  • Announcements
    • Working on a panel for next time on content flow, hopefully for next month
    • Results of survey
      • Strong preference for Web Council meetings to be Thursday mornings, 90 min long
      • Many requested a social event
  • Privacy Policy Almost Ready
    • Ann Nagel, Associate Chief Information Security Officer
    • UW's current Privacy Policy is out of date
      • People were writing their own privacy policies
        • Recent search found 400 different privacy statements
          • Some not clear
          • Some make promises we cannot keep
    • Sponsors of project to update privacy policy
      • Kirk Bailey, Chief Information Security Officer
      • Johnese Spisso, VP Medical Affairs
        • UW Privacy Official
    • Subcommittee of the Privacy Assurance and Systems Security (PASS) Council was formed
    • Approach - Write a privacy policy that applies to all areas of the UW
      • What is Personally Identifiable Information (PII)?
        • Individuals name, in combination with any other piece of information that is required to be protected by law
    • Key ideas
      • Supersedes the UW Electronic Information Privacy Policy on Personally Identifiable Information
      • Outlines how the UW protects privacy of institutional information in any form
        • If you are sharing information with any outside party, important to have a policy, including processes to follow if privacy breeched
    • Identifies information and privacy laws and regulations that place a duty upon the UW
      • Many laws that people think do apply actually do not apply to UW
      • Specific laws do apply
        • Identify subject matter experts (SME) for infomation security and privacy laws and regulations
        • Each SME is required to have a Web site that explains how that law applies to the UW
    • Making the new privacy policy available
      • Will soon roll out a new "footer" for the main UW pages with links to the following documents:
        • UW Web Site terms and conditions of use
        • UW Online Privacy statement
      • UW web pages will be required to link to UW Web Site Terms and Conditions of Use and UW Online Privacy Statement
    • Restrictions may be needed on sending unsolicited emails that ask people to enter PII
      • If an email requests confidential information, needs to be done carefully
        • We need better controls around how we do this
        • The character of the relationship between the sending organization and the recipient is what determines whether the message is acceptable
          • If you have an active existing relationship with the person, generally OK
          • The more tenuous the relationship, the more care should be taken
      • Applies if message has a link that requires entering personal information
    • Communication plan
      • Doing more outreach to let people know that they can start pointing to the central documents
    • Policy implementation process
      • How to reach goals - leave it open ended or require dropdead date?
        • The decision for now is to leave it open, realizing there are a lot of pages out there
      • What will Internal Audit do?
        • IA has said they may point out the need to connect to the privacy policy documents, but understand that making changes takes time
    • Policy is 95% complete, very close to having it signed off
    • Some units may feel the standard does not meet their needs. In that case, should work through their executive management and send suggested changes or additions to Kirk Bailey, CISO
      • There is a mechanism to modify the documents, we just want to be thoughtful in how we do it
    • If you have questions, you can send questions to CISO office - ciso@uw.edu
