Data Privacy News

New technologies are constantly changing the issue of data privacy. These changes range from the small and incremental to those which make old ideas and rules obsolete. It has therefore never been more important to stay up-to-date with data privacy news, which is why we created this tailored email digest. This applies to everyone who uses the internet, as the issue of data privacy affects all. The topic includes considerations of the type and nature of personal data that individuals believe should be private. It also covers the way companies, governments and other organizations access and store that data. And it covers the laws that govern the whole topic. It is rarely out of the news with things like whistleblowers being accused of leaking state secrets; to security breaches at leading companies resulting in compromised customer information; to policy debates as to how long personal data can be stored. To stay informed about all of these issues get the Wiser data privacy news email today. Once signed up you will receive a free daily email featuring the latest and most important data privacy news and information from around the web.
