Find out what IU is doing to enhance your privacy.
Jan. 28 is International Privacy Day, a good time to reflect on 2020 worldwide privacy-related events and to recognize what IU is doing to protect your privacy in 2021 and beyond.
In 2020, several U.S. states and countries passed laws imposing disclosure of personal data collection, identification of third-party sharing arrangements, and requiring explanations for algorithmic personal information predictions. Also, in Europe, controversy continued over data transfers to the U.S., especially regarding data access by national security agencies.
At IU in 2020, we launched our first comprehensive Privacy Portal, offering guidance on student, health, financial, and research privacy and providing resources on where to go for questions or further information. This year, IU’s privacy team is reviewing and streamlining more than 1,000 web-based privacy notices. The goal is to increase your awareness of privacy topics like third-party data sharing and machine-based analysis.
