We often hear the terms Data Privacy and Data Protection, and often the two terms are blurred into one. However, it is important to understand the difference between the two to understand the role they play within your business.
Data Protection is relatively straightforward in that it is the protection of the data. Where is it stored, how is it accessed etc. Data Privacy relates to who has access to that data and why they should have access.
Cyber Savvy data privacy services are concerned with the ‘appropriate and legal use’ of personal and sensitive personal data throughout the data’s lifecycle. This includes how data is collected, processed, stored, maintained, protected and disposed of irrespective of the format and systems used.
You wouldn’t want everyone accessing the keys to your city if they didn’t need to, as it would invite greater and unnecessary risk. So when we talk about ‘Data Privacy Readiness’, it is important to understand the context of Privacy vs. Protection.
