January 9, 2018 – Access Systems announces its commitment to Data Privacy Day ‒ an international effort held annually on Jan. 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – by signing up as a Data Privacy Day 2018 Champion. As a Champion, Access Systems recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Each year, hundreds of organizations and individuals join the National Cyber Security Alliance to collaborate and generate awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
Data Privacy Day is part of a greater campaign that promotes awareness of the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. Access Systems joins the growing global effort among nonprofits, academic institutions, corporations, government entities, municipalities and individuals to raise awareness at home, at work and school and in their communities. Through collaboration and unified, consistent messaging about privacy and protecting personal information, 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 are proud to champion Data Privacy Day on January 28 and to help promote awareness of the importance of privacy on the internet,” said Mitch Henry, Vice President of IT. “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.”
“Access Systems is pleased to take part in this annual effort,” said Shane Sloan, President and CEO. “As a provider of data security services and support, we understand the need to spread awareness and help educate the public on this very important issue. This is an issue that will only continue to grow as our lives become more connected.”
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. NCSA, 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.
