Data Privacy Day, which lands annually on January 28,  is “an international effort to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust“.

January 28 is a good day to recognize how quickly the privacy industry is growing. It’s a day to celebrate you or your staff for helping keeping people’s data safe. It’s a day where you can take the opportunity to educate your staff about why privacy matters, and it’s about connecting with other privacy pros to network, to engage, ask questions, and party like a privacy pro.

Tell us how you’re celebrating Data Privacy Day using #DataPrivacyDay2019 or share photos and topics from your #PrivacyAfterHours2019 events.

Join us in making 2019 a record year for the LEAST number data breaches, security incidents, and other events that negatively impact privacy.
