Cartoon Data Minimization - TeachPrivacy Privacy Awareness Training 02 small

This privacy cartoon is about data minimization, a principle embodied in many privacy laws.  Under the data minimization principle, organizations are to collect, process, or share only the minimum necessary personal data to achieve their purpose.  There’s a lot of hat tipping to data minimization, but this principle is often not followed enough.  Far too often, personal data is collected without any particular purpose in mind and far too much is shared than necessary.
