Automated Policy Management At Specialist High School

Cryptzone : 14 February, 2012  (Application Story)
The Cardinal Allen school is meeting regulatory requirements with the use of NETconsent compliance suite from Cryptzone for automated compliance
Automated Policy Management At Specialist High School
Cryptzone is helping Cardinal Allen Catholic High School meet its legal and regulatory responsibilities. The specialist maths and computing college is using Cryptzone’s NETconsent Compliance Suite to automate its policy management life-cycle, drastically cutting its administration effort and curtailing the policy paper trail – important given the school’s gold accredited ECO School status. Automation guarantees it captures everyone’s agreement to mandatory policies where a signature is required and prevents any one, who could pose a risk, from logging on.

All schools, universities and colleges have policies and procedures that students and staff must follow: Health and Safety, Child Protection, Anti-bullying, IT Acceptable Usage, Mobile Phone Policy to name just a few. Legal and regulatory responsibilities place pressure on educational establishments not only to create and publish these policies, but to ensure they are read, understood and enforced. Some compliance requirements even demand proof that people have agreed to abide by the policy, which further increases the administrative workload.

Cryptzone’s NETconsent Compliance Suite delivers a proactive and sustainable approach to handling the policy management lifecycle. It is an easy-to-use Windows based system, which raises policy awareness and understanding amongst staff and students and enables schools to measure policy compliance effortlessly. Cardinal Allen School can tailor its policies for different groups of users - for example its staff, students and even occasional supply teachers. Accurate real-time reporting shows the school who has received, read and agreed to its policies, confirming its compliance status at any time. It can drill down into departments to identify the greatest potential areas of risk and address them.

“Ensuring students and staff use our computing services safely and responsibly is very important” says Mr Mooney, Head teacher at Cardinal Allen School. “Signing the Acceptable Use Policy is the first step to making everyone IT security aware and enables us to hold them accountable for their actions. As a specialist computing college, we are delighted to be pioneering the use of NETconsent software within education. Automating the communication and sign up to our school’s IT policies will not only be more efficient, but it will help us to reduce our paper consumption.”
