Proxy Access to Accounts Necessary to Conduct Business or Research

Approval to access the account should be given either by prior proxy access to the individual’s account or by written recommendation and justification by the head of the department or director and approval by a senior leadership team or other designee acting on the basis of approved policy and law.

Greensprings School takes steps to ensure that confidential information collected online is secure. These steps include: ongoing User education; using tools in an effort to restrict unauthorized access, viruses, phishing and hacking attempts; and monitoring activity to identify potential system threats.
