Online Data and Security

We’re constantly confronted by security issues online whether it’s privacy policies on a website we visit or a secure password for our email accounts. According to the results of a recent study conducted by AnchorFree, a lot of Americans are changing how they view privacy policies as well as passwords and cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity is the process of protecting against cyber attacks that aim to compromise the integrity, availability or confidentiality of networks and information systems. It involves identifying threats, evaluating systems, training employees and establishing an incident response plan.

A cyberattack can expose your personal information and data information to third parties who could make use of it for financial gain, to use for social engineering, or even to launch an active attack on the system or networks of the organization. They could also infect your devices through ransomware. Ransomware blocks a device or network, and demands payment to unlock it.

Privacy is the right to control and keep your personal data private. It’s about understanding when information is being collected, how it’s being used and where it’s going which is why you are entitled to review the conditions of service for each website that collects data from you.

Data privacy is the process of making sure that only those with the appropriate rights can access or manage your data and using secure encryption to stop unauthorized access. Data privacy practices can help reduce the risk of data loss from accidental or malicious leaks as well as breaches, and can protect you from identity theft and other forms of cybercrime.
