Webinar | Privacy 101: How to Pursue Privacy by Design

Data privacy is everyone’s job. Higher education institutions collect, store, use, transmit, disclose, and dispose of a wide variety of data every day. Concerns about ethics, privacy, and data protection have risen in conjunction with the emergence of new technologies, the vast amounts (and variety) of data at play in the higher education environment, and how those data are being used. In this session, data and privacy leaders will share strategies for moving their institutions toward privacy by design. This session is aligned with the 2023 EDUCAUSE Showcase Series and the 2023 Top 10 IT Issues.


  • Hear institutions’ exemplars for creating privacy by design
  • Learn from leaders in privacy and data about how to collaborate across the institution
  • Explore best practices for data ethics
