Event Description

Join us for the 2018 International Data Privacy Day edition of Privacy Lab for privacy in the education sector. Student privacy often faces a conundrum. How do organizations balance student privacy with legal requirements and benefits that can be gained from collecting data for instructional purposes? How can they prioritize when privacy often comes with a price tag and the public education system isn't exactly flush with cash? Are there interesting comparisons and contrasts between K-12, higher education and edtech? Join us in person for light refreshments and networking.
