Data Privacy Day

Posted By Administration, Monday, January 29, 2018

SDPCData Privacy Day

Since 2008, January 28th is touted as “Data Privacy Day” in the U.S. led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NSCA).  While this larger effort focuses mostly on consumer information privacy, the Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community, and its Special Interest Group (SIG) the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) are addressing the real world challenges seen by educational data stewards each day in schools across the globe.  So today is a day to celebrate the substantial SDPC successes and recognize there is so much more work to be done!

In 2015 the non-profit SDPC was established to address “tactical” and “on the ground” privacy practitioner needs.  Formed after a year of research, outreach surveys, and one-on-one conversations, the SDPC is made up of schools, regional and state education agencies and marketplace providers identifying common privacy issues and developing solutions that can be put in place at all levels of the education data continuum.

The Consortium polled members to identify their current “pain points” to prioritize the work resulting in three projects currently underway addressing a) contract privacy wording, b) privacy policies and procedures development and c) a secure and simplified application onboarding into a schools digital ecosystem.

Check out the great work of this all volunteer group and how their work can be leveraged by you as a school, regional/state agency or marketplace provider who wants to support the effective and safe management of student data.  Over 4 million students are currently represented in the Consortium – why not yours and your clients?
