Will you be targeted with fake news in the 2020 election campaign? Inappropriate use of personal data demonstrates that privacy is the new security. Innovations in technology, low-cost storage and processing, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things — all these are driving the “data age.” They represent a few of the reasons why students need to understand that their personal data has tremendous value and needs to be protected just like any other valuable asset. The right to privacy is becoming one of the hottest topics around the globe, and governments are trying to put controls in place to protect consumers. Europe legislated in 2018 and the California Consumer Privacy Act is due to take effect in 2020. Are we truly aware of the consequences of personal information being collected? We will discuss this from a professional perspective — as well as my personal experience of being part of a data breach — and we will examine some of the considerations and protections we should all take when granting access to our personal information.
