Privacy To Be Required Course
PRIVACY—GERMANYApril 30, 2010
Students enrolled in Christian-Albrechts-University's information management program will now be required to take a course on data privacy. The university has signed an agreement to cooperate with Schleswig-Holstein's Independent Center for Privacy Protection (ULD), whose employees will teach the course. "The aim of the cooperation is to improve, in an increasingly connected world, data protection and security," the university's chancellor said. Thilo Weichert, head of the ULD, said, "Schleswig-Holstein can maintain its leading position in data protection only if the issue is an integral part of computer science education."
