Happy Data Protection Day

What do you mean you didn't know?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Today is a special day. No, not iPad day - it's the fourth European Data Protection Day.

The European Data Protection Supervisor is trying to show the importance of privacy and data protection.

The right to privacy and protection of personal data are recognised as separate and fundamental rights in the EU Charter, backed by the Lisbon Treaty.

It is hoped the day will raise awareness of such issues, not just among European citizens but also European Union staff.

In the UK the Information Commissioner's Office is supporting the initiative with activities to teach children, and their teachers, about the importance of privacy. It is also running the 'i in online' project to teach teenagers about the risks of over-sharing information on social networking sites.
