First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Keeping It Private: Navigating the Balance of Public Data and Privacy Protections. December 5, 2017, 9:00 AM PACIFIC
Washington State is very open with the way it shares data within the public trust. Our state has one of the most advanced public records laws in the nation and most public meetings are subject to the Open Meetings Act. At the same time, citizens have a right to privacy under the state's Constitution. On the private side, hackers are stalking personal data and data brokers are collecting and selling it. You may be putting your privacy at risk simply by leaving your phone unlocked or by sharing personal information with an organization that then makes it publicly available. Presented by Will Saunders and Alex Alben, Office of Privacy & Data Protection
