Data Privacy Day is an international effort held annually on January 28th to promote the protection of personal information online. The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) has assumed leadership of this effort starting in August 2011. The NCSA is aided by select DPD Champions, a fleet of enterprises, educational institutions, nonprofits, and government organizations committed to raising awareness about the importance of data privacy. Cloudbric is committed to promoting a more safe, secure, and trustworthy transfer of online personal data.
There are many ways that you can get involved ahead of DPD! Stay Safe Online officially lists three strategies for safeguarding your online information:
Be sure to train all employees and stakeholders of the importance of online data security. This will help breed a culture of privacy at the workplace and set a good precedent for all potential security vulnerabilities. Remember, consumer data privacy is the responsibility of all employees in a company.
Protecting consumer data is critical for any company; however, protecting your own personal private information is just as urgent. These days, cyber intruders are always on the offense and looking for new ways to exploit your sensitive data online. Online identity theft is one of the most severe forms of cyber attacks that affects hundreds of thousands of users everyday. Don’t forget to discuss some best practices to protect your online identity and personal information with your family.
Getting involved in your community to spread the knowledge of data privacy can also be a great way to help. The NCSA suggests that users volunteer in local schools, faith based organizations, or community message boards to help others become aware of protecting their personal information. Just like you would share privacy awareness at home and in the workplace, sharing this information with the community can potentially save dozens of your friends and neighbors from becoming victims of sensitive data attacks.
