PPSA Meeting: November 12

Identity theft has become one of the fastest growing crimes in this country. Most of us have either personally been a victim or know someone who has experienced it. As an employer, the University is greatly concerned about the security of the faculty's, staff's and students' personal information. There are steps we all can take to minimize the risk of becoming a victim. Join the Penn Professional Staff Assembly on November 12 when Lauren Steinfeld, Chief Privacy Officer with the Office of Audit and Compliance (Almanac February 26, 2002), presents Privacy at Penn. Her presentation will discuss protecting personal privacy as well as adopting a proactive approach to enhancing protection for students, faculty, staff and others in the community. By attending this lunchtime session you will get the necessary information to understand privacy issues and how they relate to you in your personal and professional life.

PPSA's Board looks forward to seeing you at noon, November 12 in Logan Hall's Terrace Room.
