More Needs to Be Done to Protect Student and Teacher Privacy
December 18, 2018
Hosted by Rebecca Herold
Throughout school history students have heard the threat “That will go on your permanent record!” It didn’t mean much since those permanent records were on paper and usually shoved to the back of a filing cabinet after graduation. But in recent years, now not only grades, but basically all that students & teachers do are recorded digitally to follow them for the rest of their lives; for good & for bad. Plus, US Dept. of Education actions are creating student privacy risks, and so are misguided attempts by school districts to improve safety in ways that invade privacy. Third parties, such as testing organizations, also are taking huge amounts of student personal data and monetizing it, further eroding student privacy. Listen in to this important conversation about privacy in schools, for students and teachers, the success so far of the "Educator Toolkit for Teacher and Student Privacy," and much more, with AFT President, Randi Weingarten.

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more big data analytics are used, and more artificial intelligence systems are deployed, cybersecurity and privacy risks grow exponentially. Rebecca has spent her entire career working to improve information security and privacy protections, by not only raising awareness of the issues within businesses and other types of organizations, but also by raising the awareness of these risks in the public and helping them to understand how to better protect their own personal data, allowing them to take their privacy protections into their own hands. Rebecca offers you information about these existing and emerging security and privacy risks and provides fresh insights into the impacts of exploiting these risks, and gives guidance, tips, expert advice, news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
