Friday January 28 is Data Privacy Day. Its purpose is to promote data privacy education.
From the website,
"Data Privacy Day is an international celebration of the dignity of the individual expressed through personal information. In this networked world, in which we are thoroughly digitized, with our identities, locations, actions, purchases, associations, movements, and histories stored as so many bits and bytes, we have to ask – who is collecting all of this – what are they doing with it – with whom are they sharing it? "
The site is sponsored by Intel, Microsoft, Visa and Google-your "Data Privacy Day Partners."
