Data Privacy Week 2023: Why Data Privacy Matters

Your data is valuable. Even if you disagree, many organizations and groups will pay top dollar for it, and they don’t all have your best interests in mind. But you have the power to take charge of your data. This is why DataLocker is excited to be an official Champion of #DataPrivacyWeek and celebrate the second-ever Data Privacy Week!

As we observe Data Privacy Week, it’s essential to take a moment to reflect on the importance of protecting our personal and business information. In today’s digital age, we share more personal data than ever through work, social media, online shopping, or simply using our smartphones. But with this increased sharing comes an increased risk of data breaches and identity theft.

Personal customer information (such as name, email, and password) is included in 44% of data breaches. (IBM)

All your online activity generates a trail of data. Websites, apps, and services collect data on your behaviors, interests, and purchases. This data includes sensitive personal and business information that can put you at risk.

While it’s true that you cannot control how each byte of data about you and your organization is shared and processed, you are not helpless! You can often control how you share your data with a few simple steps. Remember, your data is precious, and you deserve to be selective about who you share it with!

It’s more important than ever to protect your sensitive information. One of the most effective ways to do this is using a reputable solution like DataLocker. Our award-winning product line includes everything from encrypted hardware and cloud storage to remote device management. Our technology is used by two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies and security and military agencies at the highest levels of the Federal Government.


Data privacy, and data security go hand-in-hand. Along with managing your data privacy settings, DataLocker’s cybersecurity solutions can help provide simple solutions to keep it safe.

SafeConsole Central Management Software

  •  Password Protection: DataLocker’s SafeConsole central management platform allows IT teams to manage and secure many devices and endpoints easily. This platform provides a simple, intelligent way to provision, secure, manage, and audit encrypted USB drives, ports, and virtual drives.  SafeConsole allows you to set up password protection for USB devices and virtual drives, ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data. The platform also provides options for logging and alerting, so you can keep track of who is accessing your data and when. SafeConsole supports Single Sign-On (SSO), which allows users to use a single set of login credentials across multiple systems, improving security and ease of use.


  • Multifactor authentication (MFA): SafeConsole also supports multifactor authentication, which adds layer of security to the login process. This feature allows you to require users to provide a second form of verification in addition to their passwords, such as a fingerprint or a one-time code sent to their phone. This helps to ensure that only authorized users can access your data.


  • Automatic device, software, and browser updates: SafeConsole allows IT professionals to automate the process of updating the firmware and software on the devices and endpoints managed through the platform. This feature ensures that all devices are running the latest software and firmware version, which helps to fix security vulnerabilities and improve performance. It also allows you to schedule updates at specific times, so they don’t interfere with business operations.

Encrypted USB Flash and Hard Drives

Our various encryption devices, such as the DL4 FE, Sentry K350, and Sentry One, provide full disk encryption, meaning that all data stored on the device is encrypted unreadable without the proper decryption key. If the device is lost or stolen, its data remains protected.

Additionally, it offers hardware-based encryption, ensuring that the encryption keys are stored on the device and not on the host computer. This means that even if a hacker manages to access the host computer, they can only access the data on the encryption device with the proper decryption key.  With SafeConsole’s remote management capabilities, IT professionals can manage and monitor the devices from a central location, including remotely wiping the devices if they are lost or stolen.

Our solutions allow you to control who has access to your data. You can set permission levels for different users to ensure that only the people you trust have access to your sensitive information. This is especially important for businesses, as it allows them to ensure that only authorized employees have access to sensitive company data.

At DataLocker, we take data privacy very seriously. We are committed to protecting your personal information and giving you control over who has access to it. Using our SafeConsole platform and encryption devices, you can be confident that your data is safe and secure, even in today’s increasingly digital world.

So if you’re looking for a way to protect your personal information and keep your data safe, consider DataLocker’s state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions. We’re here to help you take control of your privacy and keep your data secure.
