SDCERS Becomes a Data Privacy Day Champion

Date: Jan 28, 2020


January 28th is "Data Privacy Day," the annual international effort by hundreds of organizations and individuals who collaborate to generate awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust. SDCERS has announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day by signing up as a Data Privacy Day 2020 Champion.  As a Champion, SDCERS recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater campaign that promotes awareness of the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information, and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. This year, we are encouraging everyone to “Own Your Privacy” by learning more about how to help protect the valuable data that is online. One simple thing you can do is to update your privacy settings on your electronic devices.

SDCERS 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.
SDCERS is dedicated to safeguarding your personal information.  We also understand the importance of being transparent and are committed to letting you know how we use, collect, and store personal information.  Learn more about SDCERS’ Privacy Policy at

About Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe.  Data Protection Day commemorates the Jan. 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection.   NCSA, a non-profit public-private partnership promotes cybersecurity and privacy education and awareness, leads the effort in North America.  For more information, visit
