This is part of a running series on #DataPrivacyDay.
"Data privacy" is a fundamental concept familiar to novice and experienced security professionals alike. However, while the concept may initially appear self-explanatory, apps, services, and businesses are attempting to collect and use your personal information more than ever before. The stakes of failing to protect your own data or that of your customers are significant; with the potential of causing irreversible damage to your personal well-being, corporate brand, or reputation. A high price to pay for an avoidable lapse in following best practices in data privacy.
What may seem a modest endeavor on the surface, the global scale of this event helps raise awareness to the importance of both personal and corporate responsibility for data privacy. Whether concerned about your own data or that of your customers, stay vigilant by regularly reviewing the practical guidance set forth by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and spending a portion of your day listening to data privacy luminaries during the 2021 Data Privacy Day event on January 28th.”
