With less than two months until Data Privacy Day on January 28, 2014, excitement is growing and PRIVATE WiFi is proud to be in on the action. As a day of awareness to focus on respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust for all digital users, Data Privacy Day (DPD) has been coordinated by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NSCA) since 2008.
“Protecting privacy and data are key ways we can build a safer, more trusted Internet,” said Michael Kaiser, executive director of NCSA. “The reach of our messages are amplified exponentially because of DPD Champions and supporters elevating the importance of protecting personal information and privacy.”
As a first-time small business sponsor, PRIVATE WiFi is co-hosting tomorrow’s Twitter #ChatDPD (Wednesday, December 11 at 3pm ET). With the help of other guests, @DataPrivacyDay, @ATTSmallBiz, @AppsAlliance and @StaySafeOnline, the chat will discuss the privacy ramifications of living in an ever-evolving mobile world. Along with the fellow co-hosts, @PRIVATEWiFi will offer insights for protecting privacy on the go in a mobile, on-demand world where access to the Internet at any given moment is a necessity.
Additionally, PRIVATE WiFi wrote a special DPD guest blog for StaySafeOnline.org. Featuring our infographic about WiFI privacy and identity theft, the post is an added benefit to the already unique data privacy offerings featured on the site. The NCSA has also launched a new portal for Data Privacy Day — a one-stop shop to get started in participating in DPD. Organizations can learn how to become a champion, get ideas for awareness activities, see events happening around the country, and find a list of links to privacy settings at the popular websites.
“There is nothing more essential then raising awareness around privacy issues and trends,” said Kent Lawson, Founder and CEO of PRIVATE WiFi. “Our company is proud of be a small business sponsor for this fantastic event promoting the importance of data privacy and security for consumers and small businesses around the globe.”
Culminating all of these initiatives leading up to DPD, the official kick-off will be a global privacy forum at The Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington, DC, on January 28!
