Prowise presents key foundations for privacy and security in the classroom
During Bett, the world’s largest education fair which takes place from 22 to 25 January in London, visitors can arm themselves against potential dangers in the classroom. In a special ‘privacy and security zone’ safety in schools can be tested.
Security is a hot topic in the world of education. There is almost no ‘industry’ in which so much privacy-sensitive data is circulating. Personal data, test results and other privacy-sensitive information are reviewed daily in the classroom. That’s why as a school, especially with the future of children and students in mind, you want everything to be set in place perfectly in terms of privacy and security. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, there are dangers lurking that not everyone is aware of.
Take, for example, the recent major cyber attack at Maastricht University. The university was forced to pay a ‘ransom‘ to hackers in order to secure student data and nullify the consequences of the data breach.
Arm yourself against dangers
The special privacy and security zone on the Prowise stand is called ‘Creating a Safe Classroom Environment’. Nine themes (from data storage to hackers) which focus on security in the modern classroom allow visitors to review how privacy is organised in their schools. All the key areas in the field of privacy and security that teachers, pupils and directors have to deal with every day. Sometimes without them noticing it. Time to open your eyes and protect yourself against possible dangers.
With ‘Creating a Safe Classroom Environment’ schools test which dangers are around the corner in the classroom, to what extent they are prepared for them and what they can do about them. Prowise is the only touchscreen supplier to meet the strict privacy requirements of the UK Ministry of Defence. As a result, Prowise has been the regular supplier of touchscreens and interactive board software to various Defence training institutes for a number of years. The Dutch company has already launched the safe interactive whiteboard selection guide and is happy to help schools towards a safe digitisation of the classroom.
In this way, teachers can do what they do best in a safe and carefree way: teaching passionately.
Prowise’s privacy experts cordially invite interested parties to the Bett stand in London: SG20. More information about all Prowise products, classroom security and the stand can be found at bett.prowise.com.
