Need to Keep Data Safe:

• It is very important to keep your data safe.
• If the data is personal then you may not want it to be leaked into the public such as your family photographs etc.
• If it is some sensitive information like bank details or passwords, then it needs to be kept private from even your family and close friends.
• Data can be compromised via a malicious act such as copying, unauthorized viewing, deleting, etc. or it can be corrupted due to accidental damage such as human error or corruption.
