Fast-changing data privacy laws and regulations govern how companies must obtain and protect personally identifiable or other sensitive information. The challenge is to establish and maintain compliance to avoid exorbitant expense and penalties in addressing such issues upon notice of noncompliance.
January 28th is recognized as International Data Privacy Day in the United States and over 47 other countries. The purpose is to raise privacy law awareness, and promote privacy and data protection best practices.
