SSCC 81 – NCSA and Data Privacy Day

Sophos Security Chet Chat

Chet Chat logoMicahel Kaiser, Executive Director of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) joined me for the second time this week to help raise awareness about Data Privacy Day coming up on January 28th, 2012.

In the podcast Kaiser explains the history of Data Privacy Day and the importance of understanding privacy on the modern internet.

We chatted a bit about the role businesses play in consumer privacy, including my favorite phrase Kaiser shared “If you collect it, protect it.”

Another important message shared by Kaiser is that privacy online isn’t just a personal issue. People need to consider and respect the wishes of their friends, family and colleagues when posting photos or other information on the internet.
