The European Data Protection Day is celebrated on January 28 every year. This is the 14th year that Europe celebrates European Data Protection Day, since 2007, focusing on raising awareness among businesses as well as users about the importance of protecting the privacy of their personal information online, particularly in the context of social networking.

Moreover, ENISA has released a report about pseudonymization for personal data protection – Data Pseudonymisation: Advanced Techniques and Use Cases – providing a technical analysis of cybersecurity measures in personal data protection and privacy.
