Protect Education Data With Our Secure Shredding Services
Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When education records and documents are printed, or reports are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.
For that reason, every educational organisation is at risk regardless of size, type, or location. But in an industry that relies on privacy, the reality is that many information breaches happen not just because of inferior firewalls or weak passwords, but because of employee error or negligence. So, you may be doing everything you can but one member of staff casually dropping an old report or records into a recycling bin can undo everything.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Applies to all companies that handle the personal data of EU residents, including companies that are established outside the EU if they offer goods or services to EU residents or monitor their behaviour.
Learn to recognise the risks
In the education industry, it’s a safe bet that every document you or your employees handle contains some form of confidential information. Whether it’s education records or reports, or your own financial reports and billing data, you have a lot of information to secure.
If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your organisation could be at-risk for an information breach.
