''' '' THE WORLD AHEAD '' '''

BEING ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - for every subject in the world - comes with great responsibility and honour for rules, regulations and laws. !WOW! your very best, for a perpetual planet and in building a new great world.

''STUDENTS : Explorer, adventurers, scientists. Girls and Boys. Men and Women will always broaden the horizons, for all humankind to share. Welcome, All, to Ecosystem 2011.''

IN NETHERLANDS - SJOERA NAS - A DUTCH CONSULTANT, helped force tech companies to make major changes in handling ''student data''.

HEADING FOR THE GREATEST GOAL : The world just can't ignore 'Quantum Students, Quantum Entanglements.' I trust, I am clear?

Quantum Technologies - which take advantage of the strange fuzziness of the subatomic real, will have a profound impact on our society - from medicine and materials science to banking and clean energy.

Such technologies, which include communications, computing, quantum sensing and simulation, will bring many benefits. But they will also make a necessary dramatic shift in the global cyber-security architecture - a process that will start in earnest during 2023.

Quantum computers are still in development. But as they become more powerful and more reliable, they will pose a threat to how we transmit and store confidential data including bank transactions, sensitive government information and intellectual property.

THAT is because unlike existing computers, quantum computers will be able to crack the encryption systems that provide secure data communication and storage, and underpin the global economy.

CRIMINALS AND OTHER ADVERSARIES know that this will be possible one day - and they are not waiting to get their hands on sensitive data. They are already carrying out ''store now, decrypt later'' [SNDL] attacks - stealing data for future decryption with quantum computers.

DUTCH TECHNICAL EXPERTISE HAS HELPED privacy auditors gain unusually granular insights into how some of the largest software companies amass personal data on hundreds of millions of people.

It has also allowed Dutch experts to call out companies for practices that appear to violate European rules.

Some large American tech companies balk at first, said Sjoera Nas, a senior adviser at the Privacy Company, a consulting firm in The Hague that conducts the data risk assessments for the Dutch government and other institutions.

''We are so small that, initially, many cloud providers just look at us, raise an eyebrow and say : ' So what? You're the Netherlands. You don't matter,''' said Ms. Nas, who helped lead the Dutch negotiations with Microsoft, Zoom and Google.

But then, she said, the companies begin to understand that the Dutch teams are negotiating compliance for the Netherlands with data protection rules that also apply across the European Union.

''Then the tech providers realize that they won't be able to supply their services to 450 million people,'' Ms.Nas said.

The Dutch effort began to gather steam in 2018, after the country's Ministry of Justice and Security commissioned an audit of an enterprise version of Microsoft Office.

The report said Microsoft systematically collected up to 25,000 types of user activity like spelling changes and software performance details from programs like PowerPoint, World and Outlook without providing documentation or giving administrators an option to limit that data gathering.

In a blog post at the time, Ms. Nas, whose company conducted the audit, described the results as ''alarming.''

Consumer software typically collects reams of use and performance data from users' devices and cloud services - diagnostic data that the U.S. tech firms often freely employ for business purposes like developing new services.

But under the E.U. law, diagnostic data tied to an identifiable user is considered personal information, just like the emails a person sends or the photos they post.

That means companies must limit their use of diagnostic personal data and provide people with copies of it upon request. The Dutch audit found Microsoft had failed to do so.

Microsoft agreed to address those issues. In 2019, the company introduced a new privacy and transparency policy for cloud customers worldwide that included ''changes requested by the Dutch'' Ministry of Justice, Ms. Brill wrote in a company blog post.

Microsoft also released a data viewer tool to allow customers to see the ''raw diagnostic data'' that Office sent to the company.

Ms. Brill said the discussions with the Dutch helped Microsoft embrace European views on data protection, a shift in business culture that she said was more significant than the software changes.

''It begins with culture and then making sure that culture pivot shows up in our products and our software and, most importantly, in the way we describe what we do to our customers,'' Ms. Brill said.
