The challenge of Data Privacy is to use data while protecting an individual’s privacy preferences and their personally identifiable information. The fields of computer security, data security, and information security design and use software, hardware, and human resources to address this issue. Since laws and regulations related to Privacy and Data Protection are constantly changing, it is important to keep abreast of any changes in the law and to continually reassess compliance with data privacy and security regulations. When GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) went into effect in May of 2018, it increased the complexity of determining data privacy at the individual and business level.
