Secured Communications was built on security, ensuring client data privacy the core of its foundation
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Secured Communications today announced its commitment to Data Privacy Day by registering as a Champion for the yearly campaign. As a Champion, Secured Communications recognizes and supports the principle that all organizations share the responsibility of being conscientious stewards of personal information and data privacy overall.
Data Privacy Day is a global event, taking place annually on January 28th, that generates awareness about the importance of privacy, highlights easy ways to protect personal information, and reminds organizations that privacy is good for business. This year, the events theme is “Own Your Privacy,” and participants are encouraging individuals to learn more about how to protect the valuable data that is online, and encouraging businesses to “Respect Privacy”, by keeping individuals’ personal information safe from unauthorized access and using only fair, relevant, and legitimate data collection and processing techniques.
Secured Communications is the global leader in safeguarding communications. Developed in partnership with former senior FBI and global law enforcement leaders, the company’s suite of products protects information with the most advanced and intuitive encrypted solutions. Its platform is trusted by counterterrorism professionals, public safety agencies and vetted corporations worldwide. Mercury, powered by Secured Communications, allows users to host secured video conferences, make secure calls, send messages, and share files seamlessly, all within a single application interface.
In keeping with protecting personal information, the content of Secured Communications client messages and files is encrypted at the source and decrypted at the intended receiving device; the company does not collect or store the keys to decrypt the information. Indeed, the company is uniquely positioned among peers in its commitment not to scrape, analyze, or sell any client data.
Robert Wilson, Secured Communications’ CEO, stated, “Because we feel very strongly about protecting the privacy and security of all client communications, as well as mitigating company risk, we created the Mercury platform to be ‘Impenetrable. Period.’” He continued, “Security and data privacy are the top priorities in every decision we make as a company.”
According to a Pew Research Center study, 79% of U.S. adults report being concerned about the way their data is being used by companies. As technology evolves and the pandemic continues to influence how consumers interact with businesses online, data collection practices are becoming increasingly unavoidable, making it imperative that companies act responsibly.
“In recent years, we’ve seen the impact of more global awareness surrounding the abuse of consumer data, thanks to sweeping privacy measures like GDPR and CPRA,” said Kelvin Coleman, Executive Director, NCSA. “And while legislative backing is key to reinforcing accountability for poor data privacy practices, one major goal of Data Privacy Day is to build awareness among businesses about the benefits of an ethical approach to data privacy measures separate from legal boundaries.”
