In the not too distant past, many organizations viewed the data that they kept on individuals as business property, to be used as the organization determined appropriate. Today, many of the world’s leading markets have adopted regulations that restrict how and when organizations may use those data, and afford the subject individuals rights to access and correct those data. Nations have even adopted regulations that impact how an organization may use such data outside of that nation. Consumer awareness of privacy matters has also risen, creating marketing risks to organizations that are not concerned with data privacy.
