Here are 6 groups of people and industries that can benefit from using privacy filters to protect their on-screen information.
- Healthcare industry
Patient confidentiality is of prime importance in the healthcare industry, and if not done right, it violates the fundamental rights of the patient. Moreover, it can cost the hospital a lot of money in lawsuits as well. Health care providers in the US have to adhere to HIPPA privacy rules.
- The Government
The government has access to data on their citizens, and exposure to such a data to an ill-intentioned third-party may not be an ideal situation for anyone.
- The Finance Industry
Brokers, accountants, or financial advisors –all of them carry sensitive personal financial records of their clients and they are always on the move. Protecting their computer screens during travel is very important. Many countries around the world have privacy regulations specific to this industry.
- The Corporate Industry
Corporations have a whole set of private information that they cannot risk exposing to not just their competitors but in-house, between employees and different branches of the company as well. Recently Europe enacted the General Data Protection Regulation act (GDPR) to address privacy concerns specific to businesses dealing with EU citizens.
- The Mobile Workers
People are working on the move, and not just in their offices. They use their smartphones, tablets, and laptops to access information and they do so in public; in libraries, bus stops, plane rides and so on. Would you want a competitor stealing your confidential information?
- The Education Industry
Education institutes store student and teacher information in their database, and most of it is private like their contact numbers, addresses and so on. It’s essential to protect it. furthermore, the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) addresses concerns about children’s access to harmful content through the use of “technology protection measures.”
