January 28 is Data Privacy Day.
Privacy is becoming more challenging with new tech such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing, blockchain, autonomous cars, the internet of things, drones, and government agencies recording massive amounts of data in the name of security. Basic privacy concepts such as consent as we now know it may no longer be adequate to deal with some of these challenges. And the sheer number of ways our information gets used makes it almost impossible to truly understand, let alone trust, what others are doing with our information.
The IAPP is hosting Privacy After Hours events in a number of cites around the world on Thursday Jan 25 to recognize Data Privacy Day.
