Happy Data Privacy Day

The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) has made today Data Privacy Day.  Among other things, they encourage giving either of two presentations in local settings, "Privacy Today" on ways to protect your information and "Teen Privacy Online" that focuses on the use of social networking tools and risks that come with them.

The important note about this effort is that it focuses its attention on the weakest area of privacy protect, the individual themselves.  If people do not protect their own information (for instance, by putting their entire lives in their facebook profile) there is little other groups can do to prevent the misuse of that information.
