Started in 2005 as an effort to drive adoption of best practices, the objectives of the Honor Roll are to 1) recognize leadership and commitment to best practices which aid in the protection of online trust and confidence in online services, 2) Enable businesses to enhance their security, data protection and privacy practices, 3) Move from compliance to stewardship, demonstrating support of meaningful self-regulation, and 4) Promote security & privacy as part of a company's brand promise and value proposition.
Being named to the 2013 Honor Roll is a significant achievement considering the large number of companies that received failing marks for inadequate privacy policies or data collection practices (35%), inadequate domain and consumer protection (22%), and non-secure websites (11%).
