How safe is Brightspace?

Updated on

On May 25th 2018 the Dutch government adopted a law in accordance with the European GDPR: de Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG). Brightspace was chosen with AVG in mind and therefore complies with the new regulation. Everyone at Radboud University has formally agreed with the new privacy agreement.

Brightspace is safe, but the security of the entire system (including links to different systems such as OSIRIS) is as strong as the weakest link. That is why Brightspace has been tested by the Digital Security group of Radboud University in an attempt to spot possible errors or risks. This extensive test has resulted in the definitive acceptance and implementation of Brightspace.
