In this part of this tutorial, we’ll take a look at protecting privacy to help you understand the different aspects of protecting privacy. One of the important aspects of cyber security is protecting privacy. The requirement for data privacy, is to share personal data securely to authorized parties depending upon the requirement.
A data owner can provide approval to process or share the personal information with others (like corporations). So, the entity that processes, stores, or transmits the information on behalf of the owner is called a licensee.
When a third-party vendor is affianced by the license to create, receive, maintain, or transmit personal information, such entities are called data processors.
Data that remains even after erasing or formatting digital media is called Residual Data and the property to retain such data is called Data Remanence.
Delete the data from digital media (Of course, after they have been backed up) It is not usually done completely. The possibility of residual data remains. Even, in some systems, only the table entries for the data are removed.
