On January 28th America, Canada, and India celebrate Data Privacy Day and Europe celebrates Data Protection Day. Championed by StaySafeOnline in the US, Data Privacy Day is a global effort that allows all of us to come together and encourage businesses who collect data to respect individuals’ privacy. There are still millions of people out there who are not aware of the ways in which their data may be used and/or sold for profit. Data Privacy Day is here to help correct that gap in knowledge!

Data Privacy Day Champions spread data privacy awareness at home, at work, and in their communities. You too can take action by becoming involved on social media, attending an event in your city, and encouraging your friends and family to keep their information safe.
