Skyward Releases Data Security and Privacy Protection Guidelines

Skyward announces the release of privacy and security guidelines to help schools protect student data. A copy of the guidelines is available for download at skyward.com/protectyourdata.

Districts can safeguard their data by configuring strict security access, discussing the important of data privacy with staff members and conducting routine security audits. The recommendations also assist districts with their security measures, whether storage is implemented on-premise or through cloud computing. Districts that choose to store their data on-site are asked to consider key security steps, such as establishing separate network access points and creating a disaster recovery policy. Similarly, the guidelines offer suggestions for cloud-based storage. Districts that use cloud services should ensure their provider meets recommended standards and provide database monitoring services.
