Sprig Security Tips

Keeping student data secure isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Follow Sprig Learning’s Security Tips to help ensure that schools, staff, and parents are all on the same page.

Establish a culture of student data privacy.

Data privacy should be part of your school culture – from the newest teacher to the top administrators. Ensure that all of your staff and faculty understand the importance of student data privacy and how they can help keep it secure.

Be wary of free online tools.

Education technology can be a huge helper in the classroom, but that doesn’t mean that every developer has your data privacy in mind. Be wary of free tools that ask for any kind of student information, and make sure to check their privacy policies before providing any sensitive information.

Encrypt everything.

Most schools have protection at the network level thanks to their firewalls, but that doesn’t protect against a stolen device. Make sure to encrypt all sensitive data in case one of your devices is stolen or compromised.

Secure your mobile device management.

With the ever-growing rise of mobile devices in the classroom, it’s important to have a secure mobile device management process. Look for tools that allow you to monitor and control a device remotely, and push software updates as soon as they are released to address any potential vulnerabilities.

Share student data collection policies with parents and caregivers.

Educators and administrators aren’t the only ones concerned with student data privacy. Provide parents and caregivers with a clear understanding of what information is being collected about their learners – and why. It’s important to ensure that all of the stakeholders in a child’s learning are aware and consent to data collection.

Ask questions.

Never be afraid to ask a technology partner for more information about how they manage student data privacy. They should be prepared to provide you with concrete examples of how they keep your data secure.
