Nationwide Global Effort to Support Data Privacy Day

Hundreds of Organizations Collaborate to Generate Awareness About the Importance of Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - January 20, 2016) - Today Logical Operations announced that it committed to be a Champion of Data Privacy Day (DPD) -- an international effort held annually on January 28 to create awareness about the importance of privacy and protecting personal information. As a DPD Champion, Logical Operations 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 is part of a greater effort, the #PrivacyAware campaign, which helps consumers understand how they can own their online presence and reminds businesses that privacy is indeed good for business. Logical Operations joins the growing global effort among organizations, corporations, educational institutions, government entities, municipalities and individuals to raise awareness at home, at work and in their communities. Through collaboration and unified, consistent messaging about data privacy, all DPD Champions will work toward the common goal of improving consumer and business consciousness while encouraging and empowering all digital citizens to be #PrivacyAware.

"Logical Operations is pleased to support Data Privacy Day as an official Champion," said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. "Protecting personal information and respecting data privacy is extremely important. Devastating data breaches continue to expose consumer information, from personal login credentials, to credit card information and health records, almost every day. Education is the key for individuals to learn how to use the internet safely and take the necessary steps to protect their data."

DPD and the #PrivacyAware campaign are spearheaded by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet.

About Data Privacy Day (DPD)

DPD began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the Jan. 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. The National Cyber Security Alliance, the nation's leading nonprofit, public-private partnership promoting cybersecurity and privacy education and awareness, leads the effort in North America. The Day is advised by a distinguished advisory committee[6] of privacy professionals. The initiative is made possible by generous support from our sponsors:[7].
