Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust

Make Data Protection a Priority — Celebrate Data Privacy Day Jan. 28th 

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), is collaborating with many educational institutions, corporations, government and non-profit organizations across the world to make Data Privacy Day on January 28th a success. Data Privacy Day is an international day of awareness to educate everyone to respect privacy and safeguard personal information.
NCSA will host a Data Privacy Day forum on January 28th that will explore ways in which we build trust by protecting data and personal information in cyberspace. The forum will take place at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C. from 8-11:30 a.m. ET. Federal Trade Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen will keynote the event. Speakers include:
  • Erin Egan, chief privacy officer at Facebook;
  • David Hoffman, director of security policy and global privacy officer at Intel;
  • Brendon Lynch, chief privacy officer at Microsoft;
  • JoAnn Stonier, chief privacy officer at MasterCard;
  • Ari Schwartz, senior policy advisor, Office of the Secretary, US Dept. of Commerce
  • Justin Brookman, director, Project on Consumer Privacy, CDT
Panelists will participate with other thought leaders from government, academia and industry, who will explore Data stewardship and privacy innovation as well as the implications for personal information in an on-demand mobile environment.
Intel has signed on as a platinum sponsor for the event along with AT&T, Facebook, Google and Microsoft serving as gold sponsors. MasterCard and The George Washington School of Law are silver sponsors and is a small business sponsor.
Keeping the Internet safe, secure and trusted requires investment in protecting personal information and educating about online responsibilities. NCSA and Data Privacy Day partners aim to help Internet users understand and control their online experience and online reputation. We also hope that there will be widespread participation in Data Privacy Day 2013 conversations and events around protecting data online. A list of DPD events can be found at:
