We live our lives increasingly online, making what we share with others in the digital world ever more significant. To raise awareness of this, the internationally recognized Data Privacy Day is held annually on Jan. 28 to create awareness about the importance of privacy and protecting personal information.
The day commemorates the 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty addressing data protection, and highlights an issue that is of utmost importance to all of us in our daily lives.
At Workday we have joined other businesses and organizations in becoming a Data Privacy Day Champion, because the day’s themes of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust reflect our own priorities of protecting our customers’ data and our own employee data. While we are proud to be a Data Privacy Day Champion, we also know that privacy and data protection require year-round vigilance, and we remain strongly committed to protecting the personal data of our customers and employees.
Here’s how we embrace these principles in our daily actions.
