January 28th is Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day takes place on January 28th each year.
The origins of Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day has been celebrated in North America since 2008 to commemorate “the Jan. 28th, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection”.
The most important aspect of Data Privacy Day is to raise awareness, promote privacy, and share best practices to secure data. “Data Privacy is an international effort to empower individuals and businesses to respect privacy, safeguard data and enable trust.”
Keeping Data Secure and Private at Work – Cybersecurity Training
Data privacy is crucial for organizations. Protecting the privacy of the personal information of employees, customers, vendors, and prospects not only builds trust but is also a significant factor in mitigating risks of incidents that damage an organization’s reputation and lead to costly penalties.
One of the most important aspects of data privacy awareness is training. Employees with personal information must understand the risks of mishandling in an organization and those whose personal information is collected or used. Failing to comply with data privacy laws is costly and destroys people’s trust in your organization.
