Well, it depends on who you ask. In general, privacy is the right to comment, or freedom from interference or interference. Information privacy means the right to have some control over how your personal information is collected and used.

Most people these days ask what they think about privacy and are likely having conversations about massive data breaches, consumable technology, social media, targeted advertising misunderstandings, not to mention the Snowden revelations.

Furthermore, different cultures have different views on human rights in relation to privacy and how it should be governed. Satta king

More importantly, why is it important?

With the innovation of light speed technology, information privacy becomes more complex as more data is collected and exchanged. As the technology becomes more sophisticated (indeed, invasive), so do the uses of the data. And that leaves an extremely complex risk matrix that organizations face in ensuring that personal information is protected.

As a result, privacy has quickly become the most important consumer protection issue, if not a citizen protection issue, in the global information economy.

Privacy vs security… isn't it the same thing?

Not really. But they are cousins. Data privacy focuses on the use and management of personal data, such as implementing policies to ensure that consumers' personal information is collected, shared, and used appropriately. Security augmentation focuses on protecting data from malicious attacks and exploiting stolen data for profit. While security is essential to protecting data, addressing privacy is not enough.
