Protecting school communities  from data exploitation

Protecting school communities from data exploitation

The changing nature of technology in schools has caused an imbalance between the benefit of technology to support learning, and the potential for exploitation of children’s data at detriment to their rights of privacy, freedom of thought, and health. Added to this, risk of cyber intrusion in schools is leading to data exfiltration, placing schools in the cross hairs of ransomware and other threats.

Together with the development and expansion of privacy laws around the world there is a need for a platform for schools to demonstrate compliance, evidence a risk based approach to privacy management, respond to security incidents such as cyber attack; whilst protecting children from harm and data exploitation.
That platform is the 9ine Privacy App.
