Data Privacy Day is an international effort held annually on Jan. 28 to create awareness about the importance of privacy and protecting personal information. As a Data Privacy Day Champion, Quanterion recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.

Millions of people are unaware of and uninformed about how their personal information is being used, collected, or shared in our digital society. Data Privacy Day aims to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and companies to take action.

In 2021, NCSA is encouraging individuals to Own Your Privacy by learning more about how to protect valuable data online, and encouraging businesses to Respect Privacy which advocates for holding organizations responsible for keeping individuals’ personal information safe from unauthorized access and ensuring fair, relevant, and legitimate data collection and processing.
