Central Hudson Champions Data Privacy Day

January 28, 2017, marks Data Privacy Day, an annual recognition of the importance of protecting personal information. Central Hudson serves as a Champion of this important international initiative, first recognized on Jan. 28, 1981. As a Champion, Central Hudson demonstrates support for the data privacy initiative and the critical awareness of data protection.

"Protecting and securing our customer's personal information is a top priority at Central Hudson, and we take significant steps to ensure the privacy of personal data through training, working with industry and cyber security experts and utilization of various cyber security measures," said Charles A. Freni, Senior Vice President of Customer Services and Transmission & Distribution. "As a Champion of Data Privacy Day, we're encouraging our customers and all businesses and organizations to protect their data and the information they are entrusted with, each and every day."

Freni explained that everyone has a role in protecting personal data, including businesses that maintain information about their customers and individuals sending email, posting to social media sites and accessing the Internet for personal use. "Not only is it important to protect information from intruders, we must also take care in the information individuals personally share with others online," he said.

The Data Privacy Day initiative is led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet.
