Brown Bag movie screening highlights online privacy
Every day you download apps or visit websites that ask you to click something saying you “agree to the terms and conditions.” What does that mean? Come join Ethics, Compliance and Audit Services for a 2015 Data Privacy Month screening of Terms and Conditions May Apply on February 23 to find out. The entertaining film explores the erosion of online privacy and educates people about what information governments and corporations legally take from citizens. Learn about how the information you share with Google, Amazon, Facebook and others can be used and about how you can safeguard your privacy online.
The University of California is one of the first universities to prioritize and institutionalize both the legal compliance requirements and social values associated with privacy. UC values autonomy privacy, or the ability of individuals to conduct activities without observation, and information privacy, or protecting information about people. The university also focuses on strong information security practices to protect information it holds. Terms and Conditions May Apply will help UCOP employees understand what small actions they can take to play an active role in safeguarding their personal and professional privacy online.
The Brown Bag event will take place from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Franklin 5320. Snacks, drinks, and informational resources will be provided. For more information, contact the Systemwide Privacy Manager, Roslyn Martorano at Roslyn.Martorano@ucop.edu or (510) 987-0564.
