Security and ethics in the Metaverse. How does Aimedis ensure maximum protection for Health City users?

Overview

The Metaverse in general is still a little more than a concept for now. Based on the researchers’ insights, we can define it as a combination of multi-users 3D virtual space merged with the physical world that allows users a more immersive and rich experience.

What are the potential threats with the currently proposed metaverse projects?

Metaverse allows people to interact and socialize with each other in a way that we have never imagined. They will use it at work, entertainment, shopping, and almost everything, which will generate a high volume of data.

How does Aimedis protect the community from security and privacy threats?

To protect customers’ data, Aimedis will ensure drawing on experience. The first lesson is to put the user’s security first. Aimedis will prohibit using third parties or mischievous cookies without permission and listening to the users of Health City.

Toxicity, harassment, and bullying.

Those are mainstream ill-mannered behaviors users have already faced. Harassment in VR is real. The Metaverse offers a vast space of freedom for every user. However, if it can’t draw a balancing line between freedom for expression and protecting its users, it would lose a large part of its audience.

Aimedis solution:

Aimedis incorporates features built into the Health City to protect users against suspicious and inappropriate interactions. Aimedis will allow easy blocking and reporting mechanisms to protect users, besides will have safe spaces and security admins that are around 24/7.

Other issues about users’ Safety

Another challenge that threatens the Metaverse’s experience is safety. The Metaverse depends on external digital devices such as virtual reality headsets and IoT devices. When users wear those headsets or other hardware devices, they can experience this platform and live immersive 3D experiences as an Avatar. The problem occurs when those virtual headsets are attacked by hackers, who might misuse this data for unethical purposes.

Aimedis solution:

Aimedis will pledge to offer complete protection for their users’ data. Medical data is shared inside Health City and their connected wallet addresses. Aimedis will add multiple layers of security that include protocols that verify transactions and instantly report and prohibit suspicious transactions.

Manipulation & Alternate Representations of Reality

That’s the fourth challenge we have to mention for its hazardous effect on corporates’ credibility. To make the picture clear for you, we will recall the memory of Nexon’s fake video.

Aimedis’ solution

Aimedis is crafting the optimal protocol to guide ethical-based decision-making. Those decisions will imply respecting users’ data and banning manipulative behaviors in the community.

Conclusion

Health City will be a one-of-a-kind Metaverse experience that will change the healthcare services on the web. Blurring the lines between reality and the virtual world will give all metaverse projects a more immersive, limitless experience. But it will also create big challenges. Privacy and Safety are on the top concerns users will expect to face. Ensuring safety and security while maintaining a solid code of ethics is the main non-negotiable basis that Aimedis pledges to ensure for the community.
