CDT is releasing an issue brief that offers recommendations and best practices for the education sector in retaining data that can serve students and deleting information that is no longer needed. The report explains that data deletion is not a simple task, and that it requires an analysis of policy, legal, and technical requirements.
CDT is excited to welcome Elizabeth Laird as Senior Fellow to lead its Student Privacy Project. Elizabeth will help expand CDT’s efforts on student privacy, working to advance strong privacy practices and policies that protect the rights of students and families. The Student Privacy Project will leverage CDT’s existing expertise on privacy and data issues, with an initial focus on digital decision-making and data portability, deletion, and integration.
