Data Privacy Day
28 January 2020 All day
Data Privacy Day began in Europe and is also celebrated in the USA. It marks the anniversary of the signing in 1981 of the Council of Europe’s Convention for the Protection of Individuals with Regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data. Some ways of celebrating could include:
• Holding or attending an event or seminar about issues of online security, privacy, and data protection.
• Conducting a data protection workshop for your parish, school or workplace.
• Shredding important paperwork containing personal information that you no longer need.
• Educating young people to be careful about giving out their personal information.
