Tackling privacy concerns through print

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the importance of ensuring the security and privacy of the individuals who use devices connected by the internet or other means was brought to the forefront.

In a presentation given by a representative from the U.S. Trade Commission during the January 6-9 event, it was noted that although digital means have the potential to bring great benefit to those who use them, and also society as a whole, it is important to keep the security of private data in mind. It was stressed that consumers have the right to know what data is being collected for them, how it is being stored, and what it is being used for.

Providing the users of the technology with this information in a way that is accessible and simple to understand, while also giving them to choice of whether or not to use it, can be made much easier through the services of a print company. For example, brochure printers can help to design and create informational pamphlets that explain this information using everyday language. They can even be provided to potential customers before they make their purchase, giving them more choice as to whether or not they want to use a form of technology that can share their information.

While the newest devices have a great potential to help people through keeping them connected, there can be a downside. This can be minimized through keeping people abreast of the issues surrounding privacy and security.
