ITaP to celebrate Data Privacy Day with panel, cybersecurity escape room
Do you know how many data points exist about you? Or where your data is? Or and who has access to it?
On Data Privacy Day, Tuesday, Jan. 28, users are encouraged to better understand data privacy and apply data privacy best practices to their daily lives. ITaP will host two events that emphasize those initiatives:
- “I’ve Been Hacked!” Cybersecurity Escape Room
Can you solve a cybersecurity mystery? A member of Purdue University has been hacked, and it's up to you to investigate. Form your team of 4-6 people and get to the bottom of just how it happened while also learning best practices to keep your private information safe. Registration required: https://purdue.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4IXv1FU0ztPBkm9?fbclid=IwAR0js3DksaCn7-mnWEymyD197G1YE2kB23Yl5kyYwnpgosMZxRo_Xo5tuM0
