I hope that you have it circled or appearing in red on your calendar.
From the Wikipedia:
The purpose of Data Privacy Day is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practicesWikipedia contributors, “Data Privacy Day,” Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Data_Privacy_Day&oldid=993515499 (accessed January 27, 2021).
It’s something that should be part of everyone’s daily routine.
Never have we been so aware of the need for privacy and security. We also have better tools than ever to help the cause.
If you do a simple search for “Data Privacy Day”, you’ll find that there are all kinds of resources. It could be more daunting than actually the problem at times, it seems.
I poked around and found three really good resources and have highlighted a sub-link at each site to help the cause.
- National Cybersecurity Alliance
- Manage Your Privacy Settings (links to just about everything you should check)
- International Data Privacy Day 2021
- Privacy Tips Infographic (helpful graphic with tips – additional links for suggestions for students, Incognito Mode, and more)
- Data Privacy Day – Free Downloads & Resources
- Resources for Teachers – link to resources from the Canadian Office of the Privacy Commissioner
Be safe out there.
