Every January 28, hundreds of organizations and individuals collaborate to generate awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust. Everlaw has announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day ‒ an international effort held annually to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – by signing up as a Data Privacy Day 2020 Champion. As a Champion, Everlaw recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Privacy and protecting personal information is important to us. We prioritize keeping important data safe with enterprise-class security protocols and privacy standards. We apply a comprehensive approach that spans architecture, software, design, people and process, which has been validated by our SOC 2 Type 2 certification in Security, Confidentiality, Availability, and Privacy in addition to being FedRAMP In Process. We have also completed a third-party HIPAA Compliance Assessment that evaluated compliance with the HIPAA Administrative, Physical and Technical Safeguards, as well as an independent GDPR Compliance Readiness Assessment. All Data Privacy Day Champions are working toward the common goal of improving individual and business consciousness toward respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
What is Data Privacy Day?
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. This year, we are encouraging everyone to “Own Your Privacy” by learning more about how to help protect the valuable data that is online. One simple thing anyone can do is to update their privacy settings by using a helpful tool created by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet.
