Data Privacy Day

Hey everyone, it’s Data Privacy Day

Data Privacy Day (DPD) is an annual international campaign held every January 28th to create awareness about privacy and protecting personal information online.

DPD, as we know it now, started in the United States and Canada in January 2008 later being signed into law in 2014 (S.Res.337). Canada and the U.S. adopted the campaign from Europe’s Data Protection Day celebration that began after the signing of Convention 108 in 1981. (Of course, as I was gently reminded by my coworkers, every day is Data Privacy Day here at SSL.com.)

Here are a few tips from StaySafeOnline.org and DPD to help you stay safe.

As an addition this year, the The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), StaySafeOnline.org, and Data Privacy Day 2016 have included resources to assist victims of Domestic Violence. On this page, there are resources to assist individuals that have been or may still be at risk and would like to regain their personal information and an online presence.

SSL.com would like to wish everyone a safe and private 2016. Any questions or ways we can help you please contact us SSL.com.
