Data Privacy Week, January 22-28, is an international campaign created to raise awareness about the data threats that lurk in the shadows of the internet. The week is designed as a time for organizations to evaluate where they and their staff stand on the latest privacy laws and if they’re prepared in the event of a data breach.
As a tech company, staying on top of data privacy laws and practices is a core value that we take seriously. And as a tech company that’s here to help your firm do the same, we’ve compiled a list of our top data privacy courses that you can add to your program to celebrate the week accordingly. *
