Student Data Privacy

Lightspeed Systems®: A trusted partner to protect student.

Ensure data privacy compliance with Lightspeed Systems®

Student data privacy is a growing concern for schools, with hundreds of new laws, regulations, and guidelines passed and more students than ever learning off the school network. Lightspeed Systems can help with your student data privacy needs in three ways:

  1. Lightspeed Systems is committed to keeping the data we hold safe.
  2. With Lightspeed Analytics™, we provide reports on apps in use across your schools along with their privacy ratings and risks.
  3. Lightspeed Analytics also identifies rogue apps installed outside your IT processes that may violate policies and put student data privacy at risk. 

Identify rogue apps to maintain student data privacy

Teachers are implementing new tools every day—from conferences, free offers, or to support remote learning. Knowing how to protect student data in the sea of apps that often haven’t been vetted and may violate student data privacy policies is crucial. Lightspeed Analytics helps you identify rogue apps in use across your schools so you can either vet them or block them.

Assess the risk of apps used

We’ve pulled together data from our comprehensive database, our AI analysis of app policies and technology, independent researchers, and rating consortiums to present student data privacy ratings and risks in a simple, actionable report. Assess the potential risks of apps used throughout your schools to make informed decisions to maintain student data privacy.
