LEXINGTON, Ky., January 28, 2020 — The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) has again announced its support of Data Privacy Day ‒ an international effort held annually on January 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – by signing up as a Data Privacy Day 2020 Champion. As a Champion, NASCIO recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the esponsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information. NASCIO has long been supportive of data privacy, most recently releasing Perspectives on Privacy: A Survey and Snapshot of the Growing State Chief Privacy Officer Role.
NASCIO joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, government entities, municipalities and individuals to raise awareness at home, at work and school and in their communities. Through collaboration and unified, consistent messaging about privacy and protecting personal information, all Data Privacy Day Champions are working toward the common goal of improving individual and business consciousness toward respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
The official theme for the 2020 Data Privacy Day is “A Vision for the Future.” For more information about Data Privacy Day, which is officially led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), visit staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-day.
