Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the ‘108 Convention’, otherwise known as Data Protection Day. This celebrates the date on which the Council of Europe’s data protection convention, known as “Convention 108”, was opened for signature. Data Protection Day is now celebrated globally and is called Privacy Day outside Europe.

You might have seen data protection organisations promote awareness about the rights to personal data protection and privacy. But what is Convention 108?

Convention 108 is seen as the groundwork for data protection legislation and remains the only legally binding international document in data protection. Convention 108 ensures proper legal safeguarding for processing personal data, the right to know about what personal data an organisation has processed and allows for a free flow of personal data between contracting parties.

Take a moment to reflect on Data Protection Day and ask if there any protections you need to put in place for your business. Don’t forget, at Optindigo, we will be your EU Representative.
