Encapsulation

Encapsulation refers to how data is stored and accessed within an object or class in programming languages. It helps protect sensitive information from being leaked outside of its intended scope (private) while also enabling access for other objects that need the data (public).

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Encapsulation

Encapsulation helps reduce errors and increase efficiency for SMBs. It leaves fewer chances for mistakes or accidental data misuse that could lead to security breaches if left unchecked. Encapsulation also helps make programming languages more manageable by grouping related functions instead of scattering them throughout different files. Additionally, it assists with code reuse, helping SMBs save time and money when building new applications.
