Data Privacy Day (DPD) is an international effort centered on "Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust."
Data Privacy Day's goals are to:
Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the January 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Data Privacy Day is now a celebration for everyone, observed annually on Jan. 28.
The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) assumed leadership of Data Privacy Day from the Privacy Projects in August 2011. A nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated cybersecurity education and awareness, NCSA is advised by a distinguished advisory committee of privacy professionals.
