Protecting Privacy outlines Lightspeed Systems pledge to the privacy and security of their customers—ensuring data shared and collected remains private and protected.

In 2014, student data privacy became a prime concern for global education. Lightspeed Systems responded by enacting transparent and comprehensive data privacy policies. Protecting Privacy: Lightspeed Systems Overview (Protecting Privacy) outlines the educational technology company’s data privacy and security practices and provides answers to the questions schools should ask any service providers handling or managing student data.

Recently reviewed and accepted by the Future of Privacy Forum, a Washington D.C. based organization committed to the advancement of responsible data privacy practices, Protecting Privacy outlines Lightspeed Systems pledge to the privacy and security of their customers—ensuring data shared and collected remains private and protected. In addition, Protecting Privacy includes an overview of the company’s data collection, storage, access, and retention procedures—all in place to limit the collection of personal student and staff information to that which is only necessary to utilize Lightspeed Systems products and services.

Protecting Privacy also provides information on security and privacy record audits, data centers, cloud compliance, development environments, and incident investigation and response. “We know student data privacy is critical,” shares Lightspeed Systems VP of Global Operations and Privacy Officer, John Genter. “And so is digital learning. That is why we provide solutions, backed by a comprehensive privacy policy, which enable schools to use classroom technology in safe and innovative ways.”

As another testament to the company’s commitment to safeguarding privacy, Lightspeed Systems was recently accepted as a Signatory on the Student Privacy Pledge, a worldwide pledge of leading educational technology providers.

Lightspeed Systems is a sponsor of CoSN’s Protecting Privacy Initiative. The company’s solutions are FERPA, COPPA, CIPA, and HIPAA complaint.
