Data Privacy Day – January 28, 2012
Data Privacy Day is an international celebration that focuses on educating people about the importance of protecting the privacy of personal information and that promotes individual control over private data. With the explosion of digital communications, people depend increasingly on mobile devices, instant access to information, and intelligent services. As they benefit from using these technologies, consumers and citizens must be vigilant about protecting their personal information. Data Privacy Day generates dialogue among all digital community stakeholders, including businesses, government officials and agencies, educators, nonprofits, academics and individuals to examine how advanced technologies can positively affect daily lives without putting user information and personal data at risk.

Bring your Lunch and Learn On-line Reputation and information Students need to know (Please RSVP to email@example.com due to space limitations)
The Strong Hall CLAS 210 Conference Room is reserved for a Brown Bag Webinar stream for the first 20 respondents to watch the Educause sponsored webinar on Online Reputation and things students (college and high school) need to know. This is presented by an entrepreneur that who was formerly involved in Juicy Campus—so he’s seen it from the dark side, and the presentation is based on a new book he has written for students. This might be of interest to you in your personal life for your own student, or in your job, as every/day is a “teaching moment.”
