National Cyber Security Alliance Recognizes the Clearinghouse as a Data Privacy Day Champion
Did you know that the ninth annual Data Privacy Day was held on January 28? If you work at the Clearinghouse, you did!
The National Student Clearinghouse was one of more than 450 organizations recognized as a “Data Privacy Day Champion” by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) for its work to raise awareness of the importance of privacy. NSCA sponsors Data Privacy Day to educate individuals on how to protect their personal information, and help organizations understand how good data privacy practices protect their customers and users.
The Clearinghouse’s legal department developed a successful internal awareness campaign that reflected the day’s theme of “Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust.” As part of its own “Data Privacy Week 2017,” Clearinghouse employees were provided with a full week of training and information on its privacy policies, compliance, and more.
The Clearinghouse efforts as part of the most successful Data Privacy Day to date were cited in NCSA’s Data Privacy Day 2017 impact report.
“This recognition among our peers in the data privacy space highlights our company’s strong commitment to privacy and the protection of PII entrusted to the Clearinghouse by our clients,” said Mary Chapin, Chief Legal Officer at the Clearinghouse.
