We at Everlaw are pleased to announce our commitment to Data Privacy Day—an international effort held annually on Jan. 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust—by signing up as a Data Privacy Day 2019 Champion.
As a 2019 Champion, as well as a 2018 Champion, Everlaw recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater campaign that promotes awareness of the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information, and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. In North America, the Data Privacy Day initiative is officially led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet. Everlaw joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, government entities, municipalities, and individuals to raise awareness at home, at work, at school, and in their communities.
We have customers around the world, and are committed to cultivating an organizational culture in support of privacy and data protection.
This means that we take the time to explain our approach to data protection to all of our team members—giving people control of their personal data in line with the right to respect for privacy, and ensuring that personal data is secure. Each team at Everlaw, from Engineering to Sales, has implemented Privacy by Design Principles into their day-to-day activities. Our Security and Compliance team is active in the privacy community, and are looking forward to joining the NCSA at Data Privacy Day Live, hosted at LinkedIn in San Francisco this year.
