Dulles, VA (December 22, 2016) — TruShield Security Solutions today announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day ‒ an international effort held annually on January 28th 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, TruShield Security Solutions 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 easy ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business.
TruShield Security Solutions 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.
“We want to do our part by contributing our voice in the conversation for Data Privacy Day,” stated Paul Caiazzo, cybersecurity strategist and CEO of TruShield. “By becoming a Champion, we contribute to the mission of empowering and supporting digital citizens to use the internet safely and securely, which will not only protect themselves but also our cyber infrastructure.”
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.

The National Cyber Security Alliance, the nation’s leading nonprofit, public-private partnership promoting cybersecurity and privacy education and awareness, leads the effort in North America.
