Intel Celebrates Data Privacy Day

On January 28, Intel celebrated Data Privacy Day, a day in which events are held around the world to recognize the importance of protecting the privacy and security of personal information.  Intel privacy professionals participated in a number of Data Privacy Day activities.

I attended an event yesterday in Washington, DC at The Newseum sponsored by The Future of Privacy Forum, which featured a panel discussion on privacy issues involved in social networking.  Make sure to check out a new FTC consumer education publication discussed at the event called Net Cetera, which discusses how parents can talk with their kids about being online.

Also, David Hoffman, Intel’s Global Privacy Officer, participated in the second of the FTC’s roundtables exploring privacy, at a conference held in Berkeley, California.  And Audrey Plonk, a security policy specialist, is speaking at a California Law Review-sponsored event at Berkeley Law, the Prosser Privacy Symposium

Intel believes that protecting consumers’ privacy and security is of the upmost importance and is pleased to have been a sponsor of the 2010 Data Privacy Day.
