Beyond the Privacy Act of 1974 - providing limited protection of citizen privacy interests vis-a-vis records held by the federal government -- very little is know generally about the privacy rights of individuals and the multitude of risks existing today and poised for tomorrow. The media reports daily of threats to personal privacy by business, the media or government -- often aided by the Internet specifically or technology in general.
This seminar will provide a thoughtful, engaging overview of this conflict and seek to answer timely questions, including:
* What does the Privacy Act of 1974 protect and what does it permit in the way of collection?
* What of dissemination? What are the regulations on "routine uses"?
* What legislative developments are present (or on the horizon)?
If you are an information professional interested in more fully understanding your privacy rights, or the privacy law obligations of your employer, then this seminar is for you. Whether you are employed in the private or government sector, you need to be aware of your obligations and liabilities. Join us for this comprehensive look at privacy law, practice and policy today!
