By | February 18, 2021

What are privacy officers talking about when they talk about privacy? And why is it important?The EDUCAUSE Exchange podcast focuses on these questions in a recent episode that examines how privacy issues have been a big part of the conversation as institutions have moved to more remote learning and remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The episode features two of U-M’s key thought leaders on privacy issues.

Sol Bermann, chief information security officer and executive director of information assurance starts to tease apart some of the various aspects of privacy, by having a bone to pick with the term data privacy. Svetla Sytch, assistant director of privacy and IT policy says that more important than defining privacy is keeping privacy in the conversation around people and processes within the institution.
