Today is Data Privacy Day in Europe and in the US, and a a study performed by the Ponemon Institute puts Mozilla in the spotlight by naming it Most Trusted Internet Company for Privacy in 2012 (see the 1.4MB PDF document). I’ll leave it to Harvey Anderson, Mozilla’s General Counsel to explain how this reflects Mozilla’s efforts:
This is certainly quite a distinction and the product of a user-centric philosophy implemented by contributors to the Mozilla project over the past decade. Engineers, UX designers, security, engagement, IT and privacy folks have made thousands of small decisions over the years that have collectively created the user trust reflected by this survey.
It’s really nice to see Mozilla’s work in the privacy domain being recognized by consumers.
