Everyone who submits information to online organizations wants to know how secure information submitted to them is. It is of utmost importance that companies requesting for data from visitors to their portals explain in details to the public what they intend to do with such. When you carefully look at how details submitted to online platforms find their way into the hands of dubious people, then you will understand the importance of security.
The question to those in charge of information privacy is, how did those thieves get hold of private materials submitted to online organizations? It is not difficult to understand, such facts must have been bought from rogue platforms. Some companies intentionally set out to harvest data fraudulently from members of the public without disclosing such materials will be sold. People complained when they saw their private information on places never visited before. This simply means that organizations got the details from dubious companies who harvested them previously.
In most cases people who were defrauded this way have no power to sue the offenders to seek redress in courts. Cost of getting justice is usually very high making it difficult to get at the offenders. Laws put in place by relevant authorities are weak and rarely implemented. The injured hardly gets justice due to prohibited cost of legal processes in many countries. Weak systems governing data privacy laws make it almost impossible for people to trust them. However, greater privacy can still be achieved if more effort is made by relevant authorities.
