The Difference Between Data Privacy and Data Security
Repeat after me, data security is not privacy. Privacy is also not data security. These two terms are often used interchangeably, but there are distinct differences as well as similarities. Yes, data security and privacy have a common goal to protect sensitive data. But they have very different approaches for achieving the same effect. Data security focuses on protecting the data from theft and breaches. Whereas privacy governs how data is being collected, shared and used. Let’s dig a little deeper to understand the differences. What is Data Security? Data security focuses on the tools that deter hackers and cybercriminals from getting to your crown jewels. Some of these tools include: permissions management, data classification, identity and access management, and user behaviorial analytics. The synergy of these tools are theoretically supposed to deter and challenge cybercriminals from stealing your intellectual property, healthcare data, financial data, and personally identifiable information.
