Nashua, NH, January 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Today SnoopWall announced that it is now a Champion of Data Privacy Day (DPD). As a DPD Champion, SnoopWall recognizes and supports the principle that organizations, businesses and government all share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information by respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
Data Privacy Day, observed annually on January 28, 2015, is an international awareness effort to encourage Internet users to consider the privacy implications of their online actions and motivate all companies to make privacy and data protection a greater priority. SnoopWall joins the growing effort among organizations, corporations, educational institutions, government entities and municipalities globally to raise awareness and educate consumers about how their personal information may be collected, the benefits and risks of sharing personal information as well as the nature and scope of online data usage. Through collaborative efforts and unified, consistent messaging about data privacy, all DPD Champions will work toward the goal of improving consumer consciousness and empowering everyone to safeguard their privacy.
“SnoopWall is proud to be recognized as a consumer privacy champion and take part in this important activity,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, CEO, SnoopWall, “as we continue to expand our free apps, advisories, reports and tips for consumers to protect themselves online and reclaim their privacy.”
Spearheaded by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day recognition in Europe. The day, January 28, commemorates the 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty addressing privacy and data protection.
