Silo Busting 15: Anshu Sharma and Sam Rehman Open Up About Zero-Trust Data Vaults

Data sharing in the age of COVID can be, according Anshu Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO of Skyflow, a matter of life and death. Sharma, the latest guest on our #CybersecurityByDesign series, explains that Skyflow’s data privacy vaults are being used, right now, for COVID testing and vaccine information. This urgent topic reunites Sharma and Sam Rehman, our Chief Information Security Officer and SVP, (both of whom worked at Oracle years ago) to unlock for us the mysteries of zero-trust privacy vaults. The pair talk about data privacy, look at contemporary encryption techniques, and consider how airlines, banks, Facebook, and the VA all deal with data. But the bass note of their conversation is COVID data: “all of this information needs to flow, but we have to be able to do this without compromising anybody’s privacy. This is not an unsolvable problem. The sad part is a lot of people think this is unsolvable but I think it’s totally solvable with today’s technology. If we solve this problem, we can save a lot of lives.” And that’s nor a mere assertion; it’s a fact.
