The importance of teaching online privacy at the college

I really like the closing paragraph here! I might replace "The College" with "The College Library" :-) http://flathatnews.com/2016/04/04/the-importance-of-teaching-online-privacy-at-the-college/
If the College’s mission truly is to mold us into informed citizens and consumers, an excellent place for it to start would be with this issue of data security and online privacy. Even a brief session during orientation would be an improvement; if not to teach us how to be fully secure in our data, then simply to let us know that it is not, by itself, fully secure. An even better option, as suggested by Tracy Mitrano — an academic dean at the University of Massachusetts Cybersecurity Certificate Programs — would be a GER course in information literacy. Only then could the College say it produces truly informed citizens.
