Data Security refers to the process of protecting data from unauthorized access and data corruption throughout its lifecycle. Data security includes data encryption, tokens, and key management practices that protect data across all apps and platforms.
Data Encryption is the act of converting data from one form to another or encryption key so that only those who have access to the secret key (also known as the decryption key) or password can readable. The encrypted data is often called the ciphertext, while the unencrypted data is the plaintext. Currently, encryption is one of the most popular and effective data security methods used by organizations and businesses. There are two main types of data encryption – asymmetric encryption, also known as public key encryption and symmetric encryption.
