The 28th January marks a Data Protection Day or as some call it Data Privacy Day.
Data Protection Day serves as an annual reminder to organisations to bolster their commitment to securing their data and review their data protection policies and processes. It encourages organisations not only to meet regulatory requirements but to cultivate a promote proactive data protection that infiltrates every element of your operation.
Distinguishing Data Protection from Data Privacy
While “data protection” and “data privacy” are often used interchangeably, it’s crucial to understand their subtle distinctions. Data protection involves a comprehensive approach to safeguarding information throughout its lifecycle – from collection and processing to storage and eventual disposal. This encompasses implementing robust security measures, access controls, and encryption technologies to mitigate risks.
Conversely, data privacy focuses on an individual’s right to control their personal information, ensuring transparency and control over data collection, processing, and usage. GDPR, for instance, not only mandates data protection but also emphasizes respecting individuals’ privacy rights.
