Privacy of Personal Information: Compliance for Independent Schools

Date: March 5 Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Cost: This event is being offered as a free education session.


Privacy is the newest frontier in cybersecurity. Unlike previous security laws, which apply to a relatively smaller pool of personally identifiable information or PII (e.g. Social Security, governmental identification, and financial account numbers), privacy laws encompass an expansive scope of personal information. These laws govern any information that either identifies or is identifiable to an individual. Even just an individual’s name, email or physical address are personal information governed by privacy laws.

So the question becomes, what are schools to do? In this engaging session, attorneys Brian Garrett and Cameron Shilling will guide independent school leaders on understanding and interpreting the growing number of comprehensive privacy laws that apply to schools and their community members.
