Data Privacy Day is an international event that occurs on January 28 annually. Started as an initiative to create awareness about data protection and its best practices, this day strives to promote the right to privacy and its importance among individuals.
Significance of Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy day’s efforts were originally focussed on educating and raising awareness among individuals on staying safe online by being cautious while sharing their personal information on the internet.
With the increase in cyber-attacks, privacy laws, and regulations, awareness regarding data protection has expanded tremendously over the years.
Data privacy governs the way data is created, shared and used. But all data is vulnerable to be affected by any means, be it corruption, malware or human error. This has compelled all businesses to adopt and comply with the data privacy rules and also to do their part in educating the consumers.
Businesses / Organization’s role in Data Privacy
The importance of data protection keeps increasing with the amount of data created and stored continuously.
In this security-conscious world, there is continuous pressure on businesses and organizations to make data protection their priority. They are expected to respect the privacy of their customers in order to gain their trust.
In order to achieve these, businesses follow data protection regulations like GDPR, comply with security measures to protect the data transferred and use tools like data protection software to backup and recover important data. This not only benefits the users but also the business by ensuring business continuity.
Apart from implementing data protection and following guidelines themselves, business owners should take it upon themselves to keep their customers educated on why and how their personal data is collected, used and secured. Also, regularly updating them about the changing laws, sharing tips and best practices to protect their data is also necessary.
