The birth of an online module about privacy - Schoutsen & van Putten

  1. 1. Privacy – the birth of an online module
  2. 2. Question 1 Which group is the most frequent victim of cybercrime? 1. Elderly people 2. Highly educated young people 3. Low-educated young people
  3. 3. Question 2 Is the Wi-Fi on the train trustworthy? 1. Yes, it is usually safe. 2. The internet on the train is not safe, so it is better to work on the train via a VPN connection. 2.
  4. 4. Question 3 Is the university responsible for the data you collected for your thesis and saved on your USB flash drive? 1. Of course not; that would be crazy! As a student, you are responsible for your own USB flash drives 2. Of course, the university can be held responsible for any sensitive data on students’ USB flash drives that are left lying about
  5. 5. Question 4 Is it dangerous to send your bank account number to someone via WhatsApp? 1. No, because WhatsApp has end-to-end encryption. 2. Cybercriminals can’t do anything with your account number anyway, so it’s no problem to send it over WhatsApp 3. You should never share your bank account number, especially not on social media. 2.
  6. 6. Question 5 Do you use your university email address? 1. No, I use my regular email address (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail) whenever I can. 2. Yes, I have forwarded my university email to my regular email address (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail). 3. Yes of course! 2.
  7. 7. Why is privacy suddenly such an important issue?
  8. 8. Big Fines Data Leaking
  9. 9. How big? • a warning in writing in cases of first and non-intentional non-compliance • regular data protection audits • a fine up to 10,000,000 EUR • a fine up to 20,000,000 EUR
  10. 10. All data?
  11. 11. Do we have confidential information at our universities? • Personal information of students and employees (name, address, bankaccount, password) • Research data on persons and companies (e.g. interviews, medical data, inside information on companies!)
  12. 12. What do we want to teach the students? • Not to share their (confidentional) documents on dropbox/google drive • Not to use gmail, but (the protected) mailservice of the university • To encrypt their laptops, USB flash drive and documents
  13. 13. Why libraries? ACRL Framework
  14. 14. Information Has Value • give credit to the original ideas of others through proper attribution and citation; • understand that intellectual property is a legal and social construct that varies by culture; • articulate the purpose and distinguishing characteristics of copyright, fair use, open access, and the public domain; • understand how and why some individuals or groups of individuals may be underrepresented or systematically marginalized within the systems that produce and disseminate information; • recognize issues of access or lack of access to information sources; • decide where and how their information is published; • understand how the commodification of their personal information and online interactions affects the information they receive and the information they produce or disseminate online; • make informed choices regarding their online actions in full awareness of issues related to privacy and the commodification of personal information.
  15. 15. So we have to teach the students to… • make informed choices regarding their online actions • in full awareness of issues related to privacy • and the commodification of personal information. >> be a percipient producer of information

  17. 17. Most important lesson:
  18. 18. There it is…..
  19. 19. And they lived happily ever after…? (university) library privacy
  20. 20. Discussion Is privacy awareness a task of the library? Should it be a compulsory element of academic skills / media literacy courses? How far do we (libraries) have to go in teaching students / the public about privacy?
