Social Media Privacy Expert John Sileo Headlines Tri-State Business Affairs Conference
NEW PALTZ, N.Y., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — John Sileo, leading social media privacy expert and keynote speaker, will present on the impact of social media and the internet on modern educational environments during the Tri-State Business Affairs Conference on Thursday, May 2 in New Paltz, New York.
Social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube can be valuable resources for educators, but only if they are used properly. When codes of conduct governing proper internet use are not established by staff and administrators or properly followed by students, the quality of the learning environment could suffer.
Mr. Sileo will highlight the steps schools can take to transform students and staff into astute digital citizens, from hosting social media training sessions to creating proper BYOD policies.
“School districts are taking a very strategic approach to training their students on sound online privacy habits, good social networking and proper data security,” Mr. Sileo said. “If corporations only paid this much attention to fraud training and social media education, they would radically reduce the billions they lose to data breach and social media liability lawsuits every year.”
Mr. Sileo’s two presentations during the three-day conference, sponsored by the state associations of independent schools for Connecticut (CAIS), New Jersey (NJAIS) and New York (NYSAIS), will show attendees best practices for ensuring online privacy in schools.
The first speech, “Spies, Hackers & Online Attackers Bulletproofing School Privacy in the Surveillance Economy,” will explore current data privacy threats, the risks they pose to the digital footprints of students and staff and how school districts can become more cyber-savvy.
Mr. Sileo’s second speech is a breakout session, “Harnessing Social Media Without Sacrificing Security,” which will show proven strategies schools can deploy to educate their students to be good digital citizens, including online privacy, safe sharing and social networking practices, anti-cyber bullying and student data security.
