    Why Data Privacy Day?

    Privacy is important year-round, but this event is observed internationally each year on January 28th to promote awareness about the many ways personal information is collected, stored, used, and shared.

    It is also a good reminder at the beginning of each new year to learn more about privacy and how to protect your data as well as that of others. The Information Security Group (ISG) has prepared a page of videos, online events (January 25th and 26th) and other resources to assist you.

    Want to help Brown stay green over winter break? Here are some tips.

    As we all leave for the holidays, many of Brown’s buildings will be empty. Even if buildings are not occupied, they can still use and waste a lot of electricity.

    Climate Action League (a student group dedicated to sustainable initiatives on campus), in collaboration with CIS, has made this list of easy steps to make sure your building saves energy while you are home for the holidays!
