Data Privacy Day was January 28! The international effort focuses on ways that individuals can secure their personal information. It also brings awareness to ways businesses and organizations can respect the privacy of their communities and be more transparent about how they collect, store, and use data – in turn, enabling trust. This year, Data Privacy Day 2021, spotlighted the value of information, how to “Own Your Privacy”, and “Respect Privacy.”
