Thrills! Perils! Data Privacy in the Metaverse


Conventional data protection approaches, which focus on enterprise data centers, will not be sufficient to ensure data privacy in the metaverse.

The metaverse has barely taken root, but it is already predicted to create an astounding valuation of US$ 5 trillion by 2030 and to multiply data usage by 20 times by 2032.

The metaverse creates new levels of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) in ways that allow us to create wholly separate—or aligned—virtual lives. Intricate personal details will be read by devices to create the most accurate digital representation of individuals in the metaverse to prevent people from pretending that they are someone else.

The metaverse’s functionality will depend on its ability to process information quickly, which will be facilitated by AI and edge processing. However, there is a need to build these experiences on the core foundation of trust, ethics, data privacy, and governance.
