January is Data Privacy Month

01/02/2013

Contributed by Kris Monroe

Data Privacy Month is an annual effort to empower people to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint, as well as escalate the protection of privacy and data as everyone's priority. Spend the month helping to ensure your campus community is respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust. This year’s Data Privacy Month Planning Task Force has selected weekly themes for the higher education community to focus on. Several free webinars will also be offered throughout the month of January.

Watch for our privacy tips with these themes throughout the month of January :
