Why Cisco Cloudlock Cisco Cloudlock helps school districts gain visibility and control of data and users in their cloud applications like Google and O365, while enforcing regulatory, operational, and security compliance easily and effectively. Cloudlock's platform allows districts to automatically remediate data loss and exposures resulting from inappropriate sharing, compromised accounts, or connected applications. As Cisco Cloudlock is a frictionless, cloud-native solution, districts can implement it within minutes, all while conserving valuable resources and enabling cloud adoption.

Statement of Value for K-12 DATA S H E E T Cisco Cloudlock Enables Institutions to Adopt Critical K-12 Controls: 1) Automate Student Data Protection in the Cloud. Cloudlock's pre-built policies continuously monitor your cloud environment for protected data, such as FERPA, HIPAA/PHI, Individualized Education and 504 Plans, and more. If found stored or shared outside of compliance and/or acceptable use, a remediation workflow is implemented, allowing districts to apply automated actions ranging from notifying an administrator to revoking the excessive sharing. 2) Promote Digital Citizenship and End-user Awareness. When - not if - users violate data policies, Cloudlock educates users with automated notifications explaining the violation, which is proven to greatly reduce exposures over time, while tying into greater district initiatives to promote Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) and cyber awareness. 3) Detect Compromised Accounts and Insider Threats. Cloudlock continuously monitors user behavior to detect anomalous activities, such as suspicious logins or downloads, and allows districts to prevent malicious actors from stealing data. 4) Discover and Control Connected 3rd Party Apps. Cloudlock's Apps Firewall detects all applications that have been granted access to the school environment using District credentials. These are unsanctioned apps and websites that have access to the sanctioned cloud environment. With Cloudlock, districts can regulate which applications have access and which users are authorized to install, and revoked any unapproved applications. 5) Monitor Student Welfare in Cloud Applications. Pre-configured policies look for keywords indicative of cyber bullying, suicide, discrimination, violence, and other behavior that may put students in harm's way and notify the appropriate administrator.
