"The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a non-profit public-private partnership focused on helping all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online and official coordinator of Data Privacy Day (DPD), today announced the official theme for DPD, the creation of a distinguished advisory committee and a new Data Privacy Day Web portal available at: http://staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-day/ . Data Privacy Day is an international awareness effort celebrated across the United States, Canada, Europe and other countries on January 28th every year.
NCSA and the advisory committee worked together to create the theme for Data Privacy Day entitled: 'respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.' The statement speaks to the need for everyone - from individuals and companies - to handle personal information with care and protect it from loss. When we respect privacy and safeguard data we contribute to a safer and more trusted Internet. Additionally, the new portal for Data Privacy Day is a place for any person, organization or company that wants to participate in Data Privacy Day to get ideas, tip sheets and graphics to help them celebrate Data Privacy Day."
