Data Privacy: Protecting Your Library, Yourself, and Your Patrons Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30pm Central/12:30pm Mountain/11:30am Pacific
Maintaining patron privacy is a primary concern for libraries. With news overwhelmingly covering security and data breaches, you may be wondering what you can do to help keep your users data secure.
In this workshop, Nicole Hennig covers the best practices that your library can follow to ensure your staff and your library users’ data is as safe as possible. While there is no such thing as foolproof security and privacy, there are strategies and actions you can take to protect your data.
By participating in this workshop, you will learn
- The importance of password managers and how to use them
- What settings you should enable for your library's social media accounts
- What browsers to use on your public computers and strategies to ensure material accessed through library computers remains confidential
- What questions you should ask the vendors that you work with to ensure the security of their systems and your data
- What tools and handouts you should recommend and provide to your library users who are bringing in their own devices—laptops, phones, tablets to access your public wi-fi
- Resources you can offer your users to help them keep their data secure.
