Information from Data Privacy Day – Stay Safe Online
Millions of people are unaware of and uninformed about how their personal information is being used, collected, or shared in our digital society.
Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the January 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. On January 27, 2014, the 113th U.S. Congress adopted S. Res. 337, a non-binding resolution expressing support for the designation of January 28 as “National Data Privacy Day.” Data Privacy Day is observed to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and companies to take action.
