Data Privacy Day

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. PACC has been proud to be a Data Privacy Day Champion for several years.

Held annually on January 28th, Data Privacy Day aims to increase awareness of privacy and data protection issues among consumers, organizations, and government officials. DPD helps industry, academia, and advocates to highlight consumer privacy efforts.

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 Jan. 28. Read More
