This white paper contends that data protection to meet today's and tomorrow's requirements needs to provide stronger, more flexible protection mechanisms around the data itself.
It reviews the issues surrounding data protection today, then assesses what properties data protection mechanisms should have to meet current and future requirements, and considers why current technologies don't deliver what is required.
It goes on to propose data protection principles for evaluating how adequately any given data protection mechanism performs in meeting key requirements.
Having painted this canvas, it looks at the evolution of past measures to protect data, and from that derives a step-by-step path predicting how data protection can be developed to meet the security needs of the future.
