Data protection starts with each member of your institution/organization, from students to presidents and from academic service partners to institutional support providers. Institutions collect data on students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors to help create strategies to best serve the institution’s community. Innovative technology is emerging rapidly.  Institutions must ensure that their best practices and infrastructure keeps up with these technological advancements to prevent data insecurity.

This is not just an IT problem! All members of an academic community must be trained with data protection best practices to preserve the security of the institution.

The resources here will help all members of your institutions/organizations to understand their role in the development of data protection and privacy.
