KidsEmail Joins a Nationwide Global Effort to Support Data
Hundreds of Organizations Collaborate to Generate Awareness About the Importance of Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater effort, the #PrivacyAware campaign, which helps consumers understand how they can own their online presence and reminds businesses that privacy is indeed good for business. KidsEmail.org joins the growing global effort among organizations, 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 #PrivacyAware.
“We are happy to be signing on as a Champion to support Data Privacy Day. Kids Email prides itself in respecting privacy and safeguarding data. So it’s natural for us to want to support a cause like Data Privacy Day,” says company Marketing Director Brittany Oler.
DPD and the #PrivacyAware campaign are spearheaded by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet.
