Data privacy and security

OCLC has invested significantly in data center security. We have received registrations for meeting the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013. 

A September 2016 article in University Business Magazine stated:
“Recent highly publicized cyber-attacks have spurred a growing public awareness of the risk that sensitive personal information might be accessed by unauthorized third parties.  It is not as well-known that the industry sector with the highest number of breaches is higher education: since 2005, higher education institutions have been the victim of 539 breaches involving nearly 13 million known records. This trend may be due, in part, to the sheer number of personal records kept by these institutions, considering their ever-changing student bodies, as well as the valued open, collaborative environment of most colleges and universities.”

Working with a global service provider like OCLC, you can be assured that we take data security as our number one priority.
