Data Privacy Day and Data Privacy Month

It is timely that our roll out of two-step login occurs just after International Data Privacy Day (Jan. 28) and ahead of Data Data Privacy Day logoPrivacy Month (Feb. 1-28). Using two-step login is one good privacy practice this initiative highlights as it helps us protect personal information collected for university business purposes (or our own and our families') from inappropriate and unauthorized access. Privacy and protecting personal information is important to UC San Diego. We all have a role in privacy and security, as well as respecting and protecting the personal information of our colleagues and students. We are #PrivacyAware
