Need for Encryption?

Ulf Mattsson, a CTO of Protegrity participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Encryption and Security Risks”.



In a digital global age, digital data touches almost every component of a nation: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals (NGIOA-I). In the coming years, almost everything is expected to become digitalized. This growing surge of necessary, important, yet unsecured digital data leaves each and every entity across nations increasingly vulnerable to criminals, spies, rogue nations, organized crime, and terrorist organizations.
While, the technology for managing and communicating digital data is improving at a remarkable rate, the rapid technological advances and progress comes at the expense of security. As the information and communication technology rapidly changes and improves, it is becoming less possible to identify, manage or control where data and documents originate, or where digital data flows and ends up, amidst the lack of effective governance and management models, tools, technologies and processes.
There are many who feel that the Cryptographic techniques will likely become the only viable approach to assuring the privacy and security of digital data, as encryption is rapidly becoming an essential tool in providing security in the digital global age. Moreover, there is a growing belief that highly secure encryption can be deployed relatively cheaply, and it can be broadly adopted and embedded fairly easily in most digital communications products and applications for handling potentially valuable digital data.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
