Consumer Control Over Personal Information

Cyberattacks continue to increase against a variety of consumer-facing companies with an online presense. Here at Delfigo we frequently discuss the need to give individuals more control over their personal information. The lack of control, combined with the feeling of vulnerability as result of this lack of control, could certainly have a negative impact on the future of cloud computing. In a recent article on cloud based privacy concerns that are slowing cloud adoption in Europe, the author notes work being done at HP to give the user more control over personal information: 

"Another solution being studied is to give individuals the ability in advance to set the degree of privacy control on each part of their personal information in the cloud by digitally tagging bits of the data. Under this model, a person could make an e-mail address available to marketers, while shielding a phone number and street address from unwanted solicitations. "
