Celebrate Data Privacy Day 2019!
Jetico is proud to promote the annual Data Privacy Day on January 28, with this year's spotlight on the value of information. On Data Privacy Day, hundreds of organizations and individuals collaborate to generate awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
As a Data Privacy Day Champion, Jetico joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, government entities, municipalities and individuals to raise awareness in their communities both at home and work.
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater campaign that promotes awareness of the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. With more transactions taking place online and information being exchanged digitally, both citizens and organizations can take steps to keep their data properly stored, handled and safe
from data breaches.
In North America, the Data Privacy Day initiative is officially led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), which is a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet. The NCSA has gathered useful tips for consumers to learn online safety basics, keep accounts and devices safe and much more on their site at staysafeonline.org/stay-safe-online.
For organizations, the NCSA offers the CyberSecure My Business™ program for protecting digital assets and guides
such as their handy Technology Checklist - where of course data encryption and data wiping are recommended.
We also recommend tuning in to the Data Privacy Day livestream on Monday, January 28 at 2pm PST / 5pm EST, where data security experts from various organizations will be talking on interesting subjects such as GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act, ‘Security and Privacy in the Cloud’ and ‘The Future of Privacy and Breakthrough Technologies’.
Stay safe out there!
