Data Privacy Day Event - Brown University

In the run-up to International Data Privacy Day on January 28th, we'll be posting information on events that may be of interest.   Our friends at Brown University have sent this invitation:

You are cordially invited to attend a free Information Security Group colloquium in celebration of National Data Privacy Day at Brown University on Monday January 28, 2013 from 1-4 PM.

"Perspectives on Privacy: Rights, the Law and the University" is a timely session focused on the issue of personal privacy as well as organizational confidentiality. We welcome three speakers who will offer different perspectives on privacy: as a basic human right, the legal foundations protecting privacy, and managing information confidentially in a university setting.  The event is being held on Data Privacy Day, a world-wide observance occurring on January 28th each year since 2008. It also caps a month long effort to raise awareness about data privacy at Brown, which includes online presentations, in-person awareness classes, and daily tips via twitter.

Everyone is welcome.  Feel free to share this with those who may be interested.  Light refreshments will be served, and all attendees will be entered to win a Brown Bookstore gift certificate.

Thanks to David Sherry, Chief Information Security Officer, for passing this along!
