While knowledge might be education’s most valuable asset, today most of the knowledge is stored electronically in either report form, articles, thesis, research documents and general reference services, often web-based for ease of access too by both teaching staff as well as students and pupils. Cybersecurity in the Education Sector is an important consideration for digital security for schools.
To make protecting this data even harder is the multitude of formats it is created in as well as the range of platforms it is stored on such as the latest high-end multi-core servers down to low budget PC’s acting as a server!
Our experience demonstrates that linking encryption with access control enables our clients in this sector to control where data is stored, how it should be handled and allows tracking and marking so data can be easily classified and alerted on, should a user take inappropriate actions on data such as copying, reading or deleting it.
At Digital Pathways, we have a range of solutions that can provide you with controls to data without breaking any of your organisation’s processes or introducing complex technical procedures that may hamper your service delivery.
