Data Security FAQs
Connected devices in your business can include smart speakers, web-enabled thermostats, wireless office equipment, and streaming camera systems like WatchMeGrow. These devices are part of the “Internet of Things,” a rapidly growing network of physical objects that include an IP address for internet connectivity. These objects are Internet-enabled and communicate with each other and with cloud software that operates them.
The connectivity of these devices carries an inherent risk of unknown third parties gaining access to your business’s data. For example, your school may use software that manages enrollments, student records, and tuition payments. The data, including private records and credit card information, stored in this software is sensitive and can land in the hands of unknown people if connected devices are not secure.
Compromised data is a very serious threat to a company’s reputation. Loss of trust is the biggest risk a childcare provider can face.
There are several important factors to consider when assessing the security of web-enabled camera systems. The software that runs your system should be designed for the business of childcare and all of its unique requirements, it should use individual and encrypted passwords for each user, and it should be audited by an independent IT firm.
Unsecured feeds can easily be viewed by anyone who cares to look for them. In fact, sites like Insecam.org offer a directory of online surveillance security cameras. Users can select a country to watch live street, traffic, parking, office, road, beach and home webcams. Feeds are available that show medical facilities, inside homes, and inside childcare centers – no passwords required.
Selecting streaming video software that has encrypted usernames, passwords, and video is the best protection against this kind of unsecured feed.
Compromised data is a very serious threat to a company’s reputation. Loss of trust is the biggest risk a childcare provider can face. The first thing on every parent’s list of requirements when choosing a preschool is safety and security. If the streaming video system a school uses to provide an extra level of accountability is not constantly monitored for security breaches, your business can unknowingly provide public access to your customers’ personal information.
With regular headlines revealing the latest security breaches, consumers are more aware than ever of the responsibility businesses have to protect their personal information. Protection from identity theft is big business – with companies like LifeLock, Experian and McAfee earning millions to provide security to individuals. Customers expect your business will safeguard the sensitive data they share with you.
