Data Privacy

Data privacy addresses the confidentiality of customer or entity data that is processed in a system or application.  There are numerous international, country or state regulations in place to ensure customer privacy is protected.  Organizations may face potential legal and liability concerns if data privacy requirements are not adhered to.  Data privacy should also be an ethical concern.

Data privacy should include procedures and a documented privacy policy that describes how the organization will protect the privacy of registered customers or users of the website or business services.

Data privacy safeguards should include, but not limited to:
  • Description of the data types collected (e.g., name, address, e-mail, etc.).  Ensure only the minimum amount of data is collected and no more to meet business requirements.
  • Justification for collecting the data (e.g., for mailing lists, fulfill customer orders)
  • Links to other sites: ensure users are aware of other sites' privacy policies and data protections and need to understand linked sites are not under control of your organization
  • Data protection mechanisms: ensure appropriate encryption controls in place for customer or personal data that is stored or in transit
  • Cookies: ensure usage of cookies are in adherence to applicable laws and regulations and are not used to gather sensitive personal information. Typical usage of cookies include performance monitoring or website usage statistics to help enhance the customer experience and website.  Customers should also be given the option to decline cookies (sometimes known as "do not track" setting in client browser), if preferred.
  • Sharing of information: full disclosure should be made in writing to customers on how (or if) customer data is to be shared with third parties.  Customers should be given the option to decline the sharing of their personal information and should also be documented in the privacy policy.

It is imperative that organizations are committed to data privacy and to implement the appropriate security procedures and policies as part of their overall security program.
