In today's digital age, the security of sensitive data has never been more paramount. At Ahart Solutions, we recognize the profound importance of safeguarding the information entrusted to us by educational institutions, parents, staff, and students. Our approach to data security reflects our unwavering commitment to ensuring confidentiality, protecting privacy, and building trust through every step of the research process.
We keep individual student survey results separate from other district-housed data, including testing scores and demographic information. This prevents any unintended connections that could raise ethical concerns by compromising anonymity.
We understand that educational data is highly sensitive and must be handled with the utmost care. This is why our survey platform and dashboard providers hold industry-leading certifications that underscore our commitment to data security. Our compliance with SOC 2 and ISO/IEC 27001 standards demonstrates our dedication to maintaining stringent data protection practices. These certifications encompass a wide range of security controls and best practices that guarantee the highest level of data security. We go the extra mile by complying with essential data protection regulations such as FERPA, HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA. These certifications and compliance efforts are a testament to our dedication to meeting and exceeding the highest security standards.
At Ahart Solutions, transparency is a guiding principle. We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients fully understand how their data is handled, analyzed, and reported. Our transparent approach builds trust and empowers educational institutions to make informed decisions based on reliable insights. We maintain open lines of communication, sharing methodologies, findings, and data handling practices with our clients throughout the research process.
