Effective Management of Information Security and Data Privacy in K–12

Special guest Rod Russeau is somewhat of an expert in the changing data privacy regulatory environment: His state and a handful of others have new laws requiring district IT leaders to significantly step up oversight of student data protections, by district systems and by ed tech providers. With concerns about student data privacy being discussed in legislatures across the nation and at the federal level, could the new role of “student data privacy policing” now assigned to K-12 IT leadership in a handful of states be a harbinger of what’s to come nationally? What should IT leaders be mindful of now, and what should they be prepared for in the near future as policymakers consider more regulations to protect student data privacy?

Presenter: Rod Russeau, CETL, CISM, CISSP, CDPSE, Director of Technology & Information Services, Community District 99, Illinois, and Chairperson of the CoSN Cybersecurity Initiative.
