NDSU Information Technology promotes Data Privacy Month
Learn how to control, protect and keep private personal data during January, which is Data Privacy Month.
Data Privacy Month was created to empower and engage people to protect their privacy and manage their digital online presence and information. This month, NDSU’s Information Technology’s security office will offer online materials and presentations to raise awareness on ways personal information is collected, stored, used and shared; and what precautions individuals as owners of the data can use to protect it.
To kick off the month’s events, the Information Technology security office has posted information on www.ndsu.edu/its/security. The site provides a listing of events sponsored by NDSU and EDUCAUSE. Daily tips and advice also will be posted on the NDSU IT Security Facebook page, which is accessible through the Information Technology security website.
For more information on Data Privacy Month, contact Theresa Semmens, Chief IT security officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 701-231-5870.
