Privacy and Security Challenges for Distance Learning

Michelle Hon Donovan

The rapid transition to distance education has created a litany of new privacy and information security concerns. Schools had to move quickly to implement distance-learning apps and online tools from technology companies that historically have not targeted the highly regulated education sector.

This technology and new remote learning methods have redefined what constitutes a student record and significantly increased third party access to these records.

At the same time, cyber criminals are taking advantage of the additional vulnerabilities associated with working remote with cyberattacks increasing by 400% during the pandemic. The risk to student data has never been greater.

While schools are starting to open back up, many schools are maintaining distance education programs going forward. This program will discuss the privacy and security implications and challenges of these distance learning programs.
