Subject: "Educator Privacy Training"
To All Educators & Parents:
As Attorney General ofUtah, I have a duty to actively promote online safety and the well-being of youth. Education is
being greatly enhanced by technology in the classroom and at home. As digital learning expands in our schools, we must
be all the more vigilant in protecting student information. Currently, the education sector is found to be the most
vulnerable to ransomware attacks and data misuse among a number of critical industries.
Educators should be empowered to understand and be equipped to fulfill their responsibilities when it comes to data
protection. Their attention to the issue of privacy will greatly impact our ability to secure the identity and safety of all our
children . This requires that all educators receive training to insure they are actively defending student data. Parents have
the right to be assured that their child's privacy is protected.
Among many tools and programs my team and I have seen to enhance digital security, the "Educators Privacy Training
Course," created by privacy experts at the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe.org), is an effective tool to help
schools comply with Utah law. It is a free, downloadable resource on their website-giving essential skills to teachers to
navigate their classroom's educational technology safely and successfully .
The course includes videos, a facilitator guide and effective educator resources which are highly recommended. This
instruction identifies misuse of data and demonstrates how Personally Identifiable Information (PPI) can be protected.

Together we can keep our children's privacy protected.
