Why we see video safety as an important trend
Video platforms have become an integral part of our daily lives, from social media to video conferencing and live streaming. However, more personal and sensitive information is shared on these platforms, it is crucial to consider the safety and security of the users. Not just to be compliant to GDPR.
To actually consider how you protect your customers personal data. We believe in the importance of video platform safety and here are some of the measures that should be taken to ensure the protection of user data and privacy.
Why is it important?
Video platforms can be a breeding ground for cyber threats such as hacking, phishing, and identity theft. Personal information, such as email addresses and credit card information, can be vulnerable to theft if proper security measures are not in place. Additionally, users' privacy can be compromised if their information is shared without their consent or if they are subjected to online harassment or bullying.
Why you should care
Video platforms play a crucial role in connecting people from all over the world. They provide a space for communication, collaboration, and the sharing of ideas and information. However, it is important to ensure that users are protected from the potential dangers of these platforms. This includes the protection of their personal information, privacy, and safety from cyber threats and online harassment.
Measures for Video Platform Safety
Data encryption is the process of converting sensitive information into a code that is unreadable without a key. Encrypting user data helps to prevent hackers from accessing sensitive information and helps to protect user privacy.
Two factor authentication
Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to the login process by requiring a user to enter both a password and a code sent to their phone. This helps to prevent unauthorised access to user accounts.
Verifying the identity of users can help to prevent impersonation and cyber bullying. Video platforms can require users to provide personal information such as their email address and government-issued identification to verify their identity.
Video platforms should have a reporting system in place that allows users to report inappropriate behaviour, such as cyber bullying and harassment. This helps to create a safe and secure environment for all users.
Regular security updates
Regular security updates are necessary to address new and emerging cyber threats. Video platforms should implement regular security updates to protect user data and privacy.
By implementing measures such as data encryption, two-factor authentication, user verification, user reporting, and regular security updates, video platforms can protect user data and privacy, and create a safe and secure environment for all users. The protection of user information and privacy should be a top priority for all video platforms, and it is important for you as a provider or a user to be aware of the potential risks and take necessary precautions to protect themselves.
