Backup is not what I think of when I hear Data Protection

I'm not sure whether Canada uses different terminology, but to me, Data Protection means making sure that data is not revealed where it is not meant, and that the data retained is appropriate to the reasons for which it is being kept, and correct.

This is the opening paragraph of Wikipedia on "Information Management".

Information privacy, or data privacy (or data protection), is the relationship between collection and dissemination of data, technology, the public expectation of privacy, and the legal and political issues surrounding them.

And UK and EU legislation for "Data Protection" is all about this.

Still, this isn't a UK centric news site, is it.
