New cyber security research could protect data, even when attackers break in

A UC researcher in the US, recently named in MIT's Top 35 Innovators under 35, found a breakthrough in cyber security mechanisms, to enable our insatiable appetite for data to be better protected than traditional perimeter techniques. This is a huge field and rightly so. - we need better mechanisms to help protect data and data custodians, and by doing so we enable greater & wider data sharing and collaboration. Raluca Ada Popa's recent research showed that her encryption methods work with a range of applications and provide a level of protection that firewalls cannot: even if attackers break in, they have no way to decipher the data. A recent use case sees this new approach applicable to hospitals, to help share and aggregate patient records. It can accelerate innovation if considered during the ideation/ design phase! https://www.technologyreview.com/lists/innovators-under-35/2019/visionary/raluca-ada-popa/ research: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/334534372_Helen_Maliciously_Secure_Coopetitive_Learning_for_Linear_Models
