Computing on Encrypted Data: How to do the impossible

Security of data has traditionally been about securing data whilst it is at rest, or during transit between sites. But data is useless unless you actually use it. My talk will discuss how we can now compute on data whilst it is in encrypted form. I will discuss a number of applications in this space, and discuss the existing companies working and how there solutions differ.
