Sensitive information is information meant to be protected against unwarranted disclosure. It is vital this information be kept secure, since a number of laws and compliance standards mandate such protection. These laws were enacted to protect personal privacy and proprietary information.
Sensitive Information includes all data, in any form, which contains:
- Customer record information
- Card holder data
- Confidential personal data
