In 2020, the United States had more than 313 million active internet users nationwide, making it the country with the third most active internet users in the world. Although the internet has provided millions of people with the convenience to connect, share, communicate, learn, etc., many are unaware or even uniformed about how their personal information is being handled on the web.

Because of this gap, January 28 has come to be known as Data Privacy Day. This day aims to bring awareness to the general importance of privacy and serve as a reminder to organizations that privacy is an essential element for conducting business. As important as data privacy is, we thought we would honor the day by sharing some of our top privacy awareness and data protection courses.
