Campaign to Spotlight the Best and the Worst Practices in Online Security, Identity Theft and Data Protection, and Privacy
Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
In the spirit of the Olympic Games under way in London, IDentity Theft 911, a national leader in identity and data risk services, will award gold, silver and bronze medals to companies and government institutions for their performance in different events in the 2012 (In)Security Games.
To raise awareness about identity and data protection best practices, IDentity Theft 911 will announce medalists in a series of blogs posted to its Knowledge Center over the course of the next two weeks.
IDentity Theft 911 experts will reveal winners and losers in different events, including Consumer Protection Decathalon, the Online Threat Firewall-Vault, and the 100-Meter Privacy Dash. Learn which companies experienced the thrill of a well-designed privacy plan and which ones felt the agony of an easily prevented data breach.
“The Olympics inspire people all around the world to strive to be the best,” said Matt Cullina, IDentity Theft 911’s chief executive officer. “Our goal is to motivate consumers, businesses and organizations to do the same—to strengthen their data security and privacy practices."
"In our blog series, IDentity Theft 911 experts will show how proper security training can help consumers and organizations guard against dropping the security baton or falling off the privacy bars,” Cullina said. “And if they do fall, we’ll show how a solid protection plan will aid in a speedy recovery.”
