Data Protection and Privacy!

Although the terms “data protection” and “data privacy” are often used interchangeably, there are important differences between the two. Data privacy governs who has access to data, while data protection provides tools and policies that actually restrict access to data. Compliance rules help companies meet users’ privacy requests, and companies are responsible for taking steps to protect users’ personal data.

Data protection and privacy generally apply to personal data protection (PDP) , personal health information (PHI), personal information protection and personally identifiable information (PII). It plays an important role in business operations, development and finance. By protecting data, companies can avoid data breaches, reputation damage and better compliance.

Data safety answers rely upon technology which includes facts data loss prevention (DLP), a garage with integrated facts safety, firewalls, encryption, and endpoint safety.
