Everyday Information Security

Data Privacy Day: Missed

'Data Privacy Day (known in Europe as Data Protection Day)  is an international holiday that occurs every 28 January.' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Privacy_Day ]
 
Have you heard about it? Was it celebrated at your company?

Of course not. Data Privacy Day is one of the few international holidays in the topic of information security.  Even then, information security professionals hardly know about it. Those who accidentally do, do not advertise it at all.

We must take such opportunities to spread information security and privacy awareness among people. The society of the future will definitely need deeper understanding why (private) information needs protection.

The occasion for this year was sadly missed. We can retry next year!

Found some news articles in the topic:https://www.google.hu/search?client=opera&q=data+privacy+day&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8#q=data+privacy+day&tbm=nws, but not too much from the biggest news providers.

What you, Veroniki had there at your company is at least something, opposed to the nothing of lots of other companies. (:

I think, by the way, one way to grab attention for information security/data privacy is to make it usable in everyday life. And this applies for privacy very well as it is attempted to be violated every minute on the internet.

RE: Data Privacy Day: Missed

My team started a Privacy day event back in 2013. We did a series on the history of privacy in year 1, a focus on 'your' privacy including IoT and explaining how to read a Privacy statement,to this year having a panelist discussions with our CPO and Winston Strawn (Liisa Thomas) who once spoke about breaches in Chicago at our Hoilday party. ON how to attact people we put it on our US intranet site and we worked with training to ensure they could count this to any CPEs. At a high, we pushed 300 attendees. This year was over 200.

I use the IAPP website for ideas. It always has some good content to use, as well. A solid resource for privacy professionals.

RE: Data Privacy Day: Missed

We actually did, on our Intranet social portal for employees. It was quite a trending article, given all the latest developments in US around privacy due to the new Executive Order.

In general though we have a data protection blog section where we try to engage employees and publish privacy news. It's not easy, as they not always find it relevant or amusing but I see the same issues with Information Security guidelines and policies. 

Unless you do something like a big campaign, usually id difficult to attract them.
