The introduction of GDPR has highlighted the need to ensure any personal data you hold is secure.
There are a number of ways you can keep the data you hold secure but accessible from outside the school including Office 365, Windows 10 with BitLocker, and encrypted memory sticks.
Does your school meet all the requirements for the Schools Financial Value Standard?
Have you achieved this whilst still conforming to the Data Protection Act?
Does your school have a Microsoft Volume Licence Agreement, such as an Enrolment for Education Solutions (EES) Agreement?
If so, your staff and students can get free access to Microsoft Office 365 for personal use.
Manage all your schools iPads and mobile devices from one place with Schools ICT’s Mobile Device Management Service
The benefit of using a mobile device management solution means that you are in complete control of what resources a student can see and access. Screens can be fully customised to support different learners and display the apps, files and resources you want the student to use and even place them on screen in a position you choose. The settings can be loaded to all devices in one go – no more having to update each individual device or wait for your school technician’s visit before new versions are installed.
