Data Privacy Day, an international “holiday” that occurs each year on January 28, was created to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) assumed leadership of Data Privacy Day from the Privacy Projects back in August of 2011. A nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet, NCSA is advised by a distinguished advisory committee of privacy professionals.

“A major part of data privacy is safeguarding the data. And when it comes to safeguarding data, we feel organizations should operate from a very simple paradigm: identify all the threats and then mitigate them.
Safeguarding data means different things to different organizations. But for those involved in developing software systems, we feel strongly that the best way to identify all the threats and mitigate them is by incorporating threat modeling right into their development lifecycle. It’s the most effective way to identify threats prior to deployment, which is obviously preferable.”
