JANUARY 13, 2017 — Today Nuspire Networks 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, Nuspire 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 campaign to create awareness about the importance of privacy, inform about easy ways to protect personal information, and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. Nuspire 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.
As a leading Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), Nuspire is very cognitive about how important it is to safeguard data. Not only for clients, but for employees in their personal lives and in the general population. The threats of sensitive data being stolen and identity theft risks are increasing each year. At Nuspire, all employees are trained on Network Security and best practices, whether they are in an IT role or not.
Network Engineering Manager for Nuspire, Pat Kanai, says, “Nuspire has always been a leader in the managed security industry and has helped promote network security awareness among our customers and the general public. We are proud and honored to endorse and support the National Cyber Security Alliance and Data Privacy Day."
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.

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 cybersecurity 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.
