What is data privacy and security?
Likewise, people ask, what is privacy and security?
Privacy assures that personal information (and sometimes corporate confidential information as well) are collected, processed (used), protected and destroyed legally and fairly. Security controls limit access to personal information and protect against its unauthorized use and acquisition.
Furthermore, what does data privacy mean? Data privacy, also called information privacy, is the aspect of information technology (IT) that deals with the ability an organization or individual has to determine what data in a computer system can be shared with third parties.
Similarly, you may ask, what is the difference between privacy and data security?
Security is about the safeguarding of data, whereas privacy is about the safeguarding of user identity. Security refers to protection against the unauthorized access of data. We put security controls in place to limit who can access the information.
Why is privacy and data security so important?
Data privacy has always been important. A single company may possess the personal information of millions of customers—data that it needs to keep private so that customers' identities stay as safe and protected as possible, and the company's reputation remains untarnished.
