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.
Clarivate is proud to be signed up as a Data Privacy Day Champion with the National Cyber Security Alliance! Please join us in celebrating and share what what privacy means to you or how you stay #PrivacyAware.

Mitigating the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 with MEP design
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our High Performance Buildings Group has conducted research into the role that mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design can play in mitigating the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 in the built environment.
In a typical, normal day, how many times a day do you think about touching your face? Or perhaps your phone? Most likely, very little if not at all; however, what we’ve witnessed during the global pandemic of COVID-19, is a heightened sense of touch awareness, or being cognizant of surfaces we touch.
