Security is the process of preventing any intentional or accidental loss of data and any malicious entry of intruders. Authorization is the granting of access or privileges to a user after identifying or getting the user authenticated. Yes, it is a type of security mechanism. In layman terms, it is called as user access control. It basically controls what data the user can access and modify.
