MS-ISAC National Webcast Initiative
January 28th is National Data Privacy Day. Data Privacy Month began in the United States as National Data Privacy Day. Legislation in 2009 declared every Jan. 28th as the day for national data privacy awareness.
Some institutions and organizations expanded National Data Privacy Day to be celebrated throughout January. Similar to Cyber Security Awareness Month, Data Privacy Month is an annual effort to empower people to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint, as well as escalate the protection of privacy and data as everyone's priority but on a much broader scale.
Spend the month helping to raise awareness on your campus about privacy issues, ranging from information security and protecting personally identifiable information to how interacting with social media impacts privacy.
Be sure to check out a few of the procedures that the DCCCD Information Privacy and Security Program has in place to help ensure the security of both student and employee data. In this day and age, we can never be absolutely protected against all circumstances, but we can continue to make our staff and students aware of such efforts throughout the year. We will continue to improve our program, and rely on our staff, students, and community partners to help us practice and respond using district procedures.
