Digital transformations have been accelerated to accommodate the digital consumers, remote employees, and changing operational models. At the same time, we are seeing an unmatched level of cyber security threats that is driving a need for more secure data protection.

We wanted to know how the need for more secure data protection has changed over the past few years, why protecting data in use is becoming important, and the potential of technical assurance approaches as a way to overcome the limitations of operational assurances in achieving complete data privacy and security. Confidential Computing: The Future of Data Security and Trust details our findings.
