Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data, Enabling Trust

Data Privacy Day | January 28, 2018Data Privacy Day Champion

EDUCAUSE celebrates Data Privacy Day on January 28 in partnership with and many other Data Privacy Day Champions. Every year we encourage the higher education community to use NCSA's free resources and promotional tools to help ensure our campus communities are respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust. Planning for 2018 activities has just begun; more details about resources and events will be available here later this fall. 

In 2017, EDUCAUSE offered a free webinar, published 12 new guest blogs in the Security Matters column, and hosted an open call of the Higher Education Chief Privacy Officers Working Group to discuss the privacy implications of third-party services. Many institutions hosted awareness events and coordinated activities throughout the months of January and February.
