The Right to Privacy in the Age of Digitalization

Abstract

The article analyzes ensuring the right to privacy on the example of modern information technologies such as: Internet, Social Network, Big Data and Internet of Things. We believe that in the epoch of the steep development of information technologies, traditional legal methods and instruments are not enough for solving the privacy problems. Thus, access to databases of personal data of individuals increases the risk of intrusion into the privacy sphere and violation of the right to inviolability. IT greatly exacerbated legal problems related to the dilemma of disclosure of information or to protect privacy and the lack of traditional legal means to ensure privacy. Thus, in the era of IT, automated processing of personal data is the main source of threats to the inviolability of the privacy sphere. However, the new technologies shall not be rejected; it is only important to solve the issue of regulation, accumulation, storage, application and protection of the information on the person. This will allow realizing the potential and advantages of the information technologies for the consumers and at the same time minimizing the risks of losing the security and confidentiality.


Keywords: privacy; right to privacy; personal data; information technologies; Internet; Social networks; Big Data and Internet of Things.
