January 28 Is Data Privacy Day

This Sunday (Jan. 28) is Data Privacy Day, which marks the 1981 signing of Europe’s Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. But, more important, it’s a reminder of the importance of protecting your personal data.

That’s becoming an increasingly bigger deal as the number and size of computer hacks continue to grow. In just the past year, millions of consumers have been affected by breaches at companies from Equifax to Uber, along with phishing and malware attacks on individuals.
