Data privacy is distinct and different from data security. Data privacy centers around the right to share our data and the way organizations must be governed and held accountable for the use of our data. Data security is focused on the policies and procedures that a company must implement to safeguard our data from any third-party unauthorized access.
Our privacy is a basic human right. And yet, nearly every day we share confidential information as a necessity to conduct our business and personal lives, hoping that the recipient respects our data and praying that our data is not misused or exploited in a way that causes us or others harm.
