Webinar Overview
The GeoConnections Program invites you to learn about and discuss emerging issues in geospatial privacy and how these issues can be handled. GeoConnections has conducted a number of studies and supported the development of guidelines related to geospatial privacy. This webinar session will introduce Geospatial Privacy Awareness and Risk Management – Guide for Federal Agencies, a March 2010 guideline that was created to be widely applicable to not only the federal public sector but other levels of government, the private sector, the academic sector, non-governmental organizations, and the general public. In addition, you will learn about other recent GeoConnections work on this topic, including:
