“Alberta joins countries around the world in marking Jan. 28 as Data Privacy Day and recognizing the importance of privacy and safeguarding our personal information in a digital world.

“Albertans are increasingly reliant on technology in their everyday lives. It is an essential part of how we connect, communicate and do business.

“As technology has a growing impact on our daily lives, Alberta must be proactive, both to modernize government service delivery and to protect Albertans’ privacy in a digital world. 

“Keeping the data of Albertans safe and secure will remain our No. 1 priority as Alberta’s government continues to work to modernize government services so they are better, faster and smarter.”
