Privacy filters are an important part of an organisation’s physical security policy, particularly in regard to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A privacy filter as a visual protection measure is an indispensable security tool to protect confidential data belonging to the company or personal data that’s being viewed by an employee.
