Whew, sorry for the lack of posts. Besides my usual gap, I had a password snafu, but now I'm back in business without having to start anew. Yea...
Several topics to post--
First, another blotter... Welcome, Portland, Oregon, to the list:
Next, I want to throw out a question that readers of this blog might be able to help answer: Do you know where/how the term "privacy
policy" was coined originally? It's not in the standard privacy/data protection doctrines. And as best as I and another colleague (Mike Nelson) can tell it was coined in the '90's.
A phrase like "personal data policy" - or "data policy" for short - would be a more appropriate label (or "personal information policy").
Finally, there are 2 great articles (via dear old Dad, aka Mr. Clemson) in The Chronicle of Higher Education, which are not new but very interesting:
1 - "When Is a College Like a Bank?" -- I did not realize that the FTC was treating campuses like banks as far as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act is concerned.
2 - "Colleges Face Rising Costs for Computer Security" -- Includes some nice survey statistics from universities.
