Is your Information Secure as you Browse the Internet?

— By Gregory Fisher, Founder and CEO of HubFul.com, September 8, 2021


Cybersecurity is a major issue in retail and retail experts say that retailers will need to make changes to their operations if they want to stay relevant.

The current cybersecurity landscape for retailers is already difficult, with cyber-attacks expected to cost the industry $2 trillion by 2021. The key vulnerability is that retailers often operate many different eCommerce sites, which can lead to them opening themselves up for attacks.

But there’s still a long way to go before everyone becomes adequately prepared for the threats of tomorrow.

It has become a trend for data brokers to sell information about their users personal information to make money. The main reason behind the selling of this personal information is that many clients or companies are willing to pay a lot of money for it. This should be the opposite because it leads to identity theft, being put on the Dark Web for anyone who wants it can pay a little bit to destroy you and everything that you have worked so hard for.

There are many that simply are not aware of the risks that they take on when they willingly give their information to a website. HubFul.com is different. We only use the smallest amount of demographic data, like your city, state, etc. that only identifies you as to the relation to the types of services and products that you are interested in seeing on our platform. We hate spammers and all the businesses that we will have on our platform will have to adhere to a Strict Standard when it comes to you and your privacy. We don’t believe in companies getting your information to bombard you with ads wherever you go on the internet. It’s time to change that! And that’s one of our missions, is to let you have your internet browsing to yourself. If you want to look around our platform, that’s fine. If you want to leave our platform, that’s fine too. We are not going to follow you wherever you roam on the internet. Ever. There is no need for us to know what other sites you visit after you leave our platform.

So, we are going to work on redefining our platform and work on building a new encryption standard that takes a brand new technology that has recently come to light and the possibilities are endless as to the security levels that this new technology can do to protect users all over the world who use the internet on a daily basis.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has stated that they will be investigating this issue. They want to know what the rules are and if these companies have been breaking them or not.

A recent report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) predicts that data ownership is going to be a major issue in the future.

Data will be a currency for a lot of organizations and companies. The WEF estimates that it could generate up to $3 trillion annually by 2025. It has been estimated that there are around 1,500 data brokers in the world. These companies have access to an average of 1,200 data points per person, which includes product purchases, web browsing history, social media posts and more.

There are many use cases for data selling such as targeted advertising and personalized pricing models.

Over the years, the internet has turned into a very powerful tool. It is now an everyday part of our lives. It has become indispensable to many people in many different ways. This increase in power also comes with an increase in responsibility on the part of the companies that provide us with this service.

This responsibility involves respecting our privacy when possible and not collecting more data than they need when not possible. The protection of user data is one of the most important things for online service providers today, and it should be something that we all pay attention to as well.

The biggest concern in the world of AI and machine learning is privacy. How do we ensure that we are not exposing data points about our users, especially when we are collecting so much data? Data privacy and security is a major concern for all companies in this age of technology and it should be the priority for every company.

It’s not just about protecting your own data but also what you collect from your users. It is vital to understand how to use the information you have collected through data collection tools such as forms, surveys, etc. Collecting user feedback will also help you in understanding how people interact with your product or service and make necessary changes to improve their experience with you and your product or service.

With our platform, we are creating a new system that will only be used on our platform to customize your experience while on our platform. From your feedback to our HubFulTalks platform, our users will be at the forefront of this new trend that leads to a safer internet for everyone!
