Don't know about Data Privacy Week?

This is not surprising: this event is not yet well known in France or in the rest of the world.

And that's a shame, because while the subject of data security affects us all personally, it also affects us professionally. With the rise of B2B SaaS software, companies are increasingly dumping their data in the cloud, sometimes without knowing how to protect it.

In this article, we decipher for you the Data Privacy Week, which will soon become - we hope - a must-attend data security event.

Data Privacy Week, the week dedicated to your data privacy

The birth of Data Privacy Week was based on the observation that millions of people and companies do not know or are not informed about how their information is used and how to protect it. Data theft can be costly for a company: it weakens both its balance and its competitiveness.

🛡️ What is Data Privacy Week?

Data Privacy Week aims to address the data security shortcomings of companies and individuals through webinars, conferences, training and a myriad of educational resources.

The initiative was originally designed to raise awareness among businesses and users alike of the importance of protecting the privacy of their personal information online.

When is Data Privacy Week?

Data Privacy Week takes place from 24 to 28 January.

📘 What is the story behind Data Privacy Week?

In 2007, the Council of Europe launched the European Data Protection Day. It commemorates the signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection, which took place on 28 January 1981.

As an extension of this day, the United States, Canada, Israel and 47 countries in Europe created Data Privacy Day and then Data Privacy Week.


🙊 Do you speak security?

A few weeks ago, we announced that Hyperlex had achieved the international information security management system certification ISO 27001:2013 and its privacy extension ISO 27701:2019!

This certification, issued by AFNOR, attests to the high level of security provided by Hyperlex to its clients and partners.

And that's when we decided to write a whole series of contents around security. Because it seems normal to us, as a provider of contract management software in SaaS mode, to be trained and to communicate on this subject.
