Learn about Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in 2008 as an extension of Data Protection Day in Europe commemorating the first legally binding international treaty on privacy and data protection in 1981.
Data Privacy Day is spearheaded by the National Cyber Security Alliance, a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet. You can follow its campaign on Twitter or Facebook and use the official hashtag #PrivacyAware to join the conversation.
