John Dvorak, Tim McGovern, Allison Dolan, Christina Williams
Wed Jan 30, 02-03:30pm, 56-114

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event

The disclosure of sensitive information can result in complex and expensive notification activities, identity theft, legal action, and a significant amount of bad press.

John Dvorak will moderate the session and describe what sensitive information is and why it needs to be protected. Tim McGovern of IS&T will be talking about the legal, policy and data security incident response process at MIT. He will briefly review the new Massachusetts law that governs data security breaches. Allison Dolan of IS&T will address the recently initiated program to look at how MIT is handling Personally Identifying Information, with an initial focus on Social Security Numbers. Christina Williams of the Office of Major Agreements will talk about a new Institute-wide model that will allow DLCs to accept credit card payments in a secure manner.
