Russell Richardson has announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day  ‒ an international effort held annually on January 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – by signing on as a Champion. As a Data Privacy Day Champion, Russell Richardson recognises and supports the principle that organisations, businesses and government all share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information.

Data Privacy Day is part of a greater awareness campaign that creates awareness about the importance of privacy, informs about easy ways to protect personal information and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. This is the third year that Russell Richardson have supported Data Privacy Day as Champions. Through collaboration and unified, consistent messaging about data privacy, all Data Privacy Day Champions are working toward the common goal of improving individual and business consciousness toward respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.   

“Data Privacy Day is a growing international effort that we are pleased to be able to get involved with,” said Jonathan Richardson, managing director at Russell Richardson. “We champion data protection principles all year round but welcome the opportunity to put data protection in the spotlight and get people thinking and talking about how they handle data and privacy.”
