Securing Your Education Data in the Cloud

It’s no surprise that you have concerns about the privacy and security of sensitive data in the cloud. In 2019, there was more data stolen than ever before, with a total of 7.9 billion records compromised. The sheer amount of data circulating within and around educational institutions is on the rise. Without the right privacy controls, data security policies, and technology in place, your data is at risk of being breached.

  • 35% of data breaches within the education sector are due to a miscellaneous error, such as accidentally sending an email containing sensitive information to unintended recipients.
  • In 2019 alone, the education sector experienced 382 breaches.

Balancing Data Privacy with Secure Access

  • Digital learning initiatives are becoming increasingly prevalent, creating even more data as students log in to devices from outside the physical classroom.
  • School staff and administrators must protect student privacy in compliance with FERPA, PPRA, HIPAA, and other regulations.

This level of security, privacy, and accessibility requires the implementation of new digital workflows and cloud-based infrastructures.
