Our comprehensive security program helps protect sensitive data at every step.
Our success depends on building highly secure product and infrastructure. Our desire is to help schools, parents, and application partners create a secure learning environment where students can thrive.
We know it’s not enough to just write secure code—for security to be effective, it has to be ingrained in our culture and embedded in every part of the business. That’s why security is part of everyone’s job at Dream Chaser Kids: 100% of our people receive security training. To lead this program, we hire security experts who have extensive security experience for market-leading cloud services and are passionate about creating safe digital learning ecosystems.
Our comprehensive security-by-design approach helps to protect sensitive data at every step—whether it’s the first data transfer or one-millionth login.
Best practices and latest technologies working for youHelping schools secure their dataWe know data protection is a key priority for our district customers, and we understand how challenging it can be for districts to effectively manage risk and ensure high data protection standards across all of the district’s unique technology partners. At Dream Chaser Kids, we’re not only committed to meeting those standards—we have an outstanding security track record and are regularly investing in new tools, technologies, and enhancements to stay ahead of risks.
Parents, schools and foundations turn to us to help manage and safeguard Student Data shared with technology partners. Instead of maintaining and troubleshooting custom scripts with dozens of application providers, districts can easily create and update student accounts in education software and control how much data is shared through Dream Chaser Kids.
With Dream Chaser Kids, parents and partner organizations have one security-focused platform for sharing data with authorized applications, a platform that’s regularly tested and optimized for data security.
Full encryption in transit and at rest Dream Chaser Kids helps secure student information by encrypting it in transit and at rest. We use modern cryptographic algorithms like AES256-GCM and follow key management best practices with strict user access control and multifactor authentication.
Secure development lifecycle From initial design concept to final testing, our security protocols inform every aspect of product and infrastructure development. All development projects, including new products and features, require a security review process. It includes threat modeling and code review for any major change.
Cloud-hosted infrastructure is a more secure infrastructure Increasingly, schools and foundation partners are adopting cloud infrastructure instead of on-premise models for one key reason: security. Most education software providers also have adopted cloud services to host their products, as have healthcare providers, financial institutions, and government agencies. While on-premise systems need to be maintained, updated, configured, and secured individually, cloud services typically offer key benefits that provide stronger data security management and practices.
Cloud service providers have greater security expertise running servers in the cloud across thousands of customers over many years.
Cloud service providers are experienced in navigating and managing a broad array of security requirements, including most stringent security standards, such as HIPAA, COPPA, GDPR, and SOC.
Cloud service providers have a much more substantial investment in both network and physical security than on-premise systems could typically provide.
Our infrastructure runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), an industry leader in cloud services and data security. Ernst & Young LLP performs the AWS System and Organization Controls audit and issues reports that demonstrate how AWS achieves these key compliance controls and objectives. The AWS SOC 2 and other reports are available on the AWS compliance site.
Comprehensive independent third-party security evaluation Our team continually monitors for suspicious activity and employs automated threat detection alerting and response processes. We engage top third-party security firms who perform regular audits and external code reviews, and we make these audits available upon request.
