Data Privacy Day 2018

The Data Privacy Day aims at raising awareness and promoting privacy and data protection best practices at European and international level. Millions of people are unaware of and uninformed about how their personal information is being used, collected or shared in our digital society. Data Privacy Day aims to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and institutions to take action . It is currently observed in European countries members of European Union and European Economic Area as well as in the US, Canada and India.
