This event will kick off with a panel discussion, but most of the day will be spent in smaller breakout discussion groups to foster interactivity and engagement. In addition to laying the foundation for privacy in the information management context, the goal of this conference is to break through the traditional silos of information or data "stewards," legal counsel, information technology, risk management and privacy officers.
The initial panel will focus on the privacy and information management problems in higher education and how they appear from a variety of perspectives. The discussion sessions will focus on how institutions of higher education can address problems involving online social media, the tension between openness and control via surveillance, network monitoring, data use restrictions, and how to understand the broad and sometimes vague rubric of "privacy." In other words, what privacy means to the missions of higher education.
