Written By Digital Content Editor Thomas Ahearn

On January 23, 2023, the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) announced the program for the 2023 Data Privacy Week campaign that will take place from January 22 to 28, 2023, to continue to raise awareness about the importance of digital privacy for consumers and businesses, according to a news release from the NCA.

After expanding Data Privacy Day into a week-long initiative for the first time last year, the 2023 Data Privacy Week campaign’s themes will focus on reinforcing consumer knowledge about personal data protection while addressing the responsibility of businesses for ethical user privacy and data collection practices. 

This year’s Data Privacy Week focuses on content centered around the following two themes – “Data: The Story of You” and “For Organizations: Respect Privacy” The NCA is hosting a series of events featuring privacy experts, policymakers, and engineers to promote the campaign’s core themes. These events include:

  • Data: The Story of You (January 24, 2023, at 12:00 PM ET) – Experts will discuss best practices around protecting data trails associated with individual users and their families. 
  • Data Privacy Week #PrivacyChat (January 25, 2023, at 2:00 PM ET) – Users can tune into NCA’s (@StaySafeOnline) Twitter chat to share top tips, advice, and resources for consumers and businesses, as well as connect with other data privacy and security advocates and educators. 
  • Designing a Privacy-First World (January 26, 2023, at 2:00 PM ET) – Experts will convene to discuss why data privacy is becoming a more central issue with each passing year, as well as why the concept must be a key design component for any product, business, or society with data privacy in mind. 

“Data Privacy Week is critical for arming consumers with the tools they need to take ownership of their digital identities and to remind them to think critically about who they share their data with and how to protect it,” NCA Executive Director Lisa Plaggemeier stated in the news release from the NCA.

“It’s also a platform to emphasize why businesses must maintain a gold standard of respect and transparency around how they collect, store and use consumer data, alongside the benefits of doing so,” she added.
