IAPP VP of Research and Education Omer Tene recently examined the demise of inBloom for Privacy Perspectives, and today, George Washington University Law School’s John Marshall Harlan Research Professor of Law Dan Solove writes for LinkedIn that the company’s death knell should serve as “a loud wakeup call” for companies that are not taking privacy seriously. He writes that “inBloom didn't die because it was mistakenly singled out for attack. It died because of a more fundamental problem with education privacy. The problem is that education privacy is lagging so far behind other industries and is so poorly regulated and addressed.”
