Data Privacy & Protection

Build confidence in your privacy programme in partnership with 9ine’s global team of experts.

Trusted Support

Governance and management of personal data in schools requires depth and experience of working in schools. Complexity is driven by a range of factors including new, emerging or developing privacy law, children’s rights (including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child / KCSIE), an understanding of safeguarding / child protection whilst balancing a child’s right to learn, develop, and explore, and the risks of data exploitation through over sharing or inadvertent sharing of personal data. Privacy is a balancing act and sometimes, a voice of experience can quickly help you along.

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 leading to data exfiltration places schools in the cross hairs of harm.

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 Management App.
