In Europe, security systems are built with the end goal to safe-keep the privacy of sensitive data. In the U.S., security systems are architected with the goal of securing sensitive infrastructures. Recent revelations about the NSA snooping and international backlash demonstrate the dramatic international differences in privacy vs. security values. Those differences also play out in how security systems are architected. Beginning with “what is the data being protected?” vs. “how do we keep the bad guys out?” will lead to two very different security solutions.

Malte Pollmann is CEO of Utimaco, a worldwide leading manufacturer of hardware-based security solutions, providing hardware security modules (HSM) to manage cryptographic keys and prevent third-party data breaches. At the core of industries seeking to deploy HSM technology lies the need to secure sensitive consumer, corporate and citizen data, as well as advanced IP-based networks in the face of connected devices and the Internet of Things.
