Data Security

There are a number of features to our data security and data management policy that we draw your attention to in the following examples.

– 
We subscribe to Opendata.gov and the bulk of our work utilises data from open data sources. We compile, link and secure large national data sets on our Data Cloud and then use these to produce comprehensive analysis for our research, minimum grade generation and reports.

– When schools and colleges upload data to our Data Cloud it is wiped from our servers after the requisite report is generated. Unlike other reporting models, we do not retain any school’s data to create ‘subscriber datasets’ in order to conduct benchmarking etc.

Infrastructure: We use an EC2 Elastic Cloud with servers located in the UK. This affords us access to a state of the art, enterprise scale security environment.

Information Commissioner’s Office; We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office for the work described above. The ICO is the UK’s independent public body set up to protect personal information and to promote good practice in relation to data collation and use.
