Definition of Communications Privacy

The confidentiality and security of communication data are protected by a collection of procedures and policies known as communications privacy.

To safeguard the sender and recipient's identities, the content of communications, and transmissions themselves against illegal access or use, these include safeguards including encryption, network security, access control, data pseudonymization, and firewalls.

Furthermore, a company's handling of personal information supplied through their websites and/or other services, such as adhering to GDPR rules, may be referred to as communications privacy.

Companies should make sure they have clear policies in place governing the gathering, storing, and usage of client data and that information about their security standards is readily available.
