Data Privacy and Security

Published: 12/10/2019 2:06 PM

Whether discussing student achievement, program monitoring, education funding, accountability or other education-related topic, data drives the discussion and is foundational for decision making.

State and federal laws require the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to collect and store student and educator records. With this collection comes responsibilities to protect and secure the data. Data privacy and security measures are equally important - data security protects data from compromise by external attackers and malicious insiders, and data privacy governs how data is collected, shared and used. Information on Kentucky data collection systems.
