This past summer, the US Supreme Court made a landmark decision in the Dobbs v Jackson case, which gave states, not the federal government, the authority to regulate abortion. The Dobbs decision overturned Roe v Wade, a ruling based on an individual’s inherent right to privacy. Other important legislation followed Row arguing for and securing the right to privacy. In undoing Roe, Dobbs has created a fluctuating, patchwork of new laws, regulations, and privacy concerns across the US. As the shepherds and protectors of student data, information security professionals need to understand how this shifting landscape affects our organizations, students, staff, and security practices. The panel will explore the new post-Dobbs privacy paradigm, its implications, and its impact on data privacy and security. A portion of the session will be available for attendees to ask questions.
