UIW Leads the Way as a Data Privacy Champion During Data Privacy Week 2024!

February 2, 2024

In an era where data is a digital treasure trove, the University of the Incarnate Word proudly stands as a Data Privacy Champion, aligned with the National Cybersecurity Alliance's mission to create a secure, interconnected world.

The National Cybersecurity Alliance, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to advocating for the safe use of technology. Their mission extends to educating individuals on effective ways to safeguard themselves, their families and organizations from cybercrime. By forging strong partnerships between governments and corporations, the Alliance strives to amplify its message and promote a greater "digital" good.

As part of the Data Privacy Week 2024 celebration, the Alliance emphasizes the theme "Take Control of Your Data." Acknowledging that online activities generate vast amounts of data — from interests and purchases to behaviors — collected by various entities worldwide, the focus is on empowering individuals to manage and control their valuable personal information.

UIW invites everyone to take an active role in championing data privacy. By becoming a Data Privacy Week Champion, individuals can join the collective effort to empower others and encourage businesses to respect privacy. Champions receive a toolkit of free resources to share within their organizations and communities.
