Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear and the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) encourage Kentuckians to learn how to protect their valuable data online.
Jan. 28, 2021 is Data Privacy Day, an international effort to empower individuals and encourage businesses to respect privacy, safeguard data and enable trust. Millions of people are unaware of how their personal information is being used, collected or shared in our digital society.
Kentuckians can learn more on the National Cybersecurity Data Alliance's website at https://staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-day.
"We are all relying more on technology during the pandemic--for banking, shopping, communicating, and accessing health care, government services and education," said Gov. Beshear. "Even after we win the war against the coronavirus, technology will continue to transform our commonwealth as we move forward to build a better Kentucky."
"While virtual tools open new possibilities, they also raise questions about privacy and how to stay safe online," Gov. Beshear said.
"Your personal information is extremely valuable," said Commissioner Charles Vice of the Department of Financial Institutions.

DFI offers these best practices for consumers to guard their data privacy:
