Cybersecurity Experts Share Insight For Data Privacy Day 2019

You’ll have to forgive my ignorance—but what is an appropriate gift for Data Privacy Day? Perhaps an encrypted portable drive? That might not be a bad idea, but what I have for you instead is the collected wisdom of a number of cybersecurity professionals—people who make a living safeguarding data and protecting privacy.

The issue of data privacy and data security seems more relevant now than ever. People are essentially numb at this point to the constant barrage of data breach notifications and revelations of how nefarious attackers have compromised or exposed their data—but now we are also seeing more incidents of the “good guys” abusing our private information as well. After breaches of trust at Facebook led to private information being shared and abused by Cambridge Analytica and others, and Google was just fined more than $57 million USD for privacy violations under the GDPR regulation that went into effect last year, people and companies are on high alert when it comes to data privacy.
