Respecting Privacy. Safeguarding Data. Enabling Trust.

(Internet Safety, Privacy, Identity Theft) Permanent link

DPDlogoJanuary 28 is Data Privacy Day. To mark the occasion, the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) announced a series of town hall meetings and the release of the OTA 2013 Data Protection & Breach Readiness Guide. Attorney General Bob Ferguson is the keynote for the Seattle event on January 30.

“As citizens increasingly rely on the Internet for their personal and business lives, businesses are looking to implement safeguards to enhance the protection of their data from abuse and potential identity theft,” said AG Ferguson. “Working together, we can assist businesses and implement voluntary best practices to help protect consumers from harm while holding cybercriminals accountable. The efforts outlines by OTA are important steps towards reaching this goal.”

The town hall meetings and guide provide framework that addresses issues that can help businesses protect their data and prepare for a data loss incident.

OTA is a non-profit, whose mission is to enhance online trust, while promoting innovation and the vitality of the Internet. The organization’s goal is to help educate businesses, policy makers and stakeholders while developing and advancing best practices and tools to enhance protection of users’ security, privacy and identity.
