DEEWR - Learning Identity Management Framework (LIMF) (September 2008 - January 2009)
Galexia, in partnership with Link Affiliates, has conducted research on privacy concerns arising from the implementation of a Learning Identity Management Framework (LIMF). The Framework is aimed at creating an electronic system, which effectively manages the transfer of student data. The existing manual system works so that when students move from one school to another, intra or inter jurisdiction, a Student Data Transfer Note is sent between the two facilities to indicate certain personal information about that student. The Learning Identity Management Framework aims to improve upon this model, through implementing an efficient electronic system.
A committee at the University of Southern Queensland on behalf of the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations sought advice on transferring the existing Student Data Transfer Notes manual system to an electronic one.
Galexia’s research was based on an understanding of the current issues surrounding privacy, business processes and data transfers. Galexia has assisted the committee by identifying key privacy challenges and suggesting possible approaches to overcome these. Galexia produced a report in January 2009, which outlined their findings and presented feasible strategies to manage identifiable risks.
