Armor for Android today announced that it has become a Champion of Data Privacy Day (DPD). As a DPD Champion, Armor for Android recognizes and supports the principle that organizations, businesses and government all share the responsibility to be conscientious stewards of data by respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
Data Privacy Day, observed annually on January 28, is an international awareness effort to encourage Internet users to consider the privacy implications of their online actions and motivate all companies to make the protection of privacy and data a greater priority. Armor for Android is joining the growing effort among international organizations, corporations, educational institutions, government entities and municipalities across the globe to promote privacy awareness.
“We are please to continue to support the efforts of National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and the Data Privacy Day,” said Chris Walbom CEO of Armor for Android, “Data Privacy Day fits in perfect with our Armor for Android application suite, and we are looking forward to informing our employees and clients.”
Coordinated and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. The day, January 28, commemorates the 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection.
