Teachers and other educators in the K-12 environment work in close proximity to student data that is considered private and needs to be protected. In this session, Ryan Cloutier, Principal Security Architect, Sourcewell Technology, will review key concepts about data privacy that educators need to understand. Topics will include what data is considered private, what are the best practices for protecting it, how to safely share student data with colleagues, and what laws apply. This is important information for every educator. No one wants to be the person in the school who accidentally causes a data breach or inappropriately shares student information.
