Every day brings news of breaches and compromises of personal data – and millions of people are often unaware of how their personal data is being used, collected, or shared, and ignore the magnitude or severity of their exposure. January 28 is Data Privacy Day, an international effort to remind consumers to make active decisions about what they are sharing, and to choose how, when, where, and for what purposes their data is being used.
It’s a basic societal tenet that most of us learned from our parents at a very young age. When applied to thoughts, personal space or belongings, privacy is what gives us control over if, when, how and to whom we share the things we hold dear.
