Privacy is defined as the fair and authorized access to and processing of users’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The processing of such personal information may involve acts such as data sharing; data recording; disclosure by transmission; data copying; data erasure or destruction; data collection, usage, and storage.
In the context of privacy, PIIs are considered to be any information that can be used to identify a user who is reasonably associated with a device. Hence, it is no surprise that Privacy and Cybersecurity both revolve around data protection objectives, challenges, requirements, and best practices. Therefore, the authorized access and fair use of users’ PII is connected to the assurance of the cybersecurity goals of confidentiality and integrity.
