Conducting a Privacy Audit

Wednesday, January 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Register above to apply for a seat in this 90-minute webinar by noon 1/10/22.

If the crises and disasters of this past year have taught us anything, it’s that libraries change according to circumstance. Data is a critical component to successfully adapting to those changes. How much data you collect and how you use it as your organization changes can quickly and easily undermine privacy—a core value of libraries and the seventh article in the ALA’s Library Bill of Rights.

How can your library continue to evolve without sacrificing privacy? With a privacy audit. This interactive workshop will help you get started on a privacy audit in your library. Don’t worry if you don’t have the ability to do a privacy audit yourself. We’ll also include things you can do to advocate for getting a privacy audit done at your library.

At the end of this interactive workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Explain what a privacy audit is and why it is important to perform at a library.
  • Identify areas in their library that should be audited.
  • Use a set of core questions to audit various areas of the library that interact with user data.
  • Use ALA’s Privacy Guidelines and Checklists effectively.
  • Tell the library’s audit story.

CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
