Privacy in a data-driven world
Data privacy is a big deal in today’s day and age. The need for privacy and compliance tools and regulations have come to the forefront. More importantly, the centralized structure of the internet has been the perfect loophole for hackers and data thieves.
As a result, it is imperative for internet users to take control of their private information and protect it from unauthorized access.

One of them is by using a virtual private network (VPN) service. According to the infographic below, a VPN is a security service that allows you to connect to the internet safely via a server that lets you hide your online activities.
In essence, a Virtual Private Network serves as an intermediary or middleman between you and the internet. Instead of directly connecting to the web, your data goes to the VPN server before connecting to the internet.

Also, all the data you transfer to the server is encrypted, thereby serving as another level of protection.
