1. A server comprising:
a communicator;
a memory storing instructions, information on a data sharing agreement among a plurality of groups and metadata of information of users included in the plurality of groups; and
a processor configured to execute the stored instructions to:
in response to receiving, from an external device through the communicator, a request signal requesting a first type of data from a second group among the plurality of groups, identify a group ID corresponding to the external device based on an external device ID included in the request signal,
in response to the group ID being identified as corresponding to a first group among the plurality of groups, identify whether the data sharing agreement indicates that sharing the first type of data between the first group and the second group is authorized based on the information on the data sharing agreement,
based on identifying that sharing the first type of data between the first group and the second group is authorized, identify whether a user of the second group authorizes sharing of the first type of data based on metadata of information on the user of the second group among the metadata of the information of the users included in the plurality of groups, and
based on identifying that the user of the second group authorizes sharing of the first type of data, control the communicator to transmit information on an authority for the external device to access the first type of data.
