Data Centric Security
As technology evolves and business becomes hyper-connected, the need to protect critical data is becoming increasingly important. For organizations that provide vital services such as healthcare, transportation or energy, a data failure could be catastrophic. Ericsson’s Data Centric Security solution uses advanced blockchain technology, enabling enterprises to detect attacks in near-real time.
Data integrity is a huge focus for organizations, as the Internet of Things (IoT) plays an increasing role in our daily lives. In fact, because of the nature of organizations’ utilization of IoT technology, the focus of security has shifted away from data confidentiality, towards data integrity. For example, instead of being concerned about whether the data sent by a heart monitor is being observed, we are more immediately concerned with the question of whether it is being changed, or tampered with. In this instance, an attack on the data security that compromises its integrity could, quite literally, prove fatal.
Data integrity also comes into play in the industrial supply chains and future technologies that rely on a computer being controlled remotely – such as machinery and even cars.
