OTA will host Data Privacy & Protection Town Hall meetings on Tuesday, January 29, in New York, NY; and on Wednesday, January 30 in Seattle, WA. OTA also will host complimentary webinars on January 31. All events aim to provide a framework to help businesses protect their data and that of customers, through the experiences of security, law enforcement, and business panelists and from the comprehensive OTA 2013 Data Protection & Breach Readiness Guide.
With the theme of Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust, the Data Privacy Town Halls and Webinars are an effort to empower people to protect their privacy, control their digital footprint and escalate the protection of data privacy as everyone's priority, and as a shared responsibility across the ecosystem.
