The correct circulation of data, the related protection through appropriate IT security measures and compliance with national and European regulations have now become top priorities for any economic operator, particularly as a result of the widespread distribution of hi-tech digital tools which allow the use, availability and sharing of data beyond the physical (dematerialisation), time-based (real-time) and jurisdictional (cloud) confines traditionally focused on and regulated by law.
Privacy, understood not only as the right to confidentiality, but rather as the right to data use and protection, a genuinely valuable resource for any company wishing to compete and stand out, also thanks to sophisticated customer data profiling and marketing techniques, has become a crucial element of any policy of company compliance and strategic growth on the reference markets, and a real litmus test of the asset corporate governance of any successful company.
The spread and rapid success of the Internet and e-commerce have transformed simple personal data into information that can generate profit.
