January 28th Data Protection Day

January 28th Data Protection Day

This day was created by the Council of Europe in 2006 and called “Convention 108” in an attempt to make sure that all the data gathered on people was kept private and out of the hands of those who might abuse it. What a great idea! Didn’t seem to actually take but at least they tried. The rest of the world call it “Privacy Day” but it hasn’t really worked any better outside of Europe either. It is amazing what data is collected and sold about you, maybe they know you better than you know yourself!

How to celebrate – Appreciate the effort to protect you! Make sure you protect yourself, don’t just leave it up to governments. Study the corruption in all of government
