Online Privacy and Security

Have you been talking to your student about Online Privacy and Security?

Students need to know how to protect personal information and gain a deeper understanding of their data privacy rights so they can advocate for themselves and others. Personal information is highly valuable and needs to be protected. It is the doorway to private and financial information both now and in the future.  You can support your students in understanding Online Privacy and Security in a variety of ways.
