More than 40 countries around the world will be celebrating Data Privacy Day this week. It’s a day designed to “promote awareness about the many ways personal information is collected, stored, used, and shared, and education about privacy practices that will enable individuals to protect their personal information.”
Instead of being just another designated ‘day’ or ‘month’ that you hear about in passing, take a few moments to consider what privacy in the digital world is like, what you want it to be like, and where privacy is headed. I put together some materials on behalf of IKeepSafe to help you take stock and consider what you want to see in the future.
