DECRYPT.CO - Jan 21 - Some 70K photos were hacked on Tinder. Here's what can be done to prevent such major data breaches. "Centralization is the apex of vulnerability. When all of the data is stored in one location, usually all it takes is one 'key' to access the files on the server," said Jeff Kirdeikis, the CEO of Uptrennd - a decentralized social media platform. In Kirdeikis' opinion, there is only one way to combat this central issue: distribute and decentralize data. However, decentralization isn't without its faults. The fragmentation of data over several locations heightens costs and increases complications.
