145 minutes. That’s the average amount of time a person spends on social media alone in a single day. With this type of exposure to the online world, it’s easy for us to let our guard down when it comes to protecting our personal data. Data Privacy Day serves as a reminder to make safeguarding our personal information a priority. It reminds us to treat our personal information like money. It has value and we need to protect it as if our lives depended on it, because sometimes, they do.
