Learn more about data privacy and data compliance

Data privacy is a subset of data protection concerned with the protection and access of personal data. It's important that individuals have the ability to determine for themselves how and why their personal data is accessible by others. In some jurisdictions, there are laws governing data privacy.

Data security is related to keeping any type of data safe from attack or corruption. Data privacy is related to the safeguarding of personally identifiable information and, specifically, the proper usage of that information.

Some of the laws and regulatory compliance frameworks meant to protect data privacy include GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), national data protection laws in countries like Canada and Japan, and the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act). Additionally there are many industry-specific regulations such as HIPAA in the United States which focuses on personal healthcare data.
