Privacy Technologies - what they mean and why important

Privacy Technologies in Recruiting - why is it important?

Privacy technologies are frequently confused with other technologies like cybersecurity, privacy by design (for GDPR), anonymity.

Privacy technologies are playing a crucial role in the recruiting process.

With increasing concerns over data privacy, these technologies enable organizations to protect sensitive candidate information while ensuring compliance with privacy regulations.

By implementing secure data management systems, anonymized screening approaches, and robust encryption methods, companies can safeguard personal data and build trust with job applicants. These technologies promote transparency, accountability, and respect for individuals' privacy rights, enhancing the overall recruiting experience for both employers and candidates.

Privacy Tech is a great variety of personal information management options. For example, anonymity technologies mask the user while browsing or using internet services, but privacy technologies actually involve both — anonymity and intentionally disclosure of some information or identifying to a trusted source, and so on.

The exponential growth that can now be observed in the Privacy Tech market will continue, because, most likely, the story of ensuring the privacy of our data is just beginning. And even such well-thought-out laws as the GDPR, although they try to regulate the circulation of data, but operate in a separate territory, and therefore cannot resist cross-border surveillance or data theft, which means that more and more technological projects will come into play that solve problems technically .

The demand for privacy products is growing. People’s concern about the security of their personal data and privacy leads to the fact that they are looking for new technical solutions. Users leave WhatsApp and go to Signal to secure their communications, install Brave and DuckDuckGo browsers to surf the web privately, set up their own personal VPN like Amnezia or Outline, use password generation and secure authentication apps, and learn from various digital literacy services.

Privacy is becoming a hot topic, even at the highest level, as well as a motivation for making decisions concerning large groups of people and entire states. Not only cypher punks, but also leading public figures, journalists, politicians, top stars of the IT industry are already talking about various threats in the field of privacy. Sometimes just two words on Twitter trigger an explosion in the popularity of certain products and a frenzied increase in investment in them. After Elon Musk’s post with a recommendation to use the secure messenger Signal, Signal Advance shares rose in price by 1100% — it turned out to be the wrong Signal, but the trend is impressive.

When personal data becomes publicly available, and the problem with the privacy of users on the Internet becomes extremely relevant. A request for confidentiality, protection, reliable control of personal information is being formed. This opens up prospects for new technical solutions that are designed to restore and protect privacy, and the opportunity for the development of new markets.
