FAQ about IBP tool
What is IBP?
The Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science, in collaboration with Kennisnet, SIVON (a cooperative of school boards in the Netherlands), the Primary Education Council, and the Secondary Education Council, have united under the banner of the Digital Safe Education program (Digitaal Veilig Onderwijs). Their collective mission is to create an education sector where every student can learn and every employee can work digitally in a safe environment. And that is why the Information Security and Privacy Framework (IBP) was conceived. This framework empowers school boards to enhance information security and strengthen the protection of personal data, with information security defined as the "maintenance of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
Why does education sector deserve extra attention?
Educational institutions, such as schools and universities, are at high risk for data privacy and security breaches for several reasons. To start, educational institutions manage substantial volumes of sensitive information, encompassing student records as well as personal family information, including medical histories, family structures, ethnicity, religion, and more. Secondly, the advance of technology in education has increased the volume of digital data, making them attractive targets for cyberattacks. Moreover, data breaches can damage an institution's reputation, compromise trust, and result in legal consequences.
We know very well that mismanaged data is a big concern of educators as it can affect students, staff, and the institution itself. Individuals may face privacy violations, financial losses, or emotional distress.In today's digital age, taking responsibility for data privacy is paramount to protect the well-being and integrity of educational institutions and the individuals they serve.
And this is where we can help... PrivacyPerfect introduces ISMS with IBP framework!
Why is IBP the perfect tool for ISMS in education?
In our modern society, sensitive information and data are constantly in our midst. The safeguarding of personal data is of paramount importance, particularly within the field of education, where a vulnerable demographic is involved. Educational institutions are entrusted with the data of students, parents, and staff, making it crucial for school boards and employees to take responsibility for thoughtful data processing and robust data security.
This is where the standards framework comes into play, introducing standards related to both information security and privacy. These standards are categorised into fifteen domains for information security and one dedicated domain for privacy with more in the making.
