Your Data – Your Concern: the 11th edition of the program has started
The online meeting for participants of the 11th edition of the nationwide educational program "Your Data – Your Concern" opens a series of events organized in connection with the implementation of the UODO’s program in the 2020/2021 school year.
The two-day event, which takes place in Warsaw on October 15-16, 2020, is addressed to coordinators from schools and educational institutions that have applied for participation in the 11th edition of the program. This school year, more than 350 schools have joined the program.
ABC of the processing of personal data at school
The event is an opportunity to present the legal grounds for the processing of personal data, with particular emphasis on the provisions relating to the educational sector and problems reported by school Data Protection Officers.
The first day of the seminar will be devoted to explaining the key issues related to the secure processing of personal data, especially with regard to the use of new technologies by schools and the need to protect digital identity. Moreover, the program of the meeting also provides for the introduction to the heads of educational institutions and teachers the key issues related to personal data breaches reported by schools. UODO’s experts will also present international activities undertaken by educational institutions, which contribute to raising the awareness of teachers and students about data protection and the right to privacy.
On the second day of the training, workshops will be held, during which specific projects implemented by educational institutions during the last year's edition of the program will be presented.
About the UODO’s educational program
The aim of the UODO’s educational program is to raise awareness of the protection of personal data and the right to privacy – among teachers and students. For many years, the UODO’s program has been an inspiration for teachers, students and parents who, by taking part in it, show how from an early age you can teach children the principles of personal data protection by conveying difficult content during lessons, talks and using games and play.
