Data Privacy Day is part of a greater campaign that promotes the importance of privacy, highlights how to protect personal information, and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. This year, we encourage 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 by using a helpful tool created by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).

"As technologies advance in our fast-paced world, even the most basic activity collects our information. Many are not aware of how their personal data is being used or managed. HALOCK is dedicated to informing and helping the public through security awareness resources such as cyber tip posters and promote best practices to keep their data safe. HALOCK recognizes how essential privacy is, and we proudly support Data Privacy Day to help educate and drive awareness on safeguarding personal information." – Cindy Kaplan, Director at HALOCK.
