WHAT MAKES DATA PROTECTION SO IMPORTANT?
The rise of digital technologies has made it very easy to gather, transfer and process data. Protecting personal data is therefore now more important than ever.
In European law, the protection of personal data has been established as a fundamental right in regulations regarding information privacy. Although many people worry that strangers can see their PIN at a cash machine or secretly eavesdrop on their phone calls, there is little awareness for privacy and data protection when it comes to the internet. Only a minority knows what happens with their data online, how they can protect themselves or how to recognize securely encrypted services.
Companies in Europe are obligated to comply with data protection laws. Companies worldwide are obligated to comply to this law, too, if they want to offer their services or products to European citizens. These laws, however, are not always straightforward when it comes to their implementation. Mistakes made by companies in their data protection policies can be costly for them as well as their employees, customers and business partners.
