Data Privacy Day (DPD) is observed on January 28th. Data Privacy Day is focused on, well data privacy of course. Officially recognized in the United States and Canada since 2008 as Data Privacy Day, today commemorates the first international treaty dealing with data privacy and protection. As we were last year, we are proud to join the National Cyber Security Alliance as a Data Privacy Day Champion and will be participating in the various discussions taking place over the new few weeks.
