Also known as Data Protection Day in Europe, the day celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the Council of Europe's Convention for the Protection of Individuals with Regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data in 1981.

The holiday was first celebrated in 2007 and promotes the need for data privacy. It also helps raise awareness about how people can protect their data and their privacy, online and offline.

How to Celebrate?

  • On this day, companies and governments hold events and seminars that talk about issues of online security, privacy, and data protection. Attend one of these events.
  • If you work for a company that works with data, why not suggest holding a data protection workshop?
  • Shred important paperwork containing personal information that you no longer need.
  • Educate the children and teenagers in your life to be careful about giving out their personal information to strangers.
