The aim of this chapter is to take readers beyond the prescriptions of the law to present them with a practical perspective on what happens when organizations try to protect personal data. This is based on the acknowledgement that different sectors of society will have different concerns when it comes to the protection of personal data and privacy. The various conceptions of privacy connect a wide variety of academic disciplines, from anthropology to urban planning. We need to understand that there are many different perspectives on what privacy signifies, and hence, that there are many different considerations regarding what to do to protect it.
