© 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. The transition away from the old way of handling and storing information on the internet has completely shifted the entire world. Unfortunately, the new method of internet storage has created a lot of issues that concern individuals on a daily basis. We often underestimate how our data is being stored and shared on the internet. Within the last decades, there have been data breaches that have brought light to the issues of data privacy. In order to ensure data privacy, individuals need to be aware of the situation. In this paper, I have proposed a method that analyzes the awareness on data privacy. To address the issues of data privacy, individuals will be asked to complete a questionnaire. The questionnaire will measure individuals’ competence level regarding data privacy.
