The book will review how new and old privacy-preserving techniques can provide practical protection for data in transit, use, and rest. We will position techniques like Data Integrity and Ledger and will provide practical lessons in Data Integrity, Trust, and data’s business utility.

Based on a good understanding of new and old technologies, emerging trends, and a broad experience from many projects in this domain, this book will provide a unique context about the WHY (requirements and drivers), WHAT (what to do), and HOW (how to implement), as well as reviewing the current state and major forces representing challenges or driving change, what you should be trying to achieve and how you can do it, including discussions of different options. We will also discuss WHERE (in systems) and WHEN (roadmap). Unlike other general or academic texts, this book is being written to offer practical general advice, outline actionable strategies, and include templates for immediate use. It contains diagrams needed to describe the topics and Use Cases and presents current real-world issues and technological mitigation strategies. The inclusion of the risks to both owners and custodians provides a strong case for why people should care.
