Celebrate Data Privacy Day 2014 on January 28

January 28 promises to be the most widely recognized Data Privacy Day since its first observation in 2008.

This, of course, is one effect of the many stories over the past year that has put data privacy in headlines across the world. These stories have reinvigorated old debates, and prompted new questions, about the increasingly complex relationship between individuals, online data they create or is about them, and how data is protected and shared.

Ten Years, Five Weeks, One Theme: Cybersecurity is Our Shared Responsibility

First launched in 2004 as a broad effort by government and industry to help all Americans stay safe and secure online, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) commemorates its 10th anniversary this October.

NCSAM has grown significantly under leadership from the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), reaching consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions, and young people across the nation. Today, NCSA and DHS also co-lead STOP. THINK. CONNECT., the national cybersecurity education and awareness campaign.
