Information Privacy


Data privacy law in the US is piecemeal; a number of different laws regulate the dissemination of information to third parties.  Some laws govern information about children, some about health information, some about financial records, some about personally identifying information.  These laws are enacted in organizational policies and in eventually encoded in software.  This course will examine the legal, social, and policy issues surrounding information privacy.

Offered in fall.
