Privacy has become an increasing concern in higher education, prompting institutions to create leadership and operational roles dedicated to protecting privacy. But who should lead those positions? Do they belong with cybersecurity or should they be independent? Join these cybersecurity and privacy leaders as they discuss the pros and cons of separating or integrating cybersecurity and privacy, lessons learned in their journeys, and how to impact change at your own institution.
