Why Use SecureBackup for Schools and Universities
From public and private schools to community colleges and large universities, educational institutions archive a great deal of personal information belonging to staff and students. Student rosters, grades, birth dates, social security numbers and more are all part of normal personal data which needs to be recorded and saved. Sports teams keep records of injuries and other health related information that is all protected under the 1996 HIPPA legislation.
Computers, tablets, and even smart phones play a large role in today’s modern educational system. While this has improved the efficiency and perhaps the efficacy of today’s learning, this also creates challenges to protecting important files and personal data.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which monitors breaches of personal information that total more than 500 victims per incident, reports that through the first 4 months of 2017, there have been 100 such incidents. Hackers, theft, and improper disposal are main reasons that people have their identifying information compromised. These attacks can happen to individuals as well as large institutions such as schools and universities.
The SecureData Inc. Advantage
For many years, our parent company, Secure Data Recovery Services, has been the leader of the industry in data recovery. We have served the needs of large corporations, non-profits, government offices, and even NASA. Our years of experience have lead us to develop our own proprietary software, SecureBackup, to provide an affordable and simple solution that all can use to protect their important files. Our software can easily be downloaded and installed simply in just a few steps.
While it may not be possible to stop those who are determined to illegally access important information, it is possible to protect from permanent loss valuable records, health information, curriculum, and anything else that is stored on digital devices.
How SecureBackup Can Help
First, installation is simple and fast. Second, you can configure your SecureBackup to match your preferences in a few easy steps. You determine, which files or type of files you want to protect, where you want to back them up, and how often you want backups to be performed. Once installed and configured, SecureBackup works seamlessly in the background and it updates automatically to ensure you always have the latest security and improvements to protect your data.
You are able to choose multiple destinations to store your backup files. This means you can simultaneously create multiple backups to make sure you or someone you designate will always have access to your most recent backup file. After SecureBackup performs its scheduled backup, you will receive an email notification to ensure that the backup was successful.
If you ever lose your data or the ability to access your data from your device, you can have access to your backup files anywhere, anytime through the Web Portal. If your device can be repaired, your backup file can be used to restore your device. If you need to replace your device, all your protected files can be downloaded to your new device quickly and simply. Additionally, if you ever forget to take your computer, tablet, or smart phone with you or worse yet, have your device stolen, you can still access your stored files from any device that has an Internet connection.
This same feature also allows you to share homework, lesson plans, or any other file that has been backed up with those whom you choose: classmates, faculty, or administration.
