Data Protection Story
Data protection is not a new concept – in one form or another it has been a concern since there has been written language. There have always been secrets and those that want to access them. The means to protect this data was called classic cryptography, which is the method of encryption that use “pen and pad” or even simple mechanical aids. After the invention of complex machines in the early 20th century a more sophisticated and efficient means of encryption was created that could offer even greater complexity and thus better security for the time.
With the invention of computers the field took another big leap forward and in some ways back. The computer was limited in storage, compute power and in many cases function, as the functions had not been created yet. The need to protect data and communications on this new medium was serious. The answer was creating increasingly complex algorithms to encrypt and decrypt data. This practice continues roughly the same way today with newer, more powerful, generations of computers making previous generations’ algorithms obsolete.
