Data Privacy Week commemorates the January 28, 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Since 2009, resolutions passed by Congress have supported the designation of January 28th as National Data Privacy Day in the United States. This year, the Data Privacy Day campaign has been expanded into Data Privacy Week, a full week-long initiative.
Data Privacy Week is a global effort meant to raise awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust. Learn more at staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-week.
The themes for Data Privacy Week 2022 are "Respect Privacy" for organizations and "Keep It Private" for individuals.
