CHICAGO—ALA Publishing eLearning Solutions announces an exciting new workshop, Data Privacy: Protecting Your Library, Yourself, and Your Patrons with Nicole Hennig. This workshop will last 90 minutes and take place at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30pm Central/12:30pm Mountain/11:30am Pacific on Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

Maintaining patron privacy is a primary concern for libraries. With news overwhelmingly covering security and data breaches, you may be wondering what you can do to help keep your users data secure.

In this workshop, Nicole Hennig covers the best practices that your library can follow to ensure your staff and your library users’ data is as safe as possible. While there is no such thing as foolproof security and privacy, there are strategies and actions you can take to protect your data.
