Privacy and Data Security - TLS 1.3 vs. TLS 1.2

Data security is an important aspect of running a business successfully as it gives customers the assurance that their data is being collected, processed, and transferred securely. There are many privacy laws around the world that set forth requirements if an app or website collects or uses personal data. The United States is one of the few countries without a policy at the national or federal level mandating a privacy policy. However, the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) states “if your app or website collects personally identifiable data from residents of the state of California, you must have a Privacy Policy.” Given that it is most likely that your website/app could be used by a resident of California regardless of where you are in the world, CalOPPA ends up having a wide reach.
