Data Privacy Week


Successfully enforcing data privacy and security is a leading concern for most organizations, especially with the rising number of cyber-attack incidents and their financial impact. The average cost of a data breach tops $4.45 million worldwide, and $9.48 million in the U.S., according to IBM’s 2023 Cost of a Data Breach report.

Originating as Data Privacy Day in 2008, Data Privacy Week is now recognized from January 21 – 27 internationally to boost awareness about the importance of data management and online privacy. The focus of Data Privacy Week is to inform consumers how their personal data is being used and to ensure they can securely manage their own data while organizations pledge to respect and safeguard consumer data.
