Privacy AwARe Week

Data Privacy Day is observed annually the anniversary of the January 28, 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection.

Data Privacy Day aims to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and companies to respect privacy, safeguard data and enable trust.
