Keeping student and employee information safe
Education institutions across the country produce large amounts of documents containing sensitive information. A lot of this information has been transferred to digital assets, but this does not fully protect your institution from identity theft. This sensitive information might be employee applications, report cards, student contact information and other pieces of information.
All education institutions; including, high schools, colleges and universities, all the way down to elementary schools are regulated by state and federal laws in protecting this confidential information.
Protecting your students and employee’s confidential information is critical for your school.
