About this book
This book offers the latest research results and predictions in data protection with a special focus on post-pandemic society. This book also includes various case studies and applications on data protection. It includes the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, federated learning, Metaverse, cryptography and cybersecurity. Data protection has burst onto the computer security scene due to the increased interest in securing personal data.
Data protection is a key aspect of information security where personal and business data need to be protected from unauthorized access and modification. The stolen personal information has been used for many purposes such as ransom, bullying and identity theft. Due to the wider usage of the Internet and social media applications, people make themselves vulnerable by sharing personal data. This book discusses the challenges associated with personal data protection prior, during and post COVID-19 pandemic. Some of these challenges are caused by the technological advancements (e.g. Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML) and ChatGPT).
In order to preserve the privacy of the data involved, there are novel techniques such as zero knowledge proof, fully homomorphic encryption, multi-party computations are being deployed. The tension between data privacy and data utility drive innovation in this area where numerous start-ups around the world have started receiving funding from government agencies and venture capitalists. This fuels the adoption of privacy-preserving data computation techniques in real application and the field is rapidly evolving. Researchers and students studying/working in data protection and related security fields will find this book useful as a reference.

Yogachandran Rahulamathavan is a Senior Lecturer and the Programme Director for MSc Cyber Security and Data Analytics at Loughborough University’s London Campus in the UK. Yoga obtained his PhD degree from Loughborough University in mathematical optimisation techniques for information processing in 2012. His research interest is in developing novel security protocols to advance machine learning techniques to solve complex privacy issues. Currently focussing on postquantum encryption techniques to develop privacy-preserving machine learning algorithms. Currently, Dr Rahul coordinates a UK-India project between Loughborough University London, IIT Kharagpur, India and City, University of London. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and an Associate Editor for the IEEE Access journal.
Dr. Deepthi Ratnayake is a university academic, a researcher, and an author with nearly 30 years' experience in industry, defence and academia in the areas of cyber security, networking, and information systems management. She currently serves as a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science (Cyber Security and Networks) and is a member of Cyber Security Research Group within the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science (PECS) at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. Deepthi is also an executive officer of Information Security Specialist Group of British Computer Society (BCS-ISSG), an associate editor of Information Security Journal: A Global Perspective, and a Cyber Security Columnist at BCS ITNow quarterly magazine. Deepthi obtained her PhD in Probe Request Attack Detection in Wireless LANs using Intelligent Techniques. Her research interests are intruder detection and prevention using intelligent techniques, ISM automation and security in humanoids. She has delivered several academic and professional talks, has published in refereed national/international conferences and has authored journal articles of high impact. She also regularly contributes to policy advisory and reaches wider audiences through her articles on current hot topics. She is also keen on bridging the gap between business needs and cyber security education and cyber-crime prevention. She has organised many collaborative events that included participation of university academics & students, professional bodies, industry and government agencies.
