Data Privacy Week – January 22 to 28, 2023

logo for data privacy weekHWDSB is proud to once again recognize Data Privacy Week, which begins January 22, 2023. The annual event coincides with Data Privacy Day, which concludes the week on January 28.

Many countries around the world, including Canada, celebrate Data Privacy Week during the last week of January each year. Data Privacy Day commemorates the signing of Convention 108 in 1981, the first legally binding international treaty on privacy and data protection.

During Data Privacy Week, we promote awareness of the impact that technology has on our privacy rights and the importance of protecting these rights and our personal information.

In recognition of Data Privacy Week, we have pulled together a number of resources that we encourage you to use and share. By sharing these resources we can better protect our online privacy, strengthen our data security, and promote cyber safety awareness.

Please see below for some useful data privacy resources for both students and families from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC)Get Cyber Safe campaign, National Cyber Security Alliance, and more.
