2014 Information Privacy Institute
The University of Maine School of Law in association with the International Association of Privacy Professionals present the Information Privacy Institute. Beginning May 27, the Institute features three two-credit courses in privacy law. Courses will be held on consecutive weeks, beginning May 27. Two courses will be held in Portland, Maine and one course will be held in Portsmouth, NH.
In Global Privacy Law students will be taught how to critically analyze privacy problems and make observations about sources of law and their interpretation, with an emphasis on the global nature of data. Students will be provided with the technological details needed to explore information security and management issues in domestic and international contexts. Advanced Privacy in Practice will provide students with practical exposure to data privacy, security and management issues that arise within the enterprise. It will offer problem-based exercises that track subjects explored in the Global Privacy Law course. Privacy and the Federal Trade Commission will explore the FTC's privacy jurisprudence in depth. Students will gain an understanding of specific practices that the FTC considers unfair and deceptive. Students will also explore the policy considerations inherent the in the FTC's role as a de facto privacy regulator.
Students and professionals enrolled in the Summer Institute will have a chance to sit for the IAPP's Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) exam at the conclusion of the program.
