The End of Passive Trust

A data breach is a confirmed incident when a sensitive, confidential, or otherwise protected data has been accessed and disclosed in an unauthorized fashion.

In recent days, Facebook became a latest victim of data breach vulnerability. Due to this, its official owner Mr Zuckerberg converted his apology in actions, due to the recent data breach on digital trust. It is challenging for them to face the overall challenges every month as nearly 2 million users log into Facebook, and so it’s impossible for their team to rebuild the pristine trust.

The end of passive trust deals with the data breaches that takes place among various countries, which may affect the customer personal information’s like name, contact details, and phone number.

Digital Trust :

Digital Trust mainly intends in four ways; users attitude towards technology and related companies, users behaviours and tolerance for “frictions” in completing digital transactions; the trustworthiness of the digital infrastructure; and users’ overall experience.

To establish digital trust, every member of the ecosystem must comply to do their part in securing mutually valuable assets, and to weave a proper digital trust into the environment. Every organization requires an integrated security architecture which can provide the overall transparency with control from top to bottom, across the entire distributed technology.

Countries that are generally not as advanced in digital options, are moving up the curve quickly – such as Malaysia, Colombia, India and Indonesia. In digital experience, either because of poor network quality or delays in completing the digital finance transactions could lead to some data breach.

Data Breach Maintained by Controller :

The above architecture diagram clearly explains the workflow of data controller; it provides some information about who is the data controller and what are his working procedures. The controller detects every data breach and based on the breach results, it segregates the risk level for each breach. If the risk rating is medium, the data controller should notify the issue to the supervisory authority. If there are no issues, the data controller can neglect the issue. When the breach rating is higher, the controller should notify the issue to the particular individual who is responsible for it and also the alternate remediations should be provided for fixing the problem.

Check if your Accounts have been Affected :

Data breaches take place in our daily life, and many users credential data are exposed on the internet like the contact details, PAN card details, Aadhar card details, etc. I have attached some user data that were exposed on the internet

In meantime, consumers can check their information exposure through some sites like HaveIBeenPwned, a free tool developed by security researcher Troy Hunt that logs credentials accessed by these breaches. Consumers can also monitor their credit report to shut down fraudulent activity as quick as possible.

Data Breach protection by GDPR:

Not every Organization can wait to address GDPR requirements. Here you can use the identity and access management setup to play a vital role for both employees and customers.

Customer identity and access management solutions provide critical capabilities, which helps you to not only compile with GDPR (General Data Production Regulation) but also helps to check the customer’s details, data access governance, and application security. These are the unique opportunities to build customer trust during your digital transformation journey.

Data Access and Rectification:

The data subject that can access the personal data are stored, collected, and updated to the individual who can access the data later when it’s needed.


The Data subject is used as the right to ask the controller to “forget”, or erase all personal data and other regulations required.

Data Protection by Design:

The GDPR introduces new obligations that require you to integrate data protection concerns into every aspect of processing activities. Data protection by design and by default is not a new one and it is only the essential version of GDPR. Data protection by design is ultimately an approach that ensures you to consider privacy and data protection issues at the design phase of any system, service, product, or process that takes place throughout the lifecycle.

Data Protection by design has broad applications which are cited below as examples:

  • Developing new IT systems, services, products, and processes that involve personal processing data.

  • Physical Design.

  • Embarking on data sharing initiatives or using personal data for new purposes.

The above architecture clearly describes the developing of a site and the application usage types. At the final stage, the auditor rechecks for security issues and segregates the data in a separate format between the trusted and untrusted storage uses.


Information breaches are the most concerned issue in digital security world, as they’re still predominantly growing despite security defenses. Due to these sort of information breaches, associations are actualizing GDPR, keeping in mind the end goal to decrease the information ruptures. To decrease these kind of information leakages, the following preventive measures must be implemented:

  • Never use the same password for multiple sites.

  • Change your password frequently.

  • Be aware of sharing your details with anyone, e.g. SIM registration, or for some payment registrations, etc.  

  • Using a password manager makes it easy. Two-factor authentication, which requires a second form of identification like a code sent to a phone or email, is another functional layer of security.

  • Do not register on any fake link sent to your mail. Check before you register in any account, whether it is an authorized one or not.

Last but not the least:

Many people whom we’ve known, both far and near have expressed their grievance for the turmoil they’ve faced during the tedious process of searching out recent and most destructive cyberattacks. Taking those worries into concern, we decided to do a favor. We prepare a report termed as Threatsploit Adversary report which has the global accumulation of significant cyberattacks, the damages these attacks imposed on organizations, and much more. Rather than surfing here and there, just a single click on our report will make you get the one’s you’ve wanted, at ease.
