2020 has radically changed our lives. With the exponential increase in remote work and ecommerce, companies were urged to develop a safe and secure online environment.

Although security has become a hot topic in the market, less than ⅓ of Brazilian firms have dedicated cybersecurity teams

Here at VTEX, we are committed to changing this scenario. We developed a fully dedicated team to ensure we provide to everyone who is or will be part of our community peace of mind, well being, safety and trust when it comes to Privacy & Security.

When deep-diving in this topic, it is relevant to highlight the definition of data.

After all, what is data?

Data consists of sets of bits, numbers, characters, or any information that is collected for a specific purpose. It includes a wide range of types, such as observational data, textual analysis, and more.

Data can be classified in different ways, but two of them are particularly relevant to us:

  • Personal Data: according to the GDPR, it is “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.” Examples of Personal Data include IP addresses, browser history, or transaction history.
  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII): it consists of any kind of information that might be used to distinguish a person’s identity. Examples of PII include name, date of birth, biometric records, or telephone number.
