Data Privacy Day Event / Data Privacy Month Online

Perspectives on Privacy: Rights, the Law & the University

While it’s always a good time to think about privacy, ISG joins others around the globe recognizing Data Privacy Day on January 28th in an effort to empower people to protect their privacy, control their digital footprint, and escalate the protection of privacy and data as everyone’s priority.

This year, ISG has planned a timely colloquium focused on the issue of personal privacy as well as organizational confidentiality entitled Perspectives on Privacy: Rights, the Law & the University.

The event will feature talks by privacy expert and local author Robert Ellis Smith, RISD’s General Counsel Steve McDonald, Brown’s Chief Information Security Officer, David Sherry, plus time for Q&A with a panel of our speakers. The colloquium takes place on January 28th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Pembroke Hall.

We invite you to reserve a space as seating will be limited and it will also let us plan resources for the event. However, registration is not required and drop-ins are welcome.

Data Privacy MonthIf you are unable to join us on the 28th, we offer other events throughout January. In conjunction with EDUCAUSE’s Data Privacy Month, we invite you to tune into one or more upcoming webinars. Topic, speaker and connection details can be found at

ISG will also offer the Protecting Brown Information class on January 16th, detailed elsewhere in this edition.
