Data Privacy Day

Date: 27/01/2023

On January 28 will be celebrated the annual Data Privacy Day, the date on which the Council of Europe’s data protection convention, known as “Convention 108”, was opened for signature, to generate awareness about the importance of data privacy and highlight ways to safeguard personal information.

People´s personal data are being processed every second – at work, in their relations with public authorities, in the health field, when they buy goods or services, travel, or surf the internet. Individuals are generally unfamiliar with the risks related to the protection of their personal data and of their rights in this respect. They are seldom aware of what they can do if they consider that their rights have been breached, or of the role of national data protection agencies.

Therefore we must learn more about our rights and we can find more information at the Council of Europe.

Additionally, we would like to express that LASIGE ethically and respectfully work its data sources.
