Generally speaking, privacy is the right to be left alone, or freedom from interference or intrusion. Information privacy is the right to have some control over how personal information is collected and used.

Ask most people these days what they think of when they think of privacy and they will likely mention massive data breaches, identity theft,wearable technology, social networking and targeted advertising errors.

In addition, various cultures have widely differing views on what a person's rights are when it comes to privacy and how it should be regulated.

With speed-of-light technological innovation, information privacy is becoming more complex by the minute as more data is being collected and exchanged. As technology gets more sophisticated and invasive, so do the uses of data. That leaves organizations facing a complex risk matrix for ensuring personal information is protected.

As a result, privacy has emerged as arguably the most significant consumer protection issue - if not citizen protection issue - in the global information economy.

Data privacy is focused on the use and governance of personal data, such as putting policies in place to ensure consumers' personal information is being collected, shared and used in appropriate ways. Security focuses more on protecting data from malicious attacks and the exploitation of stolen data for profit. While security is necessary for protecting data, it is not sufficient for addressing privacy.

Organizations that do not do privacy correctly are at risk of government enforcement, class action lawsuits, financial ruin, damaged reputation and loss of customer loyalty. In other words, privacy is now a necessity of doing business. That is where we come in. We are the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
