Now is the time to protect your personal information online. With the recent highly publicized data breaches, we are witnessing the unveiling of a new round in cyber war – and the bad guys are winning.

Led by the National Cyber Security Alliance, Data Privacy Day (DPD) is observed annually on January 28, with the intention of educating people about the importance of cyber security and to take back control of their privacy.

DPD is not only meant to empower the general public but also companies who may be putting their customers at risk. If your company’s information has been compromised, the breach itself is not the end for the damage that can be inflicted but rather is just the beginning.

On January 22, the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) released the 2014 Data Protection & Breach Readiness Guide and is holding three DPD town halls and breach workshops in the coming weeks:

The OTA town halls and breach workshops hope to put a stop to cyber criminals. OTA’s best practices add in the fight of phishing and securing data. Taking the right steps to respond to breaches as they occur, including securing your company’s email channel to protect consumers’ personal information, is critical to minimizing the aftermath.

With the recent rise in company data breaches, cyber security has never been more important. Both OTA and Agari hope Data Privacy Day will not only educate but also enable people to take hold of their online security and protect themselves against cyber criminals.
