Join us in celebrating Data Privacy Day

Data Privacy Day is January 28. It is “an international effort to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust.” But one day does not feel like enough for such an important event.

Once again, the IAPP is partnering with Stay Safe Online to promote Data Privacy Day, and just like last year, we are celebrating for the entire month of January!

All over the world, KnowledgeNet chapters will host their first gatherings of the year, making it easy for you to network, share professional experiences and have some fun to start the year, because privacy is worth celebrating.

Find a Data Privacy Day celebration near you.

Be sure to check back throughout the month of January as new events will be added on a regular basis. Have questions about Data Privacy Day 2023 events? Reach out to
