Process : Process is a part of a program wherein a program is divided into number of jobs , each job is called as Process (TASK)
Threads : processes are  further divided,  Processes are composed of many actions which need to be carried out,  for this purpose threads are created by the process.
Threads can use the same set of resources as allotted to each process.
The Process have a higher version of encapsulation whereas Threads lack the encapsulation and so forth the data or address contained in a thread is vulnerable and can be used by other threads as well.
A process can create a single thread or multiple threads depending upon the application
