Observe Data Privacy Day and Raise Your Information Security Awareness
On January 28, the National Cyber Security Alliance will lead the recognition of Data Privacy Day, originally started in 2008 to celebrate an international effort to increase awareness of the importance of “respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust” online.
This year, taking time to think about data privacy is especially relevant, as new technologies are transforming the way people conduct their business online. The risks of data breaches became even more apparent in 2014, and both customers and businesses are doing what they can to try to become more aware of ways to keep data secure.
The goal of Data Privacy Day is to raise awareness and educate everyone who is involved with sharing information online or concerned about how to protect that information – businesses, consumers, families, and educators. At Futurex, we are again showing our support as an official Data Privacy Day Champion and are dedicated to raising awareness of this important topic throughout the year.
We have provided many resources for individuals and corporations looking to take control of their information: on our blog, in our line of data security solutions, and throughout our social media presence. We also encourage you to check out the material on the official National Cyber Security Alliance website, which is filled with tips and helpful information on data protection relevant for individuals, teachers, and businesses. Start discovering ways to get involved today!
