SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 28, 2018
Keepsafe, the leader in personal space protection, announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day – an international effort held annually every Jan. 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust. Keepsafe is an official Data Privacy Day 2018 Champion. Its participation affirms that Keepsafe 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. Keepsafe joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, government entities, municipalities and individuals to raise awareness at home, at work and school and in their communities. Through collaboration and unified, consistent messaging about privacy and protecting personal information, 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.
“Defending people’s data privacy and protecting their personal space is at the heart of what Keepsafe does every day. We’re delighted to join forces with the NCSA as Champions of Data Privacy Day,” said Zouhair Belkoura, CEO of Keepsafe. “This is an important initiative and one we expect to be involved with going forward.”
Keepsafe’s Manifesto also reflects its commitment to personal privacy. It reads, “In an era when it seems impossible to keep anything to yourself, privacy is the new freedom. Providing you the power to own that privacy is Keepsafe’s mission.”
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.

About Data Privacy Day
Data Privacy Day 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. NCSA, the nation's leading nonprofit, public-private partnership promoting cybersecurity and privacy education and awareness, leads the effort in North America. The Data Privacy Day initiative is made possible by generous support from our sponsors and is advised by a distinguished advisory committee of privacy professionals.
