The European Data Protection Day, 28/01

The European institutions and bodies and the Member States of the Council of Europe will, on Saturday, 28th January, celebrate the sixth European Data Protection Day.
This date is chosen as a reminder of 28th January 1981, when the Council of Europe adopted Convention 108, the first legally binding international instrument related to data protection.
To mark the day, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) has recorded a video message to focus on privacy and data protection as fundamental rights, and highlight the everyday processing of personal data and the risks. The video, with Mr Peter Hustinx (EDPS Supervisor) and Giovanni Buttarelli (EDPS Assistant Supervisor) is available here .

Moreover, another EU-Agency, theEuroPol Cyber Crime Centre and Data Protection Office have produced a handy leaflet with tips to help you protect your data and prevent identity theft. You can find it here.

ENISA would like to point to some of its recent work related to the area of data protection, privacy and trust;
