Mobile Data Protection Employed At Dudley Schools

Data Encryption Systems (DES) : 30 July, 2012  (Application Story)
Schools in Dudley conform to ICO recommendations with the use of encryption technology from DESlock for protecting data on mobile and portable computing devices
Mobile Data Protection Employed At Dudley Schools
DESlock has assisted the schools of Dudley Metropolitan Borough to protect data stored on mobile and portable devices, supported by RM Education plc. By investing in DESlock+, an easily managed encryption product, Dudley's schools can secure all of their mobile data against the threat of lost or stolen information, facilitating compliance with ICO recommendations.

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) recommends that portable and mobile devices, including portable media and any other device or medium that is removed from or accessed outside of the physical secure space should be encrypted to guard against compromise. Also recommended is the secure deletion of any data no longer required and the encryption of data being transmitted electronically between systems and locations, such as when using email.

Shirley Hackett, Education Lead Officer from Dudley Grid for Learning, commented: “For schools, the secure management of sensitive personal data is a big issue and several schools and local authorities have been fined for losing unencrypted laptops and memory sticks. It was important to Dudley schools that we conformed to the recommendations, and were seen to treat our data seriously.”

RM has worked with DESlock+ since early 2008; the aim of this collaboration was to make certain that DESlock+ addressed the needs of teachers and other education staff in a typical environment. Consequently the DESlock+ user experience and feature set have been directly influenced by teaching staff through feedback and consultation with RM. Richard Cornell, Technical Solution Architect and Information Security Officer for RM and responsible for the Dudley Grid for Learning commented: “The greatest advantage of DESlock+ is its ability to manage users and devices via the internet, independent of network or directory structure. The support provided by the DESlock+ team is always fantastic and they are always ready to incorporate changes to better support RM. DESlock+ is a very important product in  RM's security arsenal, and with the help of this kind of product and support allows us to service our educational clients with high end technology at affordable prices.”
