This year’s initiative emphasizes promoting transparency and educating businesses on data collection and data privacy best practices.
Peabody, MA, January 24, 2024 — Access, the world’s largest privately-held integrated information management services provider, today announced its continued commitment to data privacy by becoming a Data Privacy Week Champion for the 4th consecutive year. As a 2024 Champion, Access recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.
Data Privacy Week is an annual expanded effort from Data Privacy Day, taking place from January 21 – 27, 2024, dedicated to spreading awareness about online privacy among individuals and organizations. The goal is twofold: to help users understand that they have the power to securely manage their data, and to help organizations understand why it is important that they respect their users’ data.
“Personal information is a very important, sensitive, and valuable asset,” said Tony Skarupa, CEO at Access. “In today’s era of digital evolution, Data Privacy Week serves as a reminder that safeguarding information is our collective responsibility as we empower individuals and businesses to use their data to its fullest extent in a safe and secure way. At Access, we are proud to call ourselves Data Privacy Week Champions as we uphold the precious right to data privacy.”
As a manager of records and information for thousands of customers, protecting information for millions of people globally, we recognize the need for strong privacy protection has never been greater. For information management professionals, this week serves as a reminder of the critical role they play in ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive information. Records management professionals must stay informed about the latest privacy laws and regulations, as well as best practices for protecting personal data. This means not only protecting against external threats but also ensuring that internal policies and procedures are designed to safeguard personal information.
