Description of Chat:

Growing up in the age of the Internet, young people have a unique view of the issues related to personal data online.

Three students representing Meade Senior High School in Fort Meade in Maryland share their perspectives of the needs and challenges around the right to privacy in the digital age. Panelists Erin ('24), Scott ('23) and Danny ('22) discuss how cybersecurity education has provided them with foundational knowledge of how to manage personal data, as well as informed their opinions of how data should be used. Student attendees were welcomed to share their opinions with and ask questions to the panelists.

This Chat was presented via Nepris - now Pathful Connect.
