The importance of Data Privacy
Data is one of the most important assets worldwide and Privacy is the right of individuals to have control over their personal data. Data Privacy or information privacy is how data should be collected, stored, and shared as well as the compliance with the applicable privacy laws regarding the consent, notice, and regulatory obligations.
Data Privacy is not the same as Data Security. Data Privacy governs how data is collected, shared and used whereas Data Security protects data from compromise against unauthorized access. You need both Data Privacy and Data Security.
There are hundreds of privacy regulations worldwide, such as GDPR, CCPA and LGPD to comply with.
Organizations now have to effectively manage consumer requests, meticulously document processing activities and data transfers. They have to demonstrate compliance by managing user preferences across channels & maintain records of consent, implement advanced user interfaces and user experiences across their marketing and sales activities that collect user consent and preferences and sync them across channels for consistency.
Moreover, companies have to apply third-party risk management to ensure vendors are safeguarding their data, meet SLAs and contractual requirements.
