SiteLock Website Security to Participate in Online Trust Alliance's Data Privacy Day Events

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 20, 2015) - SiteLock, LLC (www.sitelock.com), the global leader in website security, announced today a partnership with the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) as a member and underwriter of its Data Privacy-Protection Day and Town Hall Events, which feature members of the FBI, FTC and the FCC.

The 2015 Data Privacy & Protection Day (DpD) is a national series of events bringing together public and private sector experts who provide prescriptive and actionable advice about data privacy and protection to the business community. This marks the 6th consecutive year OTA has taken on the leadership role in raising privacy and security awareness via hosting educational town halls, hands-on workshops and networking events. The DpD Town Hall series are underwritten in part by over a dozen leading organizations committed to best practices, consumer empowerment and online trust.

"SiteLock is excited to help the OTA bring awareness to Data Privacy and protection for the business community," says Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. "It's no secret that website security compromises are increasing and damaging the good names that businesses have worked so hard to maintain. These events can help the entire industry share best practices and thwart dangerous cybercriminal efforts."

"OTA is pleased to have SiteLock on board for our Data Privacy Day and its Town Hall Events," notes Craig Spiezle, Executive Director, Founder & President of OTA. "As a leader in global website security, it's important to have SiteLock involved to further the important conversations that serve to enhance the protection of users' security, privacy and identity."

It is important to note that over 70% of security breaches are targeted on small businesses or particular industries. In fact, there are 160,000 new samples of malware being spotted every single day -- while trojans are now responsible for four out of five (79.9 percent) infections around the world. SiteLock aims to help businesses of all sizes to make sure a data breach is prevented.
