By David A. Hoffman, Director of Security Policy and Global Privacy Officer
Today kicks off a week of activities surrounding Data Privacy Day. Data Privacy Day (or Data Protection Day in Europe) is celebrated on January 28 each year. The day honors worldwide commitment to privacy and security, and to recognize the anniversary (this year, the 30th anniversary) of The Council of Europe’s Convention 108, which recognized Privacy as a fundamental human right. To start the week off, Intel today is releasing a brand new brochure (found here: Intel_Priv_Sec_Guide) describing our policy positions on a whole host of privacy and security issues.
Increasing trust in the use of digital devices is fundamental to Intel’s business. Our mission is to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on earth. Privacy and Security are foundational components for what is required for this enrichment. Intel has invested substantially in privacy and security innovation in our technologies. We also want to see innovation in the privacy and security policy environment. This brochure includes our ideas on how to create global privacy and security protections, which will protect individuals, spur innovation and increase economic growth.
Please take a look at our policy positions and let us know what you think.
