Championing Data Privacy & Protection to Enhance Consumer Trust
Data Privacy & Protection Day (DpD) recognizes the first data privacy directive signed on January 28, 1981. Today DpD is 'celebrated' as Data Protection Day internationally, (Data Protection Day in the US), recognizing the importance of data protection and adoption of responsible privacy practices. This year marks the 9th year OTA continued its international leadership in raising privacy and security awareness via hosting educational town halls, hands-on workshops and networking events. History of Data Protection Day
Supporting DpD, OTA publishes the annual Cyber Incident & Breach Readiness Guide, promoting security standards, responsible privacy practices and related tools to aid organizations in enhancing the protection of their data and being prepared for a data loss incident. Reflecting the evolution of cybercrime beyond the traditional breach, the 2017 Guide has been broadened to include the wider impact of cyber incidents. As defined by OTA researchers, incidents include unauthorized; 1) access to a system or device and its data, 2) extraction, deletion or damage to any form of data, 3) disruption of availability and/or integrity of any business operation, and/or 4) activities causing financial or reputational harm.
