WHAT IS DATA PRIVACY AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT?

Have you ever experienced or felt that your data is getting compromised or reaching any undesired people? We give you some tips about data breach, data privacy and security?



DATA PRIVACY is always important. It is the reason behind people placing passwords to access their files that are important and have unique pins for their financials. As increasing amounts of our data becomes digitized and we share a lot of information online including our bank details and personal information, data privacy is taking on greater importance.


You, as an individual, have a lot at risk when it comes to data privacy. The more you know about it, the better you’ll be to help protect yourself from a large number of risks.


WHY IT IS IMPORTANT?

Privacy is the right of an individual to be free from unwanted surveillance. One can safely enter into one’s space and express freely about his/her opinion, that’s critical when living in a democratic country.

When data that should be kept private gets in the wrong hands, bad things can happen. For example, a data leak at a government agency could cause a disaster in the state. Hence, it is important to protect the data.


DATA PRIVACY vs DATA SECURITY –

Data Security protects data from external attackers and malicious insiders. Data Privacy governs how data is collected, shared and used.


TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA –

Use strong, unique passwords for all your online accounts.Make sure you secure your home Wi-Fi network and other devices so that criminals can’t spy on your online activity.Don’t automatically provide your card numbers just because someone asks for it. Determine if they really need it and, if so, ask how they’ll help protect it.Don’t directly discard the documents that contain your private information, shred the documents before discarding it.Don’t unnecessarily fill online forms that are of no use to you and always filter the information that you provide online.
