Data Privacy Day – January 28
We’re committed – are you?
Data Privacy Day is on 28 January each year, where it initially commemorated the first binding treaty on privacy and data protection.
It’s now an international event that aims to raise awareness about data privacy and provide a platform where current privacy issues can be discussed.
Led by the National Cyber Security Alliance with their StaySafeOnline initiative, provides many educational resources and holds discussions throughout the year, and is focusing on the online activities of elderly, young, and teenage users this year.
“All tech users – especially vulnerable audiences like teens and seniors – need to take responsibility and protect themselves against cyber threats, scams and identity theft – not only during prime shopping time, but every day.”
MICHAEL KAISER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NCSA
