Data Privacy

Pun intended, but a lot of organizations have their hand in your data cookie jar.  Data privacy, sometimes also referred to as information privacy, is an area of data protection that concerns the proper handling of sensitive data in order to meet regulatory requirements to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the data.

Many people are confused by the terms Data Privacy and Data Security and believe that keeping personal and sensitive data secure from hackers means that they are automatically compliant with data privacy regulations. This is not the case. Data security protects data from being compromised by external attackers and malicious insiders, whereas data privacy governs how the data is collected, shared and used.
