On the 28th of January, we celebrated European Data Protection Day, a day that marks the importance of data privacy and security in our increasingly digital society. This day reminds us of the critical role that data protection plays in safeguarding our personal information and preserving our freedoms in the digital world.
The Roots of Data Protection Day
European Data Protection Day commemorates the signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection, by the Council of Europe on January 28, 1981. This day is a call to action for individuals, companies, and governments to enhance privacy and data protection measures.
The Digital Landscape and Privacy Challenges
In today’s interconnected environment, where data is often described as the new oil, protecting this valuable resource is more crucial than ever. With the advent of social media, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT), the volume of personal data that is being collected, processed, and stored has skyrocketed, presenting both opportunities and challenges.
Deferendum: A Beacon of Trust and Security
