SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Feb 19, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — SpiderOak — the ‘zero-knowledge’ privacy cloud technologies provider — announces the first annual Penetralia Event. The interactive event will help shape thought, understanding and lead discussion around privacy and its evolution in technology.
Penetralia takes place the evening of February 25, the opening night of this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco, and is being co-sponsored by the global encrypted communications service provider Silent Circle.
The definition of Penetralia reads:
“As our data is more and more exposed in the world, we are now starting to ask the important questions. Is privacy a right or a privilege? Should you care about privacy if you have nothing to hide? How does privacy differ from security? And what does privacy mean in the digital age?
The goal of Penetralia is to gather folks from across industries to further the privacy-in-technology conversation,” said SpiderOak CEO and Co-Founder Ethan Oberman. “The underlying premise behind the cloud is that all data is stored or available in plaintext. From an end user perspective, this means everything you upload — from financial documents to family photos to vital company information — exists in a readable format by someone other than you. The ‘zero-knowledge’ concept propels the dialogue forward by enabling something previously not possible — maintaining privacy in a cloud environment.”
Penetralia is an invite-only event. If you would like to attend, please email email@example.com
Further, at RSA SpiderOak will formally announce a first-ever open source ‘zero-knowledge’ application framework. This framework will empower both companies and developers alike to take full advantage of ‘zero-knowledge’ cryptography and encryption standards through a lightweight utility that runs via the browser.
“We believe the ‘zero-knowledge’ application framework will deepen the divide between companies that need access to your data as part of their business model as opposed to those who don’t. Think Google or Facebook on one side and Evernote or 37signals on the other,” exclaimed Oberman. “Given the growing concerns around liability and increased number of attacks, why would companies choose to store data in plaintext when there is no financial benefit in doing so? There is no longer an excuse.”
