Data Privacy Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on January 28
In our digital and cyberspace world, data privacy is becoming an increasingly important issue. Every day, seems to bring another incident of a breach in data security, resulting in the theft of personal data affecting millions of us.
Hacking and breaking into corporate and government databases is being accomplished by young kids, cyber crooks, and foreign governments. our privacy is also affected by companies that sell our personal contact information. That's one way we get on those snail mail and email mailing lists, resulting in countless amounts of junk mail.
Today is a day for individuals and businesses large and small to make positive and effective efforts, to protect the privacy of their customers and their private personal data. It's the perfect day for companies to hold forums and meetings to identify and eliminate weaknesses in their security systems.
It is also a day for you to get proactive in pushing both business and government, to do more to protect private personal data and records.
Data Privacy Day is an international effort. Many corporations are international. And, many hackers are lurking on the internet from outside the U.S.
History and Origin of Data Security Day:
The National CyberSecurity Alliance sponsors this day. However, we are not sure if they created it. This holiday began in 2008.
The date was chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first international treaty dealing with data privacy and data protection.
