To me, Privacy is a legislative driver to do “the right thing” Data Protection is an “activity” to work on Privacy. You cannot have Privacy without Security (hence “data” protection, it’s only about system/infrastructure protection) During the ramp-up of the GDPR between 2016 and 2018, Data Protection companies all used the approach “thou shall protect what thy have”…. Where Privacy is more aimed towards “thou shall only have what thy need”….. With a background in Data Protection and a passion for Privacy, my statement is kicking in open doors…. “what you don’t have, you can’t loose”… It’s almost like the Yin and Yang, complete opposites, but deeply connected to each other… 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Elisavet D. 1 Question 21 Answers 0 Best Answers 21 Points View Profile Elisavet D.

Privacy is a single human right, with an unfortunate association with the concept of secrecy. That can wrongfully lead people to assume protection bets are off as soon as something is public. I’m NOT saying that’s how decent professionals practice Data Privacy, I am suggesting its an unfortunate connotation. Data Protection, by contrast, has its own problems. Placing Data at the centre vs people, but it’s better understood to be about protection against infringement of all human rights. Setting all that aside I’ve largely stepped back from these debates elsewhere. I learned my lesson from the InfoSec vs Cybersecurity battles of the nineties and naughties. It’s about centring the protection on people, challenging harmfully narrow definitions, and just carrying on. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
