National Privacy Conference 2024

Purpose of the National Privacy Conference and the Dutch Privacy Awards is to jointly build a privacy-friendly information society with business, government and science. The overarching theme of the National Privacy Conference this time is Education & Privacy. The conference will take place at the Glazen Zaal in The Hague.

Nowadays, almost everything in education happens digitally. Teaching materials are offered digitally, digital testing programmes are used, pupils' developments are listed in a pupil monitoring system and communication is digital. Excessive data collection and data misuse lurk in the process. To provide a safe and reliable learning environment, educational institutions are responsible for handling the data they process carefully and securely. This is particularly important because education also processes data of minors who are especially vulnerable.

Do educational institutions adequately address the importance of data protection and data minimisation? What are the risks of Big Tech and AI in education? Are there privacy-friendly alternatives? How can privacy in education be better ensured?

These and other issues are discussed by... José van Dijck (Professor of Media and Digital Society, Utrecht University), Larissa Zegveld (director-director Kennisnet Foundation), Sabrina van Miltenburg (Digital Safe Education programme manager, Kennisnet Foundation), Sjoera Nas (senior privacy expert, Privacy Company) and Katja Mur (board member Personal Data Authority), all led by chairman of the day Tom Jessen.
