BeyData LibrarianBeyData’s “School Librarian Project” puts student privacy at the forefront with an advanced risk management system available to school districts regardless of their size and budget

July 12, 2017, Concord, NH – BeyData,  (https://beydata.com a leading provider of Risk Management, Data Protection and Compliance Solutions, today announced the release of “BeyData School Librarian”, an educational initiative designed to allow K-12 schools to utilize BeyData’s commercially available, hybrid risk management solution, at no-cost. School Librarian will allow K12 IT Administrators and Educators to identify, assess, prioritize, remediate, mitigate and monitor security and privacy risk. BeyData platform technologies are forged from 20+ years of front-line security, data protection and compliance experience, fortified by deep engineering and research expertise.  BeyData Librarian’s unique and distributed hybrid architecture allows business users to work in their own environment, without requirements for IT, scaling to support small and medium businesses as well as global enterprise organizations.

 

With School Librarian, primary and secondary schools of any size and budget, anywhere in the world, will be able to assess and mitigate privacy and security risk for their students. The risk of unprotected data and systems has never been greater than it is today, particularly for primary and secondary schools. With small IT teams and teachers with limited resources, protecting the personal information of students in the face of overwhelming demand for “online Apps and educational resources” has become an almost insurmountable burden.  In the United States the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) imposes obligations on websites and services directed to children under 13 years of age. Yet schools and IT administrators depend on these resources and APPs for their core curriculums. Understanding, addressing and monitoring that risk is not only a regulatory obligation, but the right thing to do. BeyData School Librarian brings an elegant and creative technology solution that can be seamlessly deployed across organization, regardless of their size.




School Librarian will enable schools of any size to build a simple and easily maintained privacy risk management program that will provide confidence to educators, parents, students and vendors that the proper controls are in place to protect children-our most vulnerable and important resources.  The K12 license also provides access to free training resources and videos.
