Quick Security Tips for Vendors
As part of our on-going support to vendors, especially start-ups and small business providers in the ed tech market, we have recently published our “Quick Security Tips for Vendors” on FERPA|Sherpa. This tool, a companion to our “Quick Privacy Tips for Vendors,” is designed to provide a simple baseline of security principles and practices as an ed tech business grows its products and services. Of course, this list of tips does not constitute a complete security policy, but if followed, it will ensure that vendors have taken the best, first steps toward responsible protection of student data, as these tips flag many of the common key concerns. A company that implements student data privacy and security policies and procedures in compliance with these 2 checklists will have a strong foundation moving forward.
