Data Protection Day History
Data Protection Day raises awareness for data protection and seeks to promote good data privacy practices. Everything that we do online leaves digital footprints. These scraps of data might seem unimportant but they add up to make a picture of you. In 1981, the Council of Europe signed the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, known as Convention 108. The bill was signed because computers and automatic processing were becoming more and more widespread. Convention 108 outlawed processing sensitive data based on a person’s race, politics, religion, or sexual life in the absence of proper legal safeguards.
