In today’s virtual world, maintaining privacy in your business practices is essential. Integrating privacy practices into your day-to-day activities is far from easy, especially given the general confusion about what the concepts of “privacy” and “data privacy” actually represent.
This course is an introduction to privacy. Students will learn what “privacy” means in the context of both government and industry. Key federal statutes will be identified and discussed, several privacy frameworks will be examined, and privacy documentation such as Privacy Impact Assessments and System of Record Notices will be explained. Additionally, students will be able to determine the difference between IT security and privacy, will learn privacy best-practices, and will appreciate the true need for an enterprise-wide privacy program.
