Spotlight on Children’s Digital Privacy – Today & Tomorrow

This session looks at children’s privacy in three geographical areas: the EU, UK, and US. We explore where each area is today with legal requirements and enforcement and what you can expect in the future. We discuss how online providers who continue to ignore children and young adult users of their online services do so with growing risk. We talk about certification programs and other ways online providers can prepare for the future. We conclude with discussing the importance of taking responsibility for promoting children and young people’s rights to participate in a safe and secure digital environment.

About Data Privacy Day

Data Privacy Day is a global effort -- taking place annually on January 28th -- that generates awareness about the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the Jan. 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Millions of people are unaware of and uninformed about how their personal information is being used, collected or shared in our digital society. Data Privacy Day aims to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and companies to take action. For more information, visit
