Powerful LMS Security for Corporate eLearning

One of the primary concerns corporate administrators have about their Learning Management Systems (LMS) is the safety of their data. Making sure that sensitive corporate information is not vulnerable to unauthorized users and managing access and use of the system is a critical factor when choosing a SaaS-based LMS vendor.

Whether your goal is to train employees or third-party business and channel partners, it’s important to understand the security features offered by any LMS under consideration. This is especially true in today’s compliance-driven business environment where GDPR, HIPAA, and other security breaches can be so costly to an organization.

Why LMS Security Matters

The importance of security for SaaS-based LMS platforms is driven by two basic factors:

  • Stolen business data, especially sensitive or proprietary information, can be extremely costly to an organization

  • If an online LMS portal is accessed by an authorized party with malicious intentions, it can completely disrupt your eLearning operations

While the extent of the damage caused by an attack or system compromise can vary greatly in degree, even a minor intrusion can endanger your employees’ personal information, expose proprietary business information, or halt the operations of your training program.

Key LMS Security Features to Consider

Given the importance protecting your learning management data and activities, there are a number of security features to consider when evaluating an LMS:

SSL Security

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a technology helps make web browsing safe by adding an encryption layer to the web protocol. SSL is now required on websites that handle credit card (or any other) method of payment. Today, SSL is viewed with such a high level of importance that most browsers will trigger alert that a website without SSL is unsafe.

Anti-Virus Software

The implementation of anti-virus software is a critical element toward ensuring that personal data and LMS content are protected against virtual threats.

Password Authentication

Proper password authentication helps ensure the safety and accuracy of passwords so that LMS data can only be accessed by authorized users. In practice, users may be given a specific number attempts to log in the LMS before being locked out of the system.

 

Domain-Based Registrations

The use of domain-based registrations restricts your learners to system registration only through the domains you choose to allow, such as your corporate domain.

User Roles and Permissions

The implementation of user roles and the association of specific permissions for each role will help prevent data from getting into the wrong hands, even if the user is authorized to access the LMS.
