Today is Data Privacy Day!
Jetico celebrates its commitment to privacy by being a Champion of Data Privacy Day (DPD).
As a DPD Champion, Jetico recognizes and supports the principle that organizations, businesses and government all share the responsibility to be conscientious stewards of data by respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
To boost protection of sensitive data and help overcome barriers related to using encryption, Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman will post a guest blog on the National Cyber Security Alliance website: Smile! Encryption is as Easy as That
> About Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day, observed annually on January 28, is an international effort to educate people to protect their privacy and motivate all companies to make the protection of privacy and data a greater priority.
Led by the National Cyber Security Alliance, Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. The Day commemorates the 1981 signing of Convention 108 – the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection.
