Riverbank supports Data Privacy Day

Hundreds of organisations collaborate to generate awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.

Yesterday, we announced that we’ve committed to being 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, we recognise and support the principle that organisations, 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 privacy awareness campaign, which helps consumers understand how they can own their online presence and reminds businesses that privacy is indeed good for business.

We’ve joined the growing global effort among organisations, 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 more aware of their privacy.
DPD and the privacy aware campaign are spearheaded by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a non-profit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet.
