Student Data Privacy Tips
Given the ongoing work I have been doing in terms of advocating for better student data privacy protections, I’ve received a number of requests for tips on ways to better protect student data over the past few weeks – as remote learning has kicked in to overdrive – accompanied by parent frustration, inappropriate incidents in the virtual classroom, such as what happened in Loudoun County Virginia public schools this past week, etc.
I’ve also been asked a few times for a tip sheet on better enhancing student data privacy in conjunction with a few recent appearances on the local Fox 5 affiliate news station.
As such, I wanted to post this tip sheet for anyone who might find it useful: Online Student Privacy Tips
These tips are based not only upon my work specifically in the student data privacy field, but also pulled from work I’ve done in the law enforcement realm, working with undercover FBI and US Secret Service agents, as well as with analysts from my time as privacy office in the intelligence community.
I hope they’re helpful. And to the extent people have other helpful tips not on my tip list, I’d love to hear from you.
