60,000 Educators Use GoldKey

GoldKey® Tokens with b² cryptography are being used by teachers and school administrators to secure access to records for over 2 million students worldwide.
Protecting Student Records and Privacy
As education progresses through the digital transformation, cyber security has become a top priority. Cyber attackers are specifically targeting the identities of students (minors). Stolen student identities have a high value because the lifecycle of fraud goes undetected for much longer than that of adults. Cyber attackers are using high effective strategies such as phishing emails to circumnavigate firewalls and other defenses.
School administrators must meet with these challenges to comply with student privacy laws and regulations such as FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). Student information communicated by email, text or video is considered personal identifiable information and must be protected. This is why cyber security is a top priority of K-12 administrators.
K-12 Organizations Increasingly Targeted for Cyberattacks
“K-12 organizations are increasingly prime targets for cyberattacks, because of the large amount of student and employee data they collect, produce, store and analyze, and the perception they are less well-hardened against attacks than other industries.”

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of minor children is an especially prime target for identity theft. A young person’s data has a longer life span, thereby creating a higher-profile risk for liability, and greater destruction of trust and reputation.
