Today marks one of the most important days in the calendar for privacy - Data Privacy Day! 

From hackable vibrators and spying on football fans, to ignoring the ICO and banning surnames on schoolbooks, its been a decade of funny to downright terrifying data privacy fails that every organisation can learn from. 

By learning from these past mistakes, we can ensure the next 10 years are remembered for championing greatness in data privacy, and produce a decade of privacy wins.
