OIT Lunch and Learn series will present “Protecting Data and Privacy in Higher Education” from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28 in 216 Scott Hall. Higher Education is an open and collaborative environment that requires access to information by a large constituency of interested parties, including faculty, staff, students, guest lecturers, conference attendees, and parents.
Tim Gurganus of OIT Security will present ways to keep computer information private when required, and ways to control data that needs to be shared. Topics will include data encryption, privacy on social networks, as well as secure communications and security settings in Firefox and Internet Explorer.
