International Privacy Day: Threats to Personal Data and the People Who Fight Them

This January 28 marks International Privacy Day. Different countries around the world are celebrating this day with their own events. This year, we are honoring the day by calling attention to recent international privacy threats and interviewing data protection authorities, government officials, and activists to gain insight into various aspects of privacy rights and related legislation in their own respective countries.

These are a list of the articles we'll be posting, which we'll be adding to in the coming days. You can follow our series by subscribing to EFF on Twitter, identi.ca, Facebook, or by checking back to this page. We’ll be listing the articles below.
