the leading provider of award-winning data compliance solutions and
expert business services helping organizations domestically and around
the globe, is pleased to celebrate today, Data Privacy Day, by
encouraging awareness of the personal and private data entrusted to
Privacy Day (in US and Canada), or Data Protection Day, as it is
known in Europe,
provides the opportunity for citizens to learn about the risks “to
understand what kind of data about them is collected and processed, why
this is done, and what rights they have” with respect to their data.
It’s also a good time for organizations to evaluate their processes and
The EU’s Justice Commissioner, Vice-President Viviane Reding, describes
the universal problem in today’s release:
"We live in a digital world in which personal data has enormous economic
value. Already, a person's location patterns can be captured and
tracked. Soon, sensors will tell phones whether their users are alone or
in a crowd.”
As a fellow in the European Privacy Association, CSR’s Founder Ross
Federgreen is helping to tackle the reform needed for consumers
worldwide to navigate safely in this digital age. “The Justice
Commissioner hopes to have a uniform, modern protection law effective
for the EU in the next year,” says Federgreen.
In the meantime, Data Privacy Day is marked by activities in the US,
Canada and 27 European countries. CSR team members, active in the
International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), suggest a
good way to get involved is to take the IAPP’s recommendation to
participate by giving presentations
about privacy in your own organizations or at local high schools,
colleges and universities.
For more information, visit the Data
Privacy Day web page to download presentations, see how you can
participate and locate additional ideas and resources. On Twitter,
follow the conversation by using hashtag #DPD13.
For its part, CSR continues to share the need to protect personally
identifiable information, not just credit card data, at this week’s 2013 NorthEast
Acquirers Winter Seminar. CSR’s Director of Consulting Linda Grimm
will deliver “The Future of PCI - Protecting Only Credit Card Data Isn’t
Enough: How to Use Personal Data Protection Services to Improve Customer
Retention and Boost Your Bottom Line” on January 30, describing how
value-added resellers can benefit while helping their customers learn
about protecting personal data.
Another way organizations of all sizes can participate is to learn more
and share CSR’s white paper: “Best
Practices for Managing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) /
Beyond PCI: The New Standard for Securing Data.”
Acquirers, ISOs, payment processors, value-added resellers, franchisors
and other associations interested in offering PCI compliance or
post-breach data solutions like CSR’s PCI
ToolKit, the CSR
Breach Reporting ToolKit or CSR consulting services to their
merchants or members can email [email protected]
or call 1-866-462-7774 for more information.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
