As the technological world advances, so does the need for data protection, i.e. laws designed to protect your personal data. This is essential since every time you access the internet or provide personal information to utilise a service, the private data shared can get into the wrong hands.
Even without your knowledge, data and information about you is forwarded to companies and agencies that you are likely to have never interacted with. The only way citizens and consumers can feel secure in today’s time is through strong data protection practices so their information is safe from exploitation. The need for data protection has surged as the amount of data created and stored continues to expand.
