What Are Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs)
#53 When you log into an account with Google or Facebook, you’re doing an identity verification through a central intermediary. While it may seem convenient to log in with these established accounts, it comes with concerns for privacy. These large intermediaries will gather metadata as you use the account—things like when and how long you used it, where you were located, and other online activity you engaged in during that time. This information is often used to create targeted ads for you. It can be surprising how quickly you start seeing ads for an item you looked up while your activity was being monitored. And ads seem relatively innocent when compared to other possible uses of this metadata, such as interference in elections. Decentralized identifiers (DIDs) provide a different credential-checking method that doesn’t rely on that intermediary. How do Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) Work?

What’s all the Hype About NFTs?
#52 You’ve probably heard about NFTs becoming one of the next big things in the digital world. Non-fungible tokens, as the full name goes, are a way to attach scarcity to digital items—thus creating value. This allows for them to be bought, collected, traded, invested in and so forth. But since they’re also non-tangible, this concept can sometimes be a challenge to wrap your head around. What are NFTs exactly, and how do they work? Why do we even need to create this artificial scarcity? Here’s a quick dive into this growing trend and what people are doing with it.

How Do I Protect Sensitive Data in My Business
#50 Breaches of sensitive data are extremely costly for organizations when you tally data loss, stock price impact, and mandated fines from violations of GDPR or other regulations. They can also diminish the trust of those who become the victims of identity theft, credit card fraud, or other malicious activities as a result of those breaches. In 2021, the number of data breaches climbed from 68% to 1,862% (the highest in 17 years) with an average cost of 4.24 million each. About 45 million people were impacted by healthcare data breaches alone- triple the number impacted just three years earlier.

Facts and Misconceptions About Zero Trust
#47 Cybercrime reports have gone up over 300% in the last couple years. And a surprisingly large number of breaches happen with company employees involved, often because of mistakes like falling for phishing baits. Any insider in the company can potentially be a point of vulnerability that can expose the whole network. That’s why a Zero Trust model, which assumes potential breach through anyone (inside or out), is the strongest and best cybersecurity strategy today. But many people have some confusion about what Zero Trust really entails. Here’s a rundown of what a Zero Trust framework is made of, as well as a clarification of some things it’s not.
