The Privacy Advisor | Privacy After Hours Celebrates Data Privacy Day 2016 Related reading: Data privacy requests metrics: Lessons for your privacy program





Some celebrate Data Privacy Day by changing their passwords. Others lament the fact that their information has become so topical that keeping it safe has gotten itself its own holiday. Privacy pros? They mingle, celebrating the field at this January’s Privacy After Hours.

Below is a recap of some of the evening’s festivities across the globe. Try not to be too envious of the privacy-anchored bashes taking place everywhere from Hong Kong to Boston, Ottawa to Germany, for the Heidelberg's first ever Privacy After Hours event.
