“Data privacy” (also known as “information privacy” or “data protection”) is the branch of data security that deals with the ways personal and work data are captured, stored, accessed, and shared. To ensuring data privacy, organizations need to comply with all existing data protection laws, regulations, and directives. Data privacy is a critical area of business and HR. Today companies need to be vigilant and transparent about which data they use, how they use it, and why.
Regional data privacy laws (like the European GDPR) put additional requirements on companies to protect data.
