Data Privacy is a fundamental principle within a modern society. Data privacy is not – unlike the term may first suggest – all about data, but about the people, of whom information (data) is processed. Data privacy is a fundamental right, which refers to the protection of the personal rights of natural, living people. Every person should have the opportunity to decide, who gets which information about him on which occasion (informational self-determination).
Newgen Software Technologies Limited (“Company”) is strongly committed to protect the privacy of its customers and have taken all necessary and adequate measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity of the customer’s information and its transmission to its affiliates and third parties under the applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Keeping private data and sensitive information safe is paramount. If items like financial data, healthcare information, and other personal consumer or user data get into the wrong hands, it can create a dangerous situation. The lack of access control regarding personal information can put individuals at risk for fraud and identity theft.
Additionally, a data breach at the government level may risk the security of entire countries. And if one occurs within your company, it could make your proprietary data accessible to a competitor.
This is where data protection laws come into play. As an increasingly large portion of our lives and activities occur online, cybersecurity is an ever-growing concern.
