Information technology has seen many companies migrating their businesses online, changing the ways that advertising, public relations, customer relations and human resources operations. In a bid to reach as many prospective customers as possible, as well as make as many sales conversions, websites have had to rely on gathering information of visitors on their websites, their online habits, and other such information, creating an era of privacy issues that have become a global concern. Data protection services were thereafter designed and enforced to regulate how data is collected by third parties, reducing the level of invasion of privacy on websites. With regulations such as General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), European Data Protection Board (EDPB) and several others in place, it became a sanctionable offence for any website to gather personal information outrightly or covertly without the agreement of the data-owner. This returned some level of control to the public, serving as a check and balance for the online community and its ever-evolving terrain. As technologies evolve, data protection regulations are upgraded and updated to meet prevailing realities. On the other hand, the digitalization of businesses created a new range of challenges in terms of competition and preserving information, creating the need for cybersecurity for the protection of both the visitors and the website owners. As a larger percentage of human life and activities become more reliant on computers, the internet and information technology, cybersecurity has emerged as a leading concern for individuals, organizations and governments in the contemporary world. IT Governance is a company that claims to offer a full bouquet of services to provide end-to-end safeguard measures for organizations of different sizes.
