On January 28th, the world celebrates Data Privacy Day (known in Europe as Data Protection Day), a national day first initiated in 2007 by the Council of Europe to raise awareness among all users about the importance of protecting the privacy of their personal data information online and spreading cybersecurity best practices.
Advances in digitalization have led to increasingly frequent, costly, and damaging cyber incidents especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has expedited the use of digital tools in business and the home. Securing the privacy, availability, and integrity of data has become a major stake for any individual or organization. A successful data protection strategy can help prevent data loss, theft, or corruption and can help minimize damage caused in the event of a breach or disaster.
