials that haven't even 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.

I believe that 2020 will be 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."
