WASHINGTON (PRWEB) MAY 29, 2018
Today, risk management technology provider Privva, Inc. expanded its vendor risk management solution into K12.
Privva’s Vendor Risk Management solution automates the security assessment and review process of third party vendors. This automated security process provides districts with a comprehensive understanding of policies and procedures of third party vendors and allows districts to better develop and track a risk remediation plan communicated with each vendor.
According to Ishan Girdhar, CEO of Privva, Inc., “EdTech is improving every aspect of education but it is a double edge sword. Utilizing technology and providing access to more vendors is opening districts up to significant data risk exposure. It is critical to know how each vendor is protecting the sensitive information you are sharing about students, parents, and employees to enable these services.”
Privva previously focused its offering in the legal sector, working with top law firms. Privva is now utilizing the lessons learned in an industry that requires the highest standards and applying them to the education market.
Academic institutions are prime targets for a data breach because they maintain and share sensitive and valuable information. It is critical to understand the security policies, procedures, and architecture of vendors that have access to sensitive information or access to your network. Privva assists with developing an ongoing vendor risk management program with regular, automated security assessment and remediation.
