A Date With Data Privacy, Security & Sensibility in Edtech

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 18:30
SF Edtech Meetup
San Francisco

K-12 cybersecurity mishaps and incidents dot the country. As we enter a new school year, with new digital tools and services, what have companies and districts learned about safeguarding sensitive information? How can buyers be savvier when reviewing privacy and security policies? (What questions do they neglect or don't know to ask?)

In an age where no security measures are foolproof, how can educators and entrepreneurs be good partners—and be ready to act when trouble hits the fan?

Panelists include:

• Emily Tabatabai (Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Counsel, Orrick)

• Kyleigh Nevis (Instructional Technology Coordinator, Oakland Unified School District)

• Lynzi Ziegenhagen (CEO, Schoolzilla)

• Mollie Carter (VP of Marketing and Adoption, Edmodo)

EdSurge Managing Editor, Tony Wan will facilitate the conversation. Light snacks and drinks will be provided, courtesy of Orrick.
