Privacy Leakage are Serious in Bank, Tenement and Telecom Area in Hong Kong

It is reported that according to Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, Hong Kong with more and more residents attach more importance to privacy protection, these years the office has experienced a rising number of citizens who make queries to them. Last year alone, they received a total number of 19053 queries, which increased for 2 per cent. These complaints mainly involved in some private institutions, which refer to bank, tenement and telecom companies.

The fact is that, people now value their privacy more than they ever had before, that is not hard to tell from the number of people who using file and folder encryption and other data security software to safeguard their online and offline activities.

Last year the Office has received 1213 complaints, decreased about 18%, comparing to the former year (2011) which is 1486. Among all the complaints, the public or governmental organizations occupy about 1%, and the field that received the most complaints are police, housing, medical care and social welfare areas. There are about 50 privacy leakage relate to the government sectors incidences which more or less surprise the public.

About students in school, they often use USB drive disk to store files and studying materials, so that they value USB security very much, while how about the protection of personal information they put online. The fact is that, opening the searching site in Hong Kong, anyone can view and get information about students. According to the Office, these information include name, student number, their parents’ phone number and e-mail are put on the net by 11 education organizations, which will result in illegal use of the data by criminals.

Nowadays, data breach and data leakage of personal files are rampant, so it is urgent to take measures to protect private data.

How to Password Protect Shared Folder on Lan and Network?

The post is going to show my opinion of the following two topics:
1. What will users care when sharing folders on Network(both Lan and internet)?
2. What is the best software for protecting shared folders on Lan and Network?

Topic 1. What will users care when sharing folder and files on Lan/Network?

The first thing users may care is how to block unauthorized access to their shared folder and files. They might want to share their documents with one or several certain people, for example, members in their same work project. But they don’t allow others to access the shared files.

Topic 2. What is the best software to protect shared folder and files on Network?

Before this topic, I’d like to talk something about encryption algorithm. I think this concept is not strange to all PC users, never mind you are a expert or general home user. You can learn more definitions about this concept from Wikipedia. The most advanced and popular encryption algorithm used by programmers is AES. It is widely used in password protecting folders, files, office documents, USB drives, hard drives etc. With this type of encryption algorithm, it is hardly to decrypt the protected data by hackers or common people.

Now, users may notice that the best software to protect shared folder and files on Network should at least use the AES technique. There are a few good company that are using it such as KakaSoft (all its encryption tools are using AES).
