Fort Lauderdale, January 26, 2017 —Today LAN Infotech announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day ‒ an international effort held annually on January 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – by signing on as a Champion. As a Data Privacy Day Champion, LAN Infotech recognizes and supports the principle that organizations, businesses, and government all share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater awareness campaign that creates awareness about the importance of privacy, informs about natural ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. LAN Infotech joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, 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 Data Privacy Day Champions are working toward the common goal of improving individual and business consciousness toward respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
“LAN Infotech is pleased to support Data Privacy Day. Privacy professionals from around the world are pausing to remind governments, businesses, and individuals of the importance of respecting data privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust,” says Michael Goldstein, President and CEO, LAN Infotech. “With the ever-growing list of people and applications sharing personal data, it’s more important than ever that organizations prioritize online trust and data protection in order to safeguard the security and privacy of their customers.”
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 trustworthy 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. The National Cyber Security Alliance, the nation’s leading nonprofit, public-private partnership promoting cyber security 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.
