Data Privacy Month

What is It?

This annual effort empowers people to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint. It aims to escalate the protection of privacy and data as everyone's priority. Sponsored by various companies, universities and educational organizations, the program culminates in Data Privacy Day every year on January 28th. EDUCAUSE invites us to celebrate data privacy for an entire month: starting on January 28 and ending February 28.
