Webinar Description

While data breaches are starting to become an accepted part of life, the public is not willing to accept breaches involving minors’ personal information. In particular, recent breaches at educational publisher Pearson and other vendors have put a priority on keeping student personal information secure. Illinois has taken the lead in privacy law by adopting the Student Online Personal Protection Act (“SOPPA”) to protect student personal information.  SOPPA is a unique privacy law in that compliance is mandatory and it places a number of objective requirements on public and private schools. This law requires Illinois schools to monitor the security measures taken by third parties entrusted with student data. This engaging presentation will address the requirements under SOPPA, including the July 1, 2021 compliance deadline.
