Confidential data and information security in educational establishments
Information security issues are a part of educational establishment’s daily operation. Confidentiality’s purpose is not to conceal the institutions own operations but to secure privacy and common interest. All information, for example, of a student’s or a staff member’s health, disabilities, habits, hobbies, family-life and other relatable information is classified as confidential.
At schools and educational establishments confidential information is, for example:
- Personal data
- Feasibility assessment
- Absence information
- Health information
- Passwords etc. in IT-services
- Security arrangements
- Research data
- International operation
- Communication with authorities
- Confidential data concerning financial aid and other applications
Securing information in trade and industry
Email encryption in educational institution
In educational institutions there is a lot of confidential information that is communicated by email. Both the staff and the students have the need to send messages quickly. Email encryption enables messages, for example, of student exchange or authority cooperation to be exchanged safely. With the use of a straightforward email encryption solution, instructions can be made simple and with automation sending of messages containing confidential information can even be prevented.
Electronic forms at schools and educational establishments
Registration, deviations in security, applications for financial aid, scholarships, reimbursements of expenses and information related to international exchange programs, amongst others are easily managed with electronic forms. All data from the forms can be handled digitally and can be integrated to systems already used by the establishment. This way the time used to handle these applications is diminished considerably. The forms also can accept documents as attachments. This way a student can send a health statement or certificates of completed courses from other schools, for example.
Secure workspace for messaging in group and for sharing files
Teamwork in school projects is made easy with a secure workspace. For example, surveys can be carried out securely. Deltagon’s solution works great in situations where the project needs a secure but easy to use platform. User can be identified with email address, for example, and user management can be taken care of easily and centralized.
