Celebrate Data Privacy Day with Privacy Pros Near and Far

Data Privacy Day, which lands annually on January 28, is “an international effort to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust”.

Each year, the IAPP partners with Stay Safe Online to promote Data Privacy Day, and this year the celebrations are bigger than ever. Typically celebrated for one day only, the IAPP and KnowledgeNet are extending festivities throughout the entire month of January.

Across the globe, KnowledgeNet Chapters will host their first gatherings of the year with the opportunity for you to network, share professional experiences and have some fun - because privacy is worth celebrating.

Be sure to check back throughout the month of January as new events will be added all the time. Have questions about Data Privacy Day 2020 events? Reach out to knowledgenet@iapp.org
