The education sector is invaluable for the knowledge it provides. But to data thieves, schools, colleges and universities are also invaluable for the confidential information that is stored, on-site and online.
From pupil and employee records, to financial documents, old computers and disused hard drives, schools, colleges and universities are warehouses of sensitive information and data that needs to be protected.
Since the introduction of GDPR, how institutions collect, store and destroy data is only going to come under increased scrutiny.
Schools, colleges, and universities possess thousands of records of personal information – whether it’s confidential data on students, employees, or financial records. How your information is collected, stored, handled and destroyed can make-or-break your institution’s reputation.
But in an industry that is entrusted with the responsibility to protect its pupils, the reality is that many information breaches occur because of employee error, negligence or poor judgement.
You may be doing everything you can, but one employee accidentally placing a school report into the recycling can undo everything. So, with a quarter of risk stemming from inside your organisation, you need to ensure your employees know how to confidently identify, handle and securely dispose of confidential information.
