Data breaches are incidents in which sensitive information is exposed, either willingly or by accident, to dangerous actors. In this simulation, the following four players role-play key people connected to the breach:

  • Kim Wright – Public School Program Advisor, ADE
  • Melanie Birthright - Educational Vision Consultant/Orientation & Mobility Specialist, Southwest Arkansas Education Cooperative
  • Steven Walker - Digital Learning Support Specialist, Team Digital
  • Thomas Coy – Public School Program Advisor, ADE

Ray Girdler, Director of Data Use & Privacy at ADE, is the host and their guide through the chain of events. To illustrate the unpredictable nature of data breaches, none of the players knew beforehand how the events would play out and what you’re about to watch are their responses and reactions in real time.
