Watch Now

Abstract: Information security today is said to be the need of the hour for businesses with a digital presence, and the same implies to digital users. While both security and privacy of the data are part of the information security approach, the information type and the responsibility for security define the difference between data security and privacy. Where privacy is the right of the user to control how their personal and sensitive information is viewed and used by others, data security is defined as the responsibility of business and government organizations to protect and store their user’s data. Security generally refers to authorized access to sensitive data, while privacy is part of the policies describing the security roles and responsibilities. While privacy initially depends upon the agreement between the user and businesses, government regulations and compliances provide mandatory protection to digital users and force organizations to comply with achieving set data privacy policies. The current webinar aims to discuss various aspects of data security and privacy while discussing their difference and dependence on each other.

Key takeaways:

  • What is privacy in information security
  • Relationship between data privacy and cybersecurity
  • Is security without privacy possible
  • How security awareness brings security and privacy together
  • Privacy and Security vs. Compliance
