Jan 28th Data Privacy Day

StopWe all know how important data privacy is and more so as we are now using computing and the internet more and more to do banking, social networking, shopping e.t.c

 

Jan 28th is Data Privacy Day

“Data Privacy Day is an international celebration of the dignity of the individual expressed through personal information.  In this networked world, in which we are thoroughly digitized, with our identities, locations, actions, purchases, associations, movements, and histories stored as so many bits and bytes, we have to ask – who is collecting all of this – what are they doing with it  – with whom are they sharing it?  Most of all, individuals are asking ‘How can I protect my information from being misused?’  These are reasonable questions to ask – we should all want to know the answers.”

Some good links to other sites and guides on the above site, the Cisco one HERE is a good basic one to help novice and new users to the internet and I know many PC savvy users help teach users in the basics to get them active on the internet, so this is a good guide to hand out letting them know some of the jargon and what it means. 

A lot of other good links and downloadable guides also.
