Data Privacy Day (DPD) is an international effort to empower people to protect their privacy, control their digital footprint, and recognize that data protection and privacy are everyone’s responsibility.
Data Privacy Day highlights the impact technology is having on our privacy rights and underscores the importance of valuing and protecting personal information.
Data Privacy Day promotes privacy education and awareness to further the understanding that protecting privacy is our shared responsibility.
Held annually on January 28th, Data Privacy Day DPD brings together individuals, government representatives, corporations, non-profits, academics, educators and students to increase awareness of privacy and data protection issues among consumers, organizations, and government officials and across sectors.
Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the January 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Data Privacy Day is now a celebration for everyone, observed annually on January 28.
